Q: Does the "engine compartment" just contain the smaller electric motor or is there the potential for more trunk space?
A: The electric motor and inverter only fill the front compartment due to their size and layout, therefore, we've maximized interior and cargo space in the rest of the vehicle.

Q: How long will the battery remain charged if you leave it parked where you cannot charge it?
A: This depends on a variety of factors like ambient temperature, age of the battery and how much energy is in the battery when you park it. However, the drain is very small relative to the battery's capacity.

Q: Is the Nissan LEAF? going to have the Zero Emission logo on it?
A: The Zero Emission badge is located on the back of every Nissan LEAF vehicle. In addition, you have the option to purchase a zero emissions body graphic as an accessory on your vehicle.

Q: Since the battery is in the front, is there something protecting it in case of a collision?
A: The battery is actually located under the seats and is fully integrated into the body structure. It has been tested for impact safety and meets or exceeds all regulatory standards - the same as any Nissan. The Nissan LEAF? has also earned a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as well as a 5-star overall vehicle rating for safety as part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).

Q: In case of a problem, can a qualified mechanic fix a Nissan LEAF?? Is special training needed?
A: The Nissan LEAF? has an electric motor and no gasoline engine, so it will require service at your local LEAF? certified Nissan dealership by a qualified, trained EV technician.

Q: Will my golf clubs fit in the trunk?
A: Yes, the Nissan LEAF? is a family car with ample passenger and cargo space.

Q: Does it sound like driving an electric golf cart? I would imagine it would be virtually silent?
A: The driving experience is exceptionally quiet, but Nissan LEAF? is definitely not a golf cart, it's a real car.

Q: What company is supplying the laminated lithium-ion batteries?
A: The battery is being built by AESC, the Automotive Energy Supply Corporation.

Q: Is there a lease-only program, or are only purchases allowed?
A: The Nissan LEAF? is available to lease or purchase.

Q: Will the maintenance cost over a few years be more or less than a similar gas engine vehicle?
A: Maintenance costs are projected to be equal to or lower than comparably equipped gas-powered cars.

Q: Does the battery location prevent the back seat from folding down?
A: Not at all ? the battery is located in the floor of the car and won't interfere with interior space.

Q: What is the weight of the car?
A: The Nissan LEAF? has a 3,366 lb curb weight (SV trim level).

Q: What kind of maintenance is required?

Q: Where will the Nissan LEAF? be built?
A: The Nissan LEAF? is built in Smyrna, Tennessee.

Q: Where are the batteries located? Will they take up a lot of the hatch space?
A: The battery is located in the floor of the vehicle, so it has a minimal intrusion into the interior space.

Q: How long does the "quick charge" take, and will it be available for home use?
A: In select markets, 480V quick-charging systems are now available and provide an 80% charge in under 30 minutes. For all markets, we still recommend a standard 208-240V home charging system which takes 3-4 hours or 6-7 hours depending on which vehicle you select. Quick charging will likely be available only at public stations or businesses.

Q: How much will a replacement battery cost?
