Bay Area New Nissan Dealer, Nissan of Oakland Celebrates the First Birthday of Nissan LEAF ™

Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — Bay Area New Nissan Dealer, Nissan of Oakland is proud to celebrate the first birthday of the Nissan LEAF™, the first and only mass-produced vehicle that is 100% electric, uses zero gas, and has no tailpipe because there are zero emissions.

The Nissan LEAF™ offers a high response 80kW AC synchronous electric motor with a range of up to 100 miles per charge, a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery, a 3.3kW onboard charger and much more.

Featuring comfort for five passengers including 5 doors, speeds up to 90 mph, and a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as part of their New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), the Nissan LEAF ™ was named 2011 World Car of the Year at the New York International Auto Show last year.

The Nissan LEAF™ has continued to win awards since its introduction including a “Top Safety Pick” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety given only to vehicles that achieve the Institute’s highest rating of “Good” in front, rear and side impact protection.

Kelley Blue Book also named the Nissan LEAF™ as one of its 2011 Top 10 Green Cars not only because of its high mileage delivery per charge, but also because of the recycled materials used throughout the vehicle.

The Nissan LEAF™ also received the prestigious distinction of being named to Ward’s 10 Best Engines list, the first time in the 17-year history of the magazine that a power system without a combustion engine was chosen.

Carlos Tavares, Chairman, Nissan Americas, said, “The inclusion of Nissan LEAF™ in Ward’s “10 Best Engines” demonstrates that the Nissan LEAF™ can compete with all top vehicles, no matter the propulsion system.”
