Nissan LEAF 100% Eletric Car

Nissan is jumping to the electric cars thing. While this is not exactly a “surprise” news. I got little more details about their new car “LEAF” from their website. The best part of this car is the torque. 100% of the torque is available at the 0 RPM. i.e. you don’t have to press the pedal hard when its loaded with five adults , you simply got all that pulling power with a small tap of the pedal.

Check out the specs and info at Nissan site.

Q: how much torque does the leaf have?
A: The exact specs of the LEAF are still under development. It does, however, have 100% torque at 0 RPM!

Check the video with five adults which includes Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn and Junichiro Koizumi the ex Japanese Prime Minister riding it to the stage.

Don’t get scared by the initial Japanese. The video is in English. There is a bit of the “Hi Tech” clip starting at 8:20 mark, watch it out.

And post your comments.
