2011 Nissan Leaf SL Power Up, Engine, Test Drive, and In Depth Tour
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the 2011 Nissan Leaf SL Zero Emission Electric Vehicle. During this
presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all
about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the
occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use
most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that
before, you could only get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout
the video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the
vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast
car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

Nissan Leaf VSP Vechicle Sound for Pedestrians
http://www.leafownersgroup.com In developing the sound system, Nissan
studied behavioral research of the visually impaired and worked with
cognitive and acoustic psychologists. After looking at applied original
technology developed to reduce vehicle noise and conducting tests in Japan
and abroad, the Approaching Vehicle Sound for Pedestrians system was
The sine-wave sound system sweeps from 2.5kHz at the high end to a low of
600Hz, an easily audible range across age groups. Nissan worked to avoid a
sound range that would add unnecessary noise to the environment (around
Depending on the speed and status (accelerating or decelerating) of Nissan
LEAF, the sound system will make sweeping, high-low sounds. For instance,
when Nissan LEAF is started, the sound will be louder, so a visually
impaired person would be aware that a nearby car was beginning operations.
And when a car is in reverse, the system will generate an intermittent
sound. The sound system ceases operation when Nissan LEAF tops 30km/h and
enters a sound range where regular road noise is high. It engages again as
Nissan LEAF slows to under 25km/h.
The system is controlled through a computer and synthesizer in the dash
panel, and the sound is delivered through a speaker in the engine
compartment. A switch inside the vehicle can turn off sounds temporarily.
The system automatically resets to "On" at the next ignition cycle.
Nissan Leaf 2013/14 - testing the world's best selling electric car [Review]
http://www.redferret.net/?p=42084. The Nissan Leaf 2013/14 is the latest
model of the world's best selling electric car. The Leaf Tekna which we
used for a week, comes fully loaded with heated seats, heated steering
wheel, a solar panel on the rear wing and the typical features of most
modern EV cars.
We found it to be a pleasure to drive and surprisingly nimble for such a
spacious vehicle. More details can be found at www.redferret.net.
the new sound - Nissan LEAF
The 100% electric Nissan LEAF has sounds for turning on, sounds for backing
up and sounds for driving. Petrol cars have something similar, but it's
Nissan Leaf winter test in Norway after 20 months of ownership
This is a test of the Nissan Leaf 2013 model after many months of use.
Total km is now 20 000 km. The battery is still as good as when the car was
The car has really worked well in a total period. We tend to charge it
to 80% if we require more killometer. Charging it to 100% so you can
drive about 120 killometer in -6 degrees
Nissan Leaf 2013 acceleration 0 - 100 km/h
This is the 2013 Nissan Leaf accelerating from 0 - 100 km/h in 10.1
seconds. This car has a electric engine which produces 110 bhp. I think
this is a god car for city driving, and it has a bad range. I where driving
to my cabin, which is 60 km and i had 10 km left when came up to my cabin.
I would never buy a car like this.. But funny driving electric car, where
is the sound? Tesla is so much better in every ways!

2012 NISSAN LEAF COLD START
Nissan says that the car has a top speed of over 150 km/h (93 mph). Its
motor is rated at 80 kilowatts (110 hp) and 280 newton metres (210
lb·ft). Unofficially, 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) performance has been
tested at 9.9 seconds.
The Leaf uses a front-mounted electric motor driving the wheels, powered by
a 86 megajoules (24 kW·h) lithium ion battery pack rated to deliver up to
90 kilowatts (120 hp) power. The pack contains air-cooled, stacked
laminated battery cells with lithium manganate cathodes. The
battery and control module together weigh 300 kilograms (660 lb) and the
specific energy of the cells is 140 W·h/kg. Each battery pack costs
Nissan an estimated US$18,000 (as of May 2010). Under its
five-cycle testing, the United States Environmental Protection Agency found
the Leaf's energy consumption to be 765 kJ/km (34 kWh/100 miles) and rated
the Leaf combined fuel economy equivalent at 99 MPGe (2.4 L/100 km), with
an equivalent 106 mpg-US (2.22 L/100 km; 127 mpg-imp) in city driving and
92 mpg-US (2.6 L/100 km; 110 mpg-imp) on highways.
The 24 kWh battery pack consists of 48 modules and each module contains
four cells, a total of 192 cells, and is assembled by Automotive Energy
Supply Corporation (AESC) -- a joint venture between Nissan, NEC and NEC
Energy Devices, at Zama, Japan.
The Leaf's design locates the battery, the heaviest part of any EV, below
the seats and rear foot space, keeping the center of gravity as low as
possible and increasing structural rigidity compared to a conventional
The battery pack is expected to retain 70% to 80% of its capacity after 10
years but its actual lifespan depends on how often fast charging (440-volt)
is used and also on environmental factors. Nissan said the battery has
a "lifespan of 5--10 years under normal use". The Leaf's battery is
guaranteed by Nissan for eight years or 100,000 miles (160,000 km)
(see Warranty sub-section below under United States for limitations).
In addition to the main battery, the Leaf also has an auxiliary 12-volt
lead--acid battery that provides power to the car computer systems and
accessories such as the audio system, supplemental restraint systems,
headlights and windshield wipers. The small solar panel on the Leaf
rear spoiler (in the United States, only comes with SL trim) helps to
charge this accessory battery.
Nissan recommends owners the following preventive actions to help maximize
the lithium-ion battery's useful life and its ability to hold a charge:
Avoid exposing a vehicle to ambient temperatures above 120 °F (49 °C)
for over 24 hours.
Avoid storing a vehicle in temperatures below −13 °F (−25 °C) for
over 7 days.
Avoid exceeding 70 to 80% state of charge when using frequent (more
than once per week) fast or quick charging.
Allow the battery charge to go below 80% before charging.
Avoid leaving the vehicle for over 14 days where the Li-ion battery
available charge gauge reaches a zero or near zero (state of charge).
Chris Emerson - One Year Driving the Nissan Leaf
My good friend Chris Emerson has driven a Nissan Leaf for the last year,
and we spent an afternoon chatting about his experiences driving an
electric vehicle. Friendly warning that this is a long video, but Chris is
a pretty insightful guy. If you've been curious about EV's in general (and
the Leaf specifically) this is a pretty in-depth look at what owning one in
Los Angeles is like.

Nissan showed the world an all-electric plug-in vehicle could be
affordable, when they introduced the Leaf hatchback back in 2011. After 4
years on the market and new competition from BMW, Volkswagen, Chevy, and
Ford, does the best-selling EV have what it takes to hold onto its sales
