The Nissan Leaf is an all-electric car, brand new for 2011: the first fully electric zero-emissions car to be made available for general sale (as opposed to lease) in the United States. It's a 5-seater, with four side doors and a hatchback, and has an estimated range of 100 miles between charges, according to Nissan.

The entry-level "SV" trim of the 2011 Nissan Leaf features 16-inch alloy wheels, cloth upholstery made of recycled materials, LED headlights, keyless entry and ignition, power accessories, cruise control, automatic climate control, trip computer, navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 6-speaker sound system. The Leaf SL trim includes a spoiler-mounted solar panel, parking assist, and a cargo cover, and steps up to automatic headlights. The home charging station is optional; so is a quick-charge port that expedites the charging process at a commercial charging station. Behind the rear seats, the cargo capacity comes to 14.5 cubic feet; with rear seats folded, this can be increased to 24 cubic feet, the manufacturer says.

The 2011 Nissan Juke's power plant consists of an 80-kw electric motor that produces 107 horsepower and 207 lb.-ft. of torque. According to the EPA, the Nissan Leaf's energy efficiency is roughly equivalent to that of a gasoline engine that delivered 106 mpg in the city and 92 mpg on the highway. The motor is fed by a 24-kWh lithium-ion battery that can charge in the garage in 4-8 hours using a 220-volt charger, or in approximately 30 minutes in a charging station.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Nissan Leaf include anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, traction control, adjustable front and rear head restraints, front side air bags, side curtain air bags, and a security system. The Leaf SL trim offers an optional rearview camera.
