Nissan LEAF Rally Car-1

A bunch of electric car enthusiasts who call their outfit Plug In Adventures have decided to enter Mongol Rally 2017 in a specially-prepared Nissan LEAF AT-EV (All Terrain Electric Vehicle). This Nissan LEAF Rally Car is supposed to drive 10,000 miles / 16,000 km from the UK to Mongolia in summer 2017.

That seems like an awfully long way and a painful trip in a car that runs out of juice every 100 miles or so and then takes hours to recharge. You would think they have fitted the Nissan LEAF Rally Car with some special batteries or super fast charging at least. But you’d be wrong. They have kitted-out the car for rough terrain, but the powertrain is a standard 30kWh unit.

As for the rally mods the AT-EV benefits from, the list includes Speedline SL2 Marmora wheels and Maxsport RB3 narrow tyres, welded plates to the underside of the wishbones, braided brake lines, mudflaps and a 6mm aluminium sump guard, modified roof rack with a Lazer Triple-R 16 LED light bar to produce 16,400 lumens of supplementary low-voltage forward lighting, rubber floor mats and rear seats delete.

Chris Ramsey, founder of Plug In Adventures, said: “The Mongol Rally is our most challenging electric vehicle drive to date, but it’s one we’ve been planning for a number of years. Not only will we face a dwindling number of EV chargers the further east we go, the terrain also becomes more difficult to navigate.

PostHeaderIcon What is Going on with the Nissan Leaf?

When it comes to electric cars, the biggest turn off is the low range associated with most models. The Nissan Leaf, for instance, comes standard with a 24 kWh battery pack that offers just 84 miles of range between charges. Of course, there’s the Leaf SV that comes with a 30 kWh battery and a total range of about 107 miles, but to get that model (and the extra 23 miles of range that comes with it,) you have to shell out an extra $5,190. All of that is about to change, however, as a new order guide has revealed that the 24 kWh version of the Leaf will no longer be offered. But, that doesn’t mean you’ll have to shell out $34,200 to get into a new leaf.

Instead of dropping the entry-level Leaf altogether, Nissan got the bright idea to ax the 24 kWh battery and replace it with a 30 kWh battery. But to go along with that, the price for the entry-level Leaf S is also being increased by $3,440 to a total of $32,450. That makes the entry-level model just $1,750 cheaper than the mid-range Leaf SV. The Quick Charge Package is also now included as a standard feature, which surely helps Nissan feel justified in that massive price hike.

In fairness, the Leaf has performed quite well in comparison to other electric models in the first half of 2016. According to Fleet Carma, 5793 examples of the Leaf were sold through June 30, 2016, only being outsold by the Tesla Model S, Chevy Volt, Ford Fusion Energi PHEV, and the Tesla Model X. Competitors like the Fiat 500e, Volkswagen e-Golf, and Soul EV all failing to reach even half of the Leaf’s total sales through the end of June. Nissan did tell Green Car Reports that if a customer still wishes to purchase a Leaf S with a 24-kWh battery, he or she can visit the Nissan USA website or their local dealer to locate a 24-kWh model.


PostHeaderIcon Nissan Partners With Microsoft To Power New Connectivity Platform

Nissan and Microsoft are volting in and joining forces after the Japanese automaker announced that all Nissan LEAF models and Infiniti models in Europe would be be fitted with the company’s new Connect Telematics Systems connectivity platform. More importantly, these platforms will be powered by Microsoft Azure, a program that provides a global cloud platform that will allow car owners to have a remote connection to their vehicles, even when they’re not inside their respective cars.

Like most connectivity platforms that have been introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show, Nissan’s Azure-powered CTS platform will open up a world of new mobility and technological solutions for owners of the Nissan LEAF and Infiniti models across the pond. Among the notable features of the CTS is the ability to use mobile phones as substitute remote controls that will be capable of adjusting in-car controls from a distance.

A Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant will also be introduced as a standard feature for all Nissan LEAFs around the world. Imagine the convenience of not having to read through and reply to text messages by hand. This feature cuts out that tedious and often dangerous practice, replacing it with a system that can read the text out loud to the driver and allow the driver respond by voice or through pre-set responses that can be accessed via switches on the steering wheel. Instead of having to write down “on my way” in response to a text, a driver can just say it out loud or press a button on the wheel to send the same message.

Nissan’s promise to deliver a more innovative and intelligent future for its connected technologies took a big step with its partnership with one of the biggest tech companies in the world. With this collaboration with Microsoft in place, Nissan is definitely on its way to making good on all of its promises.

Around since late 2010, the Nissan Leaf has yet to receive an overhaul, but while a second-generation model might still be a few years away, the Japanese did launch an update for the 2016 model year. Those of you waiting for a visual facelift will be disappointed, though, as the body carries over unchanged. On the other hand, there are plenty of upgrades to talk about in the drivetrain department, as well as a mildly updated interior.

With 180,000 units sold globally as of June 2015, the Nissan Leaf is the world’s all-time, best-selling, highway-capable electric car, a distinction it’s likely to retain following this update. The 2014 Nissan Leaf topped the EV/hybrid segment in the U.S. too, delivering 30,200 examples in 2014, a massive 33 percent increase over 2013 and the first time an electric car has sold 30K units. By comparison, its closest competitors (in terms of sales, of course), the 2014 Chevrolet Volt and 2315 Tesla Model S, sold only 18,805 and 17,410 units, respectively.

Will Leaf sales continue to grow now that the hatchback can be had with an upgraded drivetrain? It remains to be seen really, but with a range that now surpasses the 100-mile mark, the Leaf is likely to get a lot of attention. Keep reading for the full details.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan Leaf Receives IHS Awards; Scores Record Sales in 2014

When it comes to all-electric cars, the Tesla Model S is arguably the benchmark in today’s automotive industry. However, the all-American sedan is far from being affordable, with its $65,570 sticker making it as expensive as an Audi A7. As you may know, Tesla is already working on a smaller, more affordable vehicle, but until the Model III arrives, drivers who want to go green can take it to Nissan for a more financially viable option: the Leaf. The Leaf is a compact, five-door hatchback with decent performance and mileage.

It might not be as quick as the Model S with only 107 ponies and 187 pound-feet of torque at its disposal, and a full charge will only take it 75 miles, but the Leaf is the perfect alternative for short-distance travel. And with 30,200 units delivered in 2014 across the U.S., which accounts for the best-ever annual sales figure for any plug-in EV, customers seem to agree with that statement.

Besides posting a record-breaking sales year, the Leaf was also named the best Non-Luxury Traditional Compact Car in the annual IHS Automotive Loyalty Awards, which demonstrates the nameplate’s popularity among EV enthusiasts. It’s important to note that the Leaf is also the only plug-in vehicle to be included in the IHS Awards. That’s solid proof that the market needs affordable, reliable EVs more than it requires supercar-like performance and luxury.
