Nissan Leaf Demo
We had a unique opportunity to get some footage of the Nissan Leaf Tour that is going across the country. One of our contributors works at a Nissan Dealer and had the chance to drive the new Nissan Leaf. We are petrol heads here at The Car Life but we also see that technology advances are changing the manufacturers lineups rapidly. The Nissan Leaf is the first 100% electric car besides the Tesla roadster that will be for sale and able to drive on the road. Our guy on the inside was surprised at how well the car drives, how quiet it is, and how smoothly and effortless it accelerates. He went in thinking he wouldn't be impressed by it but came out thinking that electric cars can be the solution to the commuter vehicle. While we know that gasoline powered cars aren't going anywhere in the near future we do like to see unique advances in the industry.

2016 Nissan Leaf 30Kwh Extended Range - new 155 mile electric car on test [Review]
Full report at http://www.redferret.net/?p=50958. The new extended range Nissan Leaf boasts a 30kWh battery capable of a range of 155 miles, which is 26% more than the original Leaf. While this is a welcome improvement, we're not going to start shouting from the houses just yet, since it still won't completely remove range anxiety from those who do more than a strictly defined daily commute. Overall however, the car retains all the same features which make it so popular with EV owners. Roomy, surprisingly nimble and easy to drive, and with a nice center console control panel which again does its job well. The new model also comes with a brand new 8 year, 100,000 mile battery warranty, which is nice to have. Full report at http://www.redferret.net/?p=50958
