Nissan is a leader in electrification for its vehicles with the first mass-produced model in the Nissan LEAF. The automaker wants to continue to move in this direction with more new models being added to its lineup.
EV models from Nissan use electricity stored in high-voltage rechargeable batteries to power the motor and make the vehicle go. The energy gets converted into power, so it can move the wheels.
You can plug in the Nissan EV at home on a regular outlet or an installed charger for overnight charging. You can also use a public charging station to recharge faster. Regenerative braking takes wasted energy and stores it in the battery to keep it running longer without needing to be recharged.
The Nissan LEAF is the manufacturer’s signature EV model. This sedan is both practical and fun to drive with a sporty attitude and ample space for cargo and passengers. You can keep cruising by gas stations as you travel.
A new model is coming in the Fall of 2022 with the ARIYA, which is an electric SUV. You can take on more challenges of the road with e-4ORCE all-wheel drive. Choose from multiple trims to fit your driving needs and preferences. If you enjoy the premium comforts when you travel, you’ll appreciate the ARIYA Platinum+ with Nappa leather seats. This model boasts some practical amenities as well, such as the hands-free power liftgate. Select the ARIYA Venture+ when you want to travel further. This model comes with a range of up to 304 miles.
Many people choose to buy an electric vehicle because it saves on gas. They may want to do their part to take care of the environment with an eco-friendly vehicle. With the newest EV models, you don’t have to sacrifice performance for efficiency. Electric vehicles provide 100 percent torque from the start with no delays or lag time.
Another feature that makes EV models appealing is how quiet they are. There’s no engine to create noise, so you can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
EV models require less maintenance. You don’t have any engine components to deal with, such as oil changes and replacing spark plugs. You don’t have to worry about overheating or replacing coolant hoses and parts. Even brakes last longer on EV models because the motor helps with stopping. You can also be proud of the fact that there are no emissions with your EV model.
Nissan has taken their electric vehicles into the racing side of driving. They have entered the Formula E series to show that you can still enjoy speed with efficiency and a cleaner vehicle.
