Nissan Leaf Stories November 2

The full GOP House tax bill has been released and as expected earlier this morning, it does include the end of the federal tax credit for electric vehicles.

The official language indicates that the bill, in its current form, will end the $7500 subsidy entirely by the end of the year, which is sure to completely change the EV market in the US over the next few months. If you look at what happened to Denmark or even the US State of Georgia when tax incentives end, it isn’t a pretty picture for the EV market.

Here’s how we suggest approaching buying a new Tesla, Bolt EV, Hyundai Ioniq or any electric car really, with this new potential change. expand full story

Nissan Leaf Stories September 15

Like you, we have been waiting for months (some may say years!), to get a good view of the new Nissan Leaf 2018. Months ago we had some spy shots we could share with you. Later Nissan itself teased us with a few pictures but still no good look at this brand new electric vehicle until the launch event last week. Last night, when Seth and I went to the National Drive Electric event in Bridgewater, NJ, where a not-yet-road-legal 2018 Nissan Leaf was shown. We had the chance to take a good look at it, sit in it, fold the seats, pop the hood, turn on the lights, etc. but unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to actually drive the car.

We hope to do that soon. But until then check out the gallery below:

Nissan Leaf Stories September 6

Nissan launched its next-generation Leaf yesterday and it featured the biggest upgrade to the all-electric vehicle program since its launch back in 2011.

It looks like the new Leaf is well-positioned to grow the EV market and take away market share from gas-powered cars, but surprisingly, Nissan instead decided to call out other electric car makers, specifically Tesla. expand full story
