Nissan Leaf is coming to Seattle and Bellevue this week!
It's been coming for months and now it's here in the region. The Nissan LEAF is the new zero-emission, 100% electric vehicle which is part of the $100 million in DOE funding this area received in October to build charging stations around the Puget Sound area. As significant as the Leaf itself, is eTec, the company rolling out the electric vehicle charging stations in the Pacific Northwest.
Of special interest, a promised look at the nearly final battery and performance characteristics of the electric vehicle drive train. Here's what appears to be pretty good review and photos of the vehicle from autoblog.com
There is a public event this week as well - Thursday Dec 10 at Bellevue Square from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
