2011 Nissan Leaf Electric Car

The 2011 Nissan Leaf or “LEAF” as an acronym for Leading, Environmentally friendly, Affordable, Family car is an electric car packed full of batteries.  The LEAF is a compact five-door hatchback produced by Nissan.  The LEAF also falls into several car classes, Zero-emissions Vehicle (ZEV) and Compact battery electric car (BEV).  Although I would call the battery “compact”! The details on the body structure are still fairly tight lipped.  Rest assured, I’m searching high and low and will post that info as soon as I get it. 

In the mean time, look at the size of the batteries!  The battery pack is basically the entire floor of the car!  The battery packs used during prototypes and testing cost Nissan $18 a piece.  However, the production battery pack is going to much cheaper and cost effective at $9k!
