All about the Nissan LEAF

In a world where automakers are competing to make the most eco-friendly vehicle, the 2010 Nissan LEAF may be the undisputed winner. The Nissan Motor Company recently unveiled this zero-emission hatchback that runs efficiently on a lithium-ion battery and officials plan to release the LEAF to the public in late 2010 for Europe, Japan and the United States.

In addition to being a zero-emission vehicle, Nissan also boasts that the new LEAF is going to be an affordable vehicle for those who want to be eco-friendly without breaking their budget. However, Nissan is not releasing any specific pricing details until the LEAF gets closer to the sale date.

Unlike vehicles that have an internal combustion engine, the Nissan LEAF has no tailpipe because there are no greenhouse gases or CO2 emissions. The lithium-ion batteries provide a range of about 100 miles on a full charge. That is due in part to the regenerative braking system working in combination with the lithium-ion batteries. According to Nissan’s consumer research, the 100 mile range is ideal for more than 70 percent of people buying new cars. It’s enough to get to work and back and even make a side trip or two along the way.
