Glow-in-the-dark Nissan LEAF breaks Guinness World Records

LONDON - Nissan has broken the Guinness World Records title for the Largest Glow-in-the-Dark Painting by using the glow-in-the-dark Nissan LEAF to paint a 207.68m2 self-portrait of the 100-percent electric car. The painting, which depicts the front of a Nissan LEAF, was created by maverick motoring artist Ian Cook of Popbangcolour. Usually seen working with radio-controlled cars, Cook was quick to accept Nissan's challenge to work on this super-sized project, using the full-size Nissan LEAF to spread strategically placed pools of glow-in-the-dark paint across the canvas with its tires to create the image.

Nissan Cleans Up London with the World’s First Car-Powered Graffiti

LONDON – Nissan is highlighting London's battle with air quality in the UK by using the 100% electric Nissan LEAF – the world's best-selling electric vehicle (EV) – to power a striking piece of street art in Waterloo, London that depicts the capital's iconic skyline.

Nissan commissioned Reverse Graffiti artist Moose – the founder of his field – to create the mass-scale mural, which was unveiled today.

Unlike traditional graffiti, Moose creates his art by cleaning dirt off surfaces using a jet washer or wire brush, leaving a striking design in negative on the wall. Much of the dirt is caused by particulate matter from vehicle exhausts, levels of which often exceed guidelines and limits in busy areas of London and other European cities.

The artwork – which is on show in the subway on Station's Approach, Waterloo – includes a host of London's most famous landmarks: Buckingham Palace, The Shard, Battersea Power Station and The London Eye, to name just a few. Produced to highlight the growing issue of poor air quality across Europe's biggest cities, it aims to showcase how much cleaner they could be if more people adopted electric vehicles. The jet washer used to clean the wall was powered by the Nissan LEAF via a portable device that converts electricity from the car's battery to provide as much as two days of power to a household on a single charge.

Before the artwork made its way onto the wall, Moose sketched the skyline by hand and then created stencils that pieced together to produce the finished artwork, standing some 2.5 meters tall and 10 meters wide.

The campaign places Nissan at the center of leading the call for clean air and smarter cities around the world.

"I've been using reverse graffiti for fifteen years now – in fact I named it," said explained Moose, who originates from Leeds. "My whole ethos is about highlighting the amount of pollution we endure daily using a very positive harmless method that never fails to ask questions about what we accept and what we shouldn't accept in our environment. For these reasons I was keen to be involved in this project. Electric cars and alternative fuelling systems provide the brightest future we've ever known in the history of the automotive industry in terms of protecting our environment. It's a pleasure to be given the opportunity to create public art in this way, and I'm very pleased with the iconic simplicity of the mural and its message."

Moose's artwork is on show in London Waterloo, and Nissan is encouraging the public to come out and see it for themselves.

"This piece of art is a striking call to action that air quality is one of the biggest issues facing the citizens and visitors of Europe's largest cities today," said Jean-Pierre Diernaz, EV Director of Nissan Europe. "It is a reminder that electric vehicles don't have an exhaust to emit the kind of air pollution which has stained the wall Moose has created his piece on. Working with Moose to highlight the effect of air quality on our cities through a piece of art powered by the Nissan LEAF is an exciting and powerful way of reminding people about the benefits of zero emission vehicles."

Nissan Builds an Electric Pickup

Here’s Sparky, a converted Nissan Leaf. Engineers Roland Schellenberg and Arnold Moulinet, eager to do a little team-building and create a cool way of moving stuff around Nissan’s Stanfield, Arizona testing facility, led the project.  Some of you may be wondering, “Why not just get a Frontier and be done with it.” Well, what’s the fun in that? Besides—there is a long and awesome tradition of automakers doing crazy things like building a BMW M3 pickup and Porsche-powered Volkswagen Vanagon.

Now, the Leaf is a highly capable, thoroughly funky EV that we love. And it makes a surprisingly attractive, if somewhat stunted, pickup truck. The team kept the drivetrain as-is, chopped off the roof and added the top from a Titan pickup and the (shortened) bed from a Frontier. Cool details include wood bed slats, sharp wheels and the Leaf’s rounded rear. It all comes together in a thoroughly futuristic riff on the venerable pickup.

Sparky is tooling around the 3,050-acre test facility, which includes a 5.7-mile high-speed oval that the little electric p’up probably won’t ever see. We don’t expect to see a contractor rocking one of these anytime soon, but we wouldn’t rule out seeing something like this in the future. After all, Nissan’s already stuffed the GT-R’s drivetrain into the Juke, sent a Leaf clambering up Pikes Peak and built a race-ready Leaf that looks utterly insane. (We drove it. It was fun.) This is definitely a company that isn’t afraid to get a little weird.

Nissan LEAF roars into safari service in the UK

Nissan LEAF roars into safari service in the UK

 

LIVERPOOL, England: One of the United Kingdom's leading zoological attractions has tamed its fuel costs and moved further towards its sustainability objectives by adding a 100% electric Nissan LEAF to its fleet.

The award-winning model is being used by the Learning and Discovery Team at Knowsley Safari near Liverpool as they deliver a conservation and sustainability message to schools across England.

The team's two full-time educators clock up around 10,000 miles a year working predominantly with primary school children. The educators also often transport a variety of snakes, spiders and assorted creepy-crawlies.

Sponsored by local dealer Nissan Liverpool in Sefton Street and wearing Knowsley Safari's striking livery, the eye-catching model is charged using electricity from the attraction's own solar panels and is therefore entirely free to run.

A zero emissions vehicle, the Nissan LEAF is also making a sizeable contribution to the park's environmental and sustainability goals. The park already harnesses rainwater and operates a zero-to-landfill policy.

"In many ways the LEAF is the perfect car for us," said Richard Smith, head of visitor services at Knowsley Safari. "It's fantastic. Because we've been able to couple our charger to our solar panels, there are effectively no running costs and that's a real advantage. We also operate in accordance with a strict sustainability plan, and in that regard the LEAF is a winner too. It fits very neatly with the overall message the Learning and Discovery Team are delivering at schools across the region."

Nissan Liverpool General Sales Manager, Mike Thomas, said: "We're delighted to be able to support such a prestigious and fantastic attraction, and I'm delighted they're reaping the benefits of the Nissan LEAF. So many other businesses and individuals could be enjoying the environmental and economic benefits of the model as well, and I'd encourage them to take a test drive and see how easily it could meet their needs. Even when it's charged from a domestic socket rather than from solar panels, the LEAF costs just two pence per mile to run, and it's hard to argue with that."

Nissan becomes the first company to sell a 100% electric vehicle in Mexico

Nissan becomes the first company to sell a 100% electric vehicle in Mexico

MEXICO CITY (June 4, 2014) ñ Nissan today announced the launch of LEAF, the first 100 percent electric vehicle to be marketed in Mexico. The presale starts today and will continue until its arrival on June 30.

 

Nissan announced the launch of LEAF, the first 100 percent electric vehicle to be marketed in Mexico. The presale will continue until its arrival on June 30.

Nissan LEAF is the first zero-emissions vehicle marketed in Mexico, confirming the leadership and the promise of the Japanese company to transform traditional driving into a new silent experience.

"Nissan LEAF is a reality in the Mexican market," said Airton Cousseau, CEO of Nissan Mexicana. "We are proud to be the pioneer company to introduce the first zero-emissions vehicle leader in sales worldwide in Mexico. This release represents an honor for us and recognizes a milestone in the history of innovation in Nissan, a cornerstone of our business strategy."

In Mexico, the Nissan LEAF will be available in a unique version with Around View Monitor that allows a panoramic view around the car, "B Mode driving" that allows power renewal almost immediately after the throttle is removed, a fast-charging port that allows a recharge of 80 percent of the battery in just 30 minutes, leather seats, a 7-inch touch screen, and many other features.

"Many of the 115,000 LEAF users have expressed the thrill of driving an electric vehicle," said Alejandro Viveros, senior manager of the zero-emissions business unit. "Having a Nissan LEAF is a totally fun and satisfying experience that now Mexican customers can enjoy."

Initially, the Nissan LEAF in Mexico will be available for sale through Nissan's certified dealership network located in Mexico City.

In addition, Nissan and the Government of the State of Morelos have taken the initiative to create the first electric corridor in Latin America that will be located between Mexico City and Cuernavaca.

Mexico City soon will have a development plan to install charging zones in Colonia Roma, Colonia Del Valle, Coyoacan, Polanco, Santa Fe, Ciudad Satelite, Altavista and San Angel.

"The main goal of this infrastructure is to increase the offer of charging stations to increase the confidence and safety when driving an electric vehicle, with the benefit of a responsible social change," said Jorge Vallejo, director of external relations and government affairs for Nissan in Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean. "We understand the anxiety that driving an electric vehicle can cause without the proper infrastructure in each city, and the most important and positive fact is that every Nissan LEAF user has the chance to charge the vehicle at home."

Nissan presented the results of a study led by INAINE (Institute for Ecological Research Assistance, AC) in relation to the development of EV infrastructure in Mexico City. The study was possible thanks to a fund that METI (a Japanese government entity) awarded Nissan, and it confirmed the viability of infrastructure development for the marketing of EVs in Mexico City.

Nissan launches programs to make LEAF charging free in San Diego!

Nissan launches programs to make LEAF charging free in San Diego!

 

NEW YORK - Nissan announced the expansion of its successful "No Charge to Charge" promotion, which will provide two years of no-cost public charging with the purchase or lease of a new Nissan LEAF. In total, Nissan will launch "No Charge to Charge" in 25 U.S. markets, which are currently responsible for more than 80 percent of Nissan LEAF sales.

The "No Charge to Charge" expansion will use the new EZ-ChargeSM card, a first-of-its-kind platform that will offer Nissan LEAF owners access to the leading EV charging networks with a single, all-access card. New owners will receive an EZ-Charge card that will provide access to chargers with ChargePoint, Blink Network from Car Charging Group, AeroVironment and NRG eVgo.

"'No Charge to Charge' and EZ-Charge are a winning combination, making public charging free and easy for new LEAF buyers," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing, Aftersales. "Public charging is an important way to provide added range confidence to EV buyers and persuade more shoppers to join the more than 110,000 LEAF drivers around the world."

"No Charge to Charge" will launch using the EZ-Charge card on July 1, 2014, in 10 of the top markets for Nissan LEAF sales, including San Francisco, Sacramento, San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Ore., Nashville, Phoenix, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston and Washington, DC. The "No Charge to Charge" offer and EZ-Charge card will be provided retroactively to buyers in these markets who purchased their LEAF on or after April 1, 2014.

After the rollout in the first 10 markets, Nissan plans to add "No Charge to Charge" and EZ-Charge at LEAF dealers in at least 15 additional markets during the following year. More details on the programs in these additional markets will be made available closer to their launch.

The EZ-Charge access card is managed by NRG eVgo with support from ChargePoint, CarCharging and AeroVironment.

"Nissan's commitment to mass-market electric cars is matched by our commitment to increase charging infrastructure for LEAF owners," said Brendan Jones, director, Nissan EV Infrastructure and Strategy. "EZ-Charge is a natural progression of our multi-pronged commitment to developing EV charging at workplace campuses, at Nissan LEAF dealerships and in the communities where LEAF drivers live and work."

Taxi Electric is First to use Nissan’s e-NV2OO taxi in Amsterdam

Taxi Electric is First to use Nissan's

e-NV2OO taxi in Amsterdam

  • This summer Taxi Electric becomes the first taxi company in Amsterdam to adopt the zero-emission Nissan e-NV200
  • Taxi Electric first 100% Nissan LEAF fleet since November 2011

  • Pioneering Amsterdam-based company have covered 1.5 million km demonstrating Nissan EVs' quality and reliability

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - Taxi Electric will be the first private taxi company to add the new 100-percent electric Nissan e-NV200 taxi to its green-energy zero-emission fleet.

The combination of Nissan's innovative zero-emission technology, in the form of the 100-percent electric Nissan LEAF, and Taxi Electric's ground-breaking city transportation model have been a recipe for success since the start of operation in 2011. Now the two companies have teamed up again to build on this success and take the next step forward by introducing the game-changing all-electric Nissan e-NV200 taxi this summer.

Amsterdam-based Taxi Electric operates a fleet of 25 Nissan LEAF vehicles. It was the first private taxi service to switch to a fleet of 100% electric taxis in 2011. The Dutch company's fleet of Nissan LEAFs has now amassed a trouble-free 1.5 million km in taxi operations – proof of the electric vehicle's high quality and reliability.

Andy Palmer, EVP Nissan said: "Taxi Electric was one of the first electric taxi companies in the world, and I've been impressed with their progress since their launch two years ago. They were the first to prove that zero-emission taxis – in the form of Nissan LEAFs – are a viable alternative. They have covered an astonishing distance in their fleet in such a short time and have shown just how reliable our electric technology is in a demanding environment. Their pioneering spirit closely matches ours, and we are certain they will continue their success with the ground-breaking Nissan e-NV200."

Ruud Zandvliet, founder of Taxi Electric added: "Two years ago we started with 10 Nissan LEAFs. Each of these travelled well over 100,000 km and proved to be extremely reliable. Since last summer demand for our taxis is growing rapidly, which allowed us to double our fleet. We are very excited about the e-NV200 as it is designed to be a taxi. This will improve our offering and open new business opportunities for us."

Taxi Electric will not be alone in making the Nissan e-NV200 part of their taxi fleet, with the city of Barcelona having signed a memorandum of understanding with Nissan to promote it as a taxi for the Spanish region. Global production of the Nissan e-NV200 begins in May this year, with sales starting in the summer.
