Guam - Earlier today in Upper Tumon at the Nissan Guam Showroom the island rolled out in the latest automotive technology, as the Nissan Leaf made its debut on island roads.
The Leaf is Nissan's first true all-electric vehicle, getting a range of about 75 miles per charge, never requiring you to make a trip to the gas station to fuel-up again, and producing zero-emissions. The 110-volt charging units are installed in the home and re-energize the battery in about three hours. Nissan is also making available a quick-charger unit that powers-up the leaf in about 15 minutes for people in the area needing a quick zap.
The very fast leaf, which does 0 to 60 MPH in under 5 seconds, retails for around $31,000, with several tax rebates applying.
