Two British drivers recently completed an EV trip from London to Edinburgh significantly faster and at a considerably lower cost than the same journey three years ago – demonstrating just how far EV technology has come.
 
At the end of January, EV enthusiasts Robert Llewellyn and David Peilow took just over 13 hours to drive their Nissan LEAF from Marble Arch in central London to Edinburgh castle in Scotland, a journey totalling 655km (407 miles). In 2011, the same trip took David 18 hours.

Hey! Want to see my Battery on Wheels?! by Matt Loader

Hey! Want to see my Battery on Wheels?! by Matt Loader
Renault-Nissan Alliance cocoa hut
Guess who I bumped into on the street in Davos the other day…..? Well, actually last week at the annual World Economic Forum my job was to bump into people on purpose, in order to explain the virtues of the LEAF-to-Home technology that allows us to harness the electricity in a Nissan LEAF battery - in this case, to heat cocoa drinks.

All smiles at the Alliance's hot cocoa hut in Davos, powered by LEAF-to-Home technology
Nissan’s Matt Loader discusses the LEAF-to-Home system with Dr. Nariman Behravesh, chief economist of IHS, and his wife
Day two at Davos and it’s more smiles at the cocoa hut, powered by Nissan’s LEAF-to-home technology, where Nissan Europe’s Matt Loader has been explaining to the crowds how it all works. And, actually, it wasn’t just down to the hot cocoa that they stayed to chat.
 
“I’ve been thinking about an electric car; it sounds like a good idea,” said David Williams, who is in Davos with his wife Carol Dudley-Williams, an executive vice president of The Dow Chemical Company headquartered in Michigan, the US. “The technology is interesting to me.”

Why Nissan LEAF is giving Davos visitors a warm glow

Why Nissan LEAF is giving Davos visitors a warm glow
What could be better than a cup of hot chocolate as the temperatures drop close to freezing… especially when it’s free? How about a free cup of hot chocolate made without needing to draw power from the grid at peak times?
 
That’s just what’s happening at the 2014 World Economic Forum in Davos this week, as Nissan displays its unique LEAF-to-Home technology. Instead of plugging the hot chocolate maker into the mains, it is powered by an all-electric Nissan LEAF using the energy stored in the car’s batteries.

A temple priest reflects on his Nissan LEAF
Three years ago, Anyo-in Temple’s Chief Priest Wasei Hirai was one of the first people to take home a Nissan LEAF electric car, and this month he sat down with Nissan’s Global Media Center to reflect on EV ownership as global LEAF sales reach 100,000, with a new customer halfway across the world in the UK.
 
Hirai, who has driven his LEAF 12,000 kilometers, says the car fits perfectly with his ancient temple’s philosophy of innovation and its messages about the environment and way of life.

Local sourcing of materials for Nissan LEAF brings costs down

Local sourcing of materials for Nissan LEAF brings costs down

Nissan is finding more and more ways to localize its LEAF production in the U.S. When the vehicle first became available in December 2010, the car was manufactured in Japan. In January 2013, Nissan ramped up production of the car in Smyrna, Tenn. This was followed by production of the electric motor in Decherd, Tenn., in April.

“Bringing that production here and those jobs here, it is better for everyone,” said Coral Kanies, Nissan Decherd Production Manager.
