PRLog - Dec. 18, 2012 - OAK LAWN, Ill. -- As one of the world’s first commercially available completely electric vehicles, the 2012 Nissan Leaf has taken the next step towards a cleaner future. By eliminating the need for fossil fuels, the 2012 Leaf allows shoppers to not only help clean up the environment but save some serious cash in the process.
As a leading Chicago Nissan dealer, Kelly Nissan is thrilled to offer the fully electric 2012 Nissan Leaf on its showroom floor. As a milestone in green-conscious automotive engineering, the 2012 Leaf’s unique design has no need for a tailpipe due to its pollution free engine system. Kelly Nissan is excited to be able to offer Chicago Nissan shoppers the opportunity to test drive this revolutionary new vehicle in the coming months.
Fans of green technology will be thoroughly impressed with everything the 2012 Leaf has to offer, including a powerful but fully electric zero emissions engine. Other innovative features, such as an onboard CARWINGS driver’s assistance service, come standard with every 2012 Nissan Leaf.
The main feature that Nissan has focused on with the new Leaf model is its fully electric and environmentally friendly engine system. The 2012 Leaf utilizes a fully rechargeable 24 kWh lithium-ion battery to power its 80 kW AC synchronous motor. This revolutionary engine allows the Leaf to reach a top speed of approximately 90 mph. Nissan fans will be pleased to learn that on a fully charged battery, the 2012 Leaf will be able to travel up to 100 miles before having to be recharged, depending on speed and road conditions.
The 2012 Leaf will be able to be recharged in two unique ways. Chicago Nissan drivers can bring their 2012 Leaf to designated recharging stations, soon to be located throughout the country, or from a standard 110/120V outlet if stuck in an emergency situation.
Going Green Has Never Looked This Good
In addition to its engine, the 2012 Leaf’s futuristic features and design are sure to drop Chicago Nissan driver’s jaws. A sleek, aerodynamically shaped exterior ensures drivers get the most out of every battery charge, and the comfortable interior comes chock full of features that make driving the 2012 Leaf a true pleasure.
Every 2012 Nissan Leaf comes standard with the onboard driver assistance service CARWINGS. This service will keep drivers up to date with important information regarding their 2012 Leaf, including current battery life and where the closest recharging station can be located. CARWINGS can also be used to control the interior temperature and can sync with your smart phone through a wireless Bluetooth connection in order to make or receive calls or play customized music playlists through the audio system.
Other features offered with every 2012 Nissan Leaf include a keyless entry and push-button ignition system, steering wheel-mounted cruise control and audio controls, rear seat heater duct, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a pre-installed navigation system.
The 2012 Leaf’s factory audio system will also impress. Each system comes with AM/FM/CD/MP3 capabilities along with an XM radio receiver. The stereo system also comes with a USB input jack, allowing Nissan drivers to plug their iPod or any other USB compatible MP3 player directly into the system, which includes 6 high quality speakers.
