Nissan tests Indian waters for all-electric Leaf.
Japanese automobile major Nissan has a target of being the first global OEM
to launch a full electric vehicle in India. The government of India's FAME (or Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles) programme that kicks in this month has spurred the company to step up its activities aimed at bringing the zero emission Leaf to India.
The Leaf is a sporty side which is impressive. The 80kW motor’s 240 Nm of peak torque right from the start makes you understand why the response to the throttle pedal feels exciting. Globally, the Leaf is positioned as an urban hatchback. The car has a host of safety features that include ABS
, six airbags, vehicle dynamic control and traction control system. The car has a driving range of 135km with a fully charged battery. Nissan plans to increase the range to 400km. Nissan tests Indian waters for all-electric Leaf
