The New Nissan LEAF's improved chassis, adapted by Research and Development for the European market, makes for better handling resulting in more fun and excitement at the wheel. Improvements in performance and power have meant greater choice in terms of the size of vehicle, whereas previously electric cars were tiny, funny looking cars, now they come in all shapes and sizes up to attractive family sized cars. Power steering, air conditioning and all the comforting luxuries you’re used to are all included, plus a few new ones. Your smart phone and laptop can communicate with your LEAF so you can check out charging points on your route, start the cabin heating or cooling so it’s comfortable as soon as you get in. There’s no exhaust pipe and nasty fumes to inhale when you walk into the garage either, that is something to make a noise about.
Since the first generation of electric vehicles many years ago, technology, design and efficiency have improved beyond recognition. No longer a slow, unresponsive drive - electric cars like the Nissan LEAF are now a viable, attractive option for all kinds of driver. More and more of the world’s major car manufacturers now have, or are planning to introduce an electric vehicle to their range, maximising Government incentives to make them a affordable choice. Electric vehicles now offer dynamic acceleration, improved torque and motorway speeds that deliver comparable driving experience and comfort to petrol and diesel vehicles, only quieter, cheaper and with significantly less impact on the environment. All the fun - none of the fumes.
The new Nissan Carwings system enables you to control the heating and charging of your Nissan LEAF remotely and also logs information on charging, usage patterns and distance driven.
