This week 100.5 The Peak's James Sutton gets all charged up about the 100% electric zero emission 2012 Nissan Leaf from Regency Infiniti Nissan. Look Ma - no tail pipe!! The Leaf's high-response 80 kW (110 hp) AC synchronous electric motor gives it a range of 160 km per charge. Its top speed is 145 km/h, but the distance travelled can increase at slower speeds. The four-door hatchback can accommodate five passengers. Models sold in Canada come with heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, heated outside mirrors and a battery warmer. The Leaf was named the 2011 World Car of the Year at the New York auto show and praised as the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its class for 2012 by Natural Resources Canada. It is also the first 100-per-cent electric vehicle to earn five stars from the US National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
