Nissan unveils zero emission electric Leaf car

Nissan unveils zero emission electric Leaf car
Nissan has revealed its new zero-emission electric car, the Leaf.

Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the vehicle is a medium-sized hatchback capable of seating five adults and providing a range of 160km.

The Nissan Leaf is being billed as the world's first affordable, zero-emission vehicle capable of satisfying the real-world transport requirements of consumers.

Carlos Ghosn, president of Nissan, said: "We have been working tirelessly to make this day a reality - the unveiling of a real-world car that has zero - not simply reduced - emissions.

"It's the first step in what is sure to be an exciting journey - for people all over the world, for Nissan and for the industry."

Unlike conventional cars, the Leaf is not equipped with a tail pipe and does not output any CO2 or greenhouse gas emissions.

It derives power from its regenerative braking system to ensure that it is capable of providing its full range on one charge.
