Ever since released in December 2010, the Nissan LEAF has continued to increase its dominance, becoming a true auto industry competitor. The Nissan LEAF is currently selling at unheard of rates all around big cities in the USA.
Nissan’s all-electric vehicle launched two and a half years ago and is widely successful partially due to the affordable price, updated systems and great styling. In many states drivers have been able to save thousands with the tax incentive cash back programs while also having the ability to drive in the HOV lane. Nissan EV Marketing and Sales employee, Lisa Farra describes the electric vehicle stating, “The LEAF is hot, especially the ‘S’ trim. People are buying them literally before the truck delivers them to the lot in some markets.”
Along with great styling and price, Nissan’s are known for their abundant safety features. This year the Nissan LEAF was appointed to the 2013 IHSS Top Safety Pick list. Some safety features that attributed to the title include the LEAFS good ratings in front, side, rollover and rear crash tastings.

It seems that in the past few years, Earth Day has gotten a much-needed spotlight in communities throughout the United States and, of course, on the internet. We all need to make efforts to become more environmentally conscious.
In today’s world, companies have to become more “green” in order to be acceptable to the American people. Nissan does its part through hybrid and all-electric cars like the Leaf, which emits 70% less carbon dioxide than the average car.
The Nissan Leaf took part in an Earth Day celebration in New York City this past week where six Leafs were introduced into the fleet of New York City taxis. Mayor Michael Bloomberg has a goal to have one third of NYC taxis be electric by 2020.
The Leaf taxis have a range of about 100 miles with the average taxi shift being 70 miles. The city will be installing quick-charging stations for drivers to charge the taxis during and between shifts. This is just the start to changing the way the taxi business operates.
