Few days ago I wrote about GM’s Volt, an electric car that can go up to 230 mpg. Now it’ is Nissan’s turn to unveil their own electric car called Nissan Leaf. Nissan said that the Leaf beats the Volt by 137 mpg. According to Nissan, the Leaf electric car gets up to 367 mpg or 60% more fuel efficient.
Nissan Leaf is a zero-emissions electric car and 100% electric. It burns no gas and produces zero emissions. It is a 5-door family car, that can seat p to 5 passengers and can speed up to 90 mph. Nissan Leaf is powered by a fully rechargeable lithium ion battery where a single charge can run up to 100 miles. As for pricing, Leaf is cheaper than the GM Volt’s estimated price of $40,000 while Nissan Lean will be priced between $25,000-$33,000. The Leaf is not available in the market yet but soon an online pre-order system will be available at nissan's website.
