The 2011 Nissan LEAF is forcing Nissan to clear some space in its trophy case. That’s because the ingenious little electric car has earned yet another award, this time capturing the 2011 Eco-Friendly Car of the Year Award from Cars.com. Marlboro Nissan is, as always, proud to provide the latest news on the Nissan LEAF to Boston automotive shoppers.
This victory comes after the LEAF received a Ward’s Auto “10 Best Engines” nod, a Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award and a 2011 European Car of the Year Award.
“Nissan is simply ahead of the game,” said Cars.com, which cited the LEAF’s straightforward design and innovative technology as factors in the award win.
Nissan LEAF Boston
Without so much as a drop of gas, the Nissan LEAF has captured the imagination of the automotive world. One of the main reasons why lies at the heart of the Nissan LEAF: its high-response 80kW AC synchronous motor powered by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery.
This system provides driving excitement one would expect of traditional, gasoline-powered vehicles, but without any of the harmful emissions those cars and trucks produce.
The 2011 Nissan LEAF has already arrived in selected markets and will be available across the country in 2012. When the LEAF makes its way to Boston, be sure that Marlboro Nissan will be one of the best places for drivers to purchase one of their own.
