Nissan has started its second round of test drive touring this month for the all-electric Leaf, beginning in Long Island, New York and traveling through twenty six other cities over the next six months.
At the moment, the Leaf, which was released late last year, is only available in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Texas, Oregon, and Tennessee, where the company has a production facility.
The automaker is also celebrating the 4,000th sale of its Leaf vehicle, which doesn’t seem like much of a success, however, the car’s specifications, combined with Nissan’s potential market reach, have positioned the electric vehicle to be one of, if not, the best zero emission vehicles available.
While Tesla Motors certainly has more impressive electric cars, the price range may be an issue for some consumers, and although Mitsubishi’s i-MiEV has gained some ground, the model entered the marketplace a bit later. But, while the Leaf might be leading the pack in terms of 100% electric cars, plug-in hybrids like the Chevy Volt and Toyota Prius.
