2011 World Car of the Year Arrives In Peoria
The all-electric Nissan Leaf has arrived in Peoria - it's the very first 100% electric car available for Central Illinois car shoppers.
All-electric means zero emissions - something fans of the environment, those who like to breathe clean air, and people who don't want to pay high gas prices will appreciate. The Leaf simply plugs in at home for 100 miles of pure electric driving. Owners can charge overnight from the convenience of their homes, or if they need a quick fill-up, at one of Uftring Nissan's quick charge stations.
Many central Illinois auto shoppers have enjoyed the opportunity to test drive the Nissan Leaf since a demo version arrived at Uftring Nissan in September. Drivers have taken to the Leaf's quick acceleration, nimble handling, and technology laden cabin. Interior amenities and options are on par with that of a luxury vehicle. The substitution of an electric motor for an internal combustion engine makes the Leaf virtually silent as it scoots about town.
Catch a glimpse into the future of the auto industry by visiting Uftring Nissan today. For more information watch the Nissan Leaf Walk Around video at www.youtube.com/
