Online PR News – 29-September-2011 – – Staunton Nissan is excited to announce the arrival of the first Nissan Leaf at the Charlottesville area Nissan dealership. The 2012 Nissan Leaf is an electric car that offers benefits to consumers and the environment.

Although the Leaf was just introduced last year, the 2012 model has already received minor upgrades. More features now come standard on the electric hatchback than were offered on its predecessor. The most notable new standard amenities include cold-weather features, such as a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats, heated exterior mirrors, and a battery heater. The SL model also now includes a standard quick-charge port.

Inside the electric car is a spacious cabin large enough to comfortably seat four adults. The Leaf also provides exceptional visibility, a quiet ride, and enough power to make any driver believe the car they are driving is running on gasoline. The Leaf’s EPA-rated range is 73 miles, and the battery can be charged in as little as 30 minutes at a quick-charge commercial station.

The Leaf offers many financial benefits to consumers as well. In addition to running on electricity and therefore eliminating the need for gasoline, Leaf owners also receive a $7,500 federal tax credit.
