Since Nissan’s electric compact hatchback car the L.E.A.F. (Leading, Environmentally friendly, Affordable, Family car) was announced least year, environmentally conscious people from around the world have been waiting for this car to hit full production (there have been L.E.A.F.s produced in certain markets this year).
With the Leaf expecting to hit full production by the 1st quarter of 2011, the anticipation is growing. While there are still questions about how viable it is to own an EV in today’s market (prices/maintenance costs for 1st adopters are always higher). It seems that EV’s are destined to make a mark in the automotive market sooner than later.
Nissan releases a cool detailed video of the manufacturing process of the highly anticipated car.
