2011 Nissan Leaf: Our Experts Talk Electric Cars

May 25th, 2010

If you’re curious about the 2011 Nissan Leaf – everything from ordering and owning one, to see how it stacks up against the 2011 Chevrolet Volt – you’re in luck.

High Gear Media’s vast network of writers has four reporters who have driven the 2011 Leaf, at almost every stage of the EV game. Last week, two of us took the Leaf for test drives near-production form – in San Jose at Plug-In 2010 and in the United Kingdom as part of the preparation of the Leaf in September starting in marketing .

With all this information at our fingertips, we have a Skype channel connected with our team for this car talking about the magazine. We bring you some of the essence of the new EV? Nikki’s AllCarsElectric Gordon-Bloomfield, Green Square ports John Feel Attacker, Bengt Halvorson TheCarConnection senior editor and editorial director Marty Padgett HGM.

Here is how we roll:

Padgett: Today, High Gear Media is talking about the 2011 Nissan Leaf. Our car talk includes all our staff around the world that I Leaf driven in different forms – I’m Marty Padgett, and I’m joined by Nikki Gordon Bloomfield from the United Kingdom, John Feel Attacker in New York and Bengt Halvorson in Portland.

Padgett: Hello, HGM family – first question goes to John. Fresh from NPR’s all things considered, and our in-house expert Volt.

Padgett: John, what is the technical aspect of the magazine the most difficult to explain to your mother?

Voelcker: Actually, the magazine easier to explain than the Volt, LOL. I just tell her the real batteries and an electric motor, and that’s how it goes. Gasoline engine to complicate things.

Padgett: I guess some people will be confused by the different possible charge. Nikki – your test drive in the UK, Nissan is able to fast cars to load up on the 440-volt capacity?

Gordon-Bloomfield: The guys at the Nissan European test center were able to quickly load the Leaf in 30 minutes at 80% SOC. So yes, they were!

Gordon-Bloomfield: It’s a Chadamo charger.

Gordon-Bloomfield: We do not know if it will be rolled out publicly, however.
