Environmental Footprint A 2014 study by the Automotive Science Group found the Nissan Leaf has the "smallest life-cycle environmental footprint of any (same year) automobile available in the North American market. "The study concluded that the increased environmental impacts of manufacturing the battery electric technology is more than offset with increased environmental performance during operational life."
The Nissan Leaf features a battery safety system that mechanically disconnects the high voltage from the vehicle in the event of a crash that deploys the air bags.
This model features not only the standard connector for Level 1 & Level 2 (120/220 volts AC) charging, but also adds the JARI high-voltage connector for DC fast charging (500 volts DC 125 amps). It also adds a small solar panel at the rear roof spoiler to trickle charge the auxiliary battery.
The LEAF spent its life in Alabama until April of 2016 when it came to Buffalo. We at Buffalo Motor Works scrutinize each vehicle prior to acquisition, provide a thorough assessment and reconditioning where needed, put each vehicle through a lengthy test drive, and have each vehicle state inspected prior to sale. We only deal in clean title vehicles. We strongly encourage you to check our Google reviews. Our mission statement is to provide only energy efficient pre-owned vehicles: the technology is available, lets all do our part for a more environmentally sustainable future!
