PRLog - Jan. 18, 2011 - DARIEN, Conn. -- Since December this innovative electric car has slowly been making its way around the United States. The all-new Leaf was first delivered out west to California, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington. As it’s made its way east, excitement has been building. The first shipment arrived in Nashville at the Action Nissan dealership. Jeff Heeren was the lucky customer to receive his Leaf first. He happily drove home in his new silver Leaf SL.
Darien Nissan Applauds The All New Leaf
The arrival of the all-new Nissan Leaf in Tennessee is particularly exciting because back in 2008 Nissan announced that it was partnering with the State and with the Tennessee Valley Authority to assist in the recommendations of electric vehicle friendly policies and in the development an of EV charging infrastructure. Later this year the TVA hopes to begin unveiling their new solar-assisted charging stations throughout the state to encourage the use of automobiles with alternate fuel sources.
“Electricity is the new fuel for cars, and the Nissan LEAF has the potential to transform the automotive industry and the way people drive,” said Carlos Tavares, chairman, Nissan Americas. “Starting today, drivers in Nashville have the freedom to choose a future that produces zero tailpipe emissions, moves away from our dependence on fossil fuels, and represents the end of trips to the gas station. This Nissan LEAF delivery signifies the dawn of a movement that brings sustainable mobility to within our grasp.”
The leading Darien Nissan dealership isn’t the only one to recognize how remarkable this vehicle is. The Nissan Leaf is already beginning to rack up awards and accolades. The Leaf was a finalist for the prestigious North American Car of the Year award, included on the WardsAuto.com’
It’s not really surprising though, the Nissan Leaf can drive up to a 100 miles with only 30mins of charging, can reach speeds of 90mph, and emits no harmful gases or pollutants into the air. The Leaf can also seat five, offers a sleek exterior, and is nicely priced, starting around $26,000.
While Nissan Darien is excited for the unveiling of the new Nissan Leaf, Connecticut auto shoppers are going to have to wait a bit longer. Hawaii and Texas are up next to receive the all-new Nissan Leaf.
