Nissan Leaf NYC interest is growing at an exponential rate about Nissan’s brand new, entirely electric vehicle and Nemet Motors will have the actual vehicle in its showroom this month.
QUEENS, N.Y. – Nissan Leaf NYC inquisitiveness is spreading quickly about Nissan’s electric vehicle hitting the market this year, and Nemet Motors Nissan dealership has announced that Nissan Leaf NYC seekers can view the car in person in its showroom this month and test drive the vehicle at Nemet Motors this August, a full two years before mass-production of the vehicle is set to begin.
Nissan estimates 20,000 pre-orders will be made for the Leaf, and thanks to Nemet Motors, Nissan Leaf NYC buyers will also have a chance to pre-order the zero emissions vehicle at the dealership. According to Nissan USA’s website, the vehicle will become available for purchase or lease at Nissan dealers in select markets in December and nationwide in 2011.
Nemet Motors General Manager Scott Perlstein said, “The need for fuel-efficient vehicles has never been stronger in this economy and in this age of responsible environmental stewardship. To have the opportunity to showcase and allow people to pre-order a vehicle that uses absolutely no fuel whatsoever, a true zero-emissions car that is functional, practical, accelerates like a V6 and has an appealing design, has been so exciting and rewarding for Nemet Motors.”
The Nissan Leaf NYC display at Nemet Motors comes after Nissan’s three-month multi-city tour, which consisted of 63 stops in 24 cities ending in February. The tour gave the public, media, businesses and university students a chance to learn more about the Nissan Leaf and all it has to offer which includes:
• No tailpipe = zero emissions
• 100 percent torque available at 0 RPM
• 100 miles per charge under average, everyday driving conditions
• The Leaf handles and accelerates like a V6 car and has a top speed of up to 90mph
• Seats five comfortably
• Battery lifespan of 5-10 years
• Starting from a depleted battery, charging time is 8 hours at 220V (depending on amperage), 26 minutes to 80 percent at a quick-charge station, and 16-18 hours at 110V
Nissan Leaf NYC drivers familiar with thick traffic will appreciate the Leaf’s “idle” quality which means no power is drained from the battery while sitting in traffic, as long as no lights, stereo or other accessories are in use. Also, braking is regenerative, which means pressing the brake pedal helps maintain battery charge and optimizes driving range, ideal for stop-and-go conditions.
Stephen Colwell, a customer of Nemet Motors and Queens resident said, “There are so many things to like about the Nissan Leaf. With the state of the environment, the pollution levels in NYC, and the cost of fuel prices always in fluctuation, it’s about time this vehicle came to be.
“Plus, there are little headaches eliminated when it comes to the Leaf; imagine never having to perform an oil change ever again? I can’t wait to actually sit in this car at Nemet Motors’ showroom and test it out for myself because I know the sales team there is excellent, and they’ll know all the ins and outs and other details of the vehicle before I get there,” Mr. Colwell added.
