Online PR News – 08-May-2013 – Enterprise, AL – Nissan has recently announced that they will be collaborating with Electronic Arts to introduce the all-electronic Nissan LEAF into the new SimCity video game. In the popular city-building strategy game, players are able to create electric vehicle-friendly cities and now place up to five Nissan-branded charging stations throughout the city free of charge. Mitchell Nissan of Enterprise, AL has all the latest details on the new collaboration.

The Nissan LEAF will be the only electric vehicle featured in the new SimCity game. In order to encourage players to install charging stations for the EVs, buildings in the city will experience a one-time wave of ‘happiness,’ one of the game’s key rewards. LEAF vehicles will begin appearing in the city once the stations have been installed, allowing players to see ‘EV smiles’ on their Sims face as they drive their all-electric LEAF around town. In order to see how LEAF ‘happiness’ translates to real life savings, an online calculator is featured on Nissan’s website.

“Even virtual cities recognize that electric vehicles are the future of a sustainable mobile society, and Nissan is excited to start helping SimCity players make their cities more environmentally friendly by adding its zero-emission Nissan LEAF to the game,” explains vice president of marketing at Nissan North American, Inc., Jon Brancheau. “Nissan remains committed to finding innovative ways to promote the development of EV infrastructure and to bring practical, affordable, electric vehicles to markets throughout the United States.”

The 100% electric Nissan LEAF is powered by an 80-kilowatt electric motor fed by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack to deliver 10 horsepower and 207 lb-ft. of torque. The advanced lithium-ion battery can be easily charged at home or on-the-go, releasing zero CO2 emissions in order to provide the ultimate green ride.
