Nissan LEAF named one of Kelley Blue Book’s 2017 “5 Best Electric Cars Under $40,000”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The 2017 Nissan LEAF has been named one of the “5 Best Electric Cars Under $40,000” by the editors of Kelley Blue Book. “Keep in mind all of these vehicles are eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit – in addition to potential state and local incentives – bringing the net price for each of them to below $30,000,” states the introduction to the special EV section.

In selecting the Nissan LEAF, the Kelley Blue Book evaluation team wrote: “Dating all the way back to the dawn of this decade, the groundbreaking and ever-evolving LEAF has received several upgrades and enhancements over the years.”

The editors also credit LEAF for bringing affordable electric vehicles to a wide consumer audience, writing:When the Nissan LEAF debuted in 2011, it brought electric vehicles to the masses. Easy to drive, whisper-quiet, respectable cargo capacity thanks to its hatchback design and refueling that’s as easy as plugging in a power cord, the LEAF has moved nearly a quarter-million units worldwide, making it the best-selling EV yet.”

“The Nissan LEAF continues to show its strength as the most popular electric vehicle in the world – with sales exceeding 100,000 in the United States alone,” said Dan Mohnke, vice president, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations. “Nissan is also played a leading role in growing the number of DC fast-charging stations in the U.S., with more than 2,100 CHAdeMO connections to date, which helps all EV drivers regardless of make or model.”

Nissan and EVgo recently revealed a plan to connect Boston and Washington D.C. via nine electric-vehicle DC fast-charge sites. The plan will deliver a robust charging infrastructure along I-95, providing EV owners peace of mind when driving along the route. The Northeast charging route is slated to be on-line this fall. The charging sites have been designed with future advances in EV technologies in mind, and have been pre-wired for a high-power charging power output of up to 150kW with simple upgrades once such technology is available to consumers.

Along with the 100-mile plus range, the 2017 LEAF features a standard 30 kWh battery that can be quick-charged to 80 percent (from the low battery charge warning) in about 30 minutes. Charging on a home charging system (Level 2, 240V) is estimated to take about six hours with the 6.6 kW onboard charger. All 2017 LEAF models include multiple drive modes: Normal, Eco and B-Mode, which engages regenerative braking more aggressively while decelerating.

LEAF’s lithium-ion battery pack carries warranty coverage of eight years or 100,000 miles against defects, plus the industry-leading coverage for 8 years/100,000 miles (30 kWh) against excessive capacity loss. LEAF is assembled in Smyrna, Tenn., including battery production.

Nissan Armada named one of Autotrader’s “2017 Must Test Drive Award” winners

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan today announced the all-new 2017 Armada full-size SUV has been selected as one of Autotrader’s “2017 Must Test Drive Award” winners. Chosen by a panel of Autotrader editorial staff, the consumer-focused award program is “designed to highlight the top 12 vehicles car shoppers must see and experience to believe… ones that can change the way a consumer perceives the model – or even the entire brand.”

In choosing Armada from a field of more than 300 current or next model-year models, the Autotrader staff wrote: “The redesigned Armada surprised Autotrader editors by just how well it drives and how nimbly it handles for being such a large vehicle, and combined with its high-quality interior materials, features and off-road abilities, the Armada ‘squarely competes with the best’ in the class.”

The all-new 2017 Armada is built on the heritage of the Nissan Patrol, which has been a workhorse for the world for many decades. While it is intended primarily for family adventures here in North America, Armada remains true to its roots as a strong, durable and authentic full-size, 8-passenger SUV.

“Featuring best-in-class1 maximum horsepower, a range of class-exclusive2 available safety and security features and a starting MSRP3 of $44,900, we are certainly in agreement with Autotrader that Armada is a must to drive and experience,” said Dan Mohnke, vice president, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations. “Armada has played an important part in Nissan’s position as the fastest growing brand in America in 2016. And already in 2017, Armada sales are up nearly 125 percent.”

Key distinctions between the 2017 Armada and the previous generation include a fresh exterior design, enhanced performance from a new 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 with best-in-class1 390-horsepower and a new 7-speed automatic transmission, a comfortable full-feature cabin and class-exclusive1 available safety and security features – including Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW)3, Blind Spot Intervention (BSI)4, Backup Collision Intervention (BCI)5 and Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD)6.

The Armada also offers an exceptional array of standard features, including Nissan Navigation with NavTraffic and NavWeather information (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately) and 8.0-inch color display, heated front seats and 13-speaker Bose® audio system.

As part of its adventure-ready spirit, the new Armada offers standard towing capacity of 8,500 pounds for both 4WD and 2WD models (when properly equipped). The durable independent double-wishbone front and rear suspension provides smooth ride comfort and responsive handling for both on-road and off-road driving.

The new Armada also continues the nameplate’s reputation for value and choice, offering a range of three high-content grade levels – SV, SL and Platinum – in both 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive configurations. It is on sale now at Nissan dealerships nationwide.
