Ryan Reynolds teams up with Nissan to promote LEAF

Ryan Reynolds - Nissan LEAF

“Innovation for Endurance” is a program that is part of a five-year running partnership with Rodale, Inc., a leading fitness corporation that publishes several popular magazines. The companies publications will all feature information on the campaign.

Nissan’s new “Innovation for Endurance” program has just formed another partnership with Ryan Reynolds, star of upcoming films Green Lantern and The Change-Up, as its latest supporter. Reynolds is a good fit, considering his active lifestyle, and his appreciation for Nissan’s 100% electric car, the LEAF.

Reynolds says “I believe it’s possible to take great leaps forward without sacrificing a way of life. For me electric vehicles, like the Nissan Leaf, are not only representative of taking back the power, but also a significant statement about conscious ways of living,”

His work with the program will include Facebook videos, and work with top fitness industry professionals, including appearances and blog posts. He will also be contributing to digital and print media.

Refresher: Power for the Nissan LEAF comes from 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 90 mph. A full charge takes up to 8 hours 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. Prices for the 2011 Nissan LEAF will start at $32,780 but with a federal tax-credit prices will come in as low as $25,280, or for a lease payment of $349 a month.
