In case you missed it – Nissan unveiled its new electric-car over the weekend – the 2010 Nissan LEAF EV. The five-seater hatchback is powered by a 107-hp electric-motor that runs on power supplied by lithium ion cells. On a full-charge, the Nissan LEAF allows for a driving range of 100 miles with a top speed of 87 mph.
The 2010 Nissan LEAF EV takes up to 8 hours to charge on a standard 200V outlet. Buyers can opt for the DC 50kW quick-charger, which recharges the battery up to 80 percent in under 30 minutes.
The model is scheduled to be launched in late 2010 in the U.S. with prices starting around $30,000.
With all that in mind – we’re wondering what you think of the new Nissan Leaf and whether or not you would purchase such a car over the Toyota Prius, Honda Insight or the upcoming 2011 Chevrolet Volt.
