2014 Nissan LEAF in Countryside, IL
Myth busting is an increasingly popular interest in the United States. Television programs that have explored the truth behind long-circulated social lore have enjoyed ratings success. Myth busting Internet articles too have attracted a considerable amount of attention throughout the years. While the process of myth busting itself is often entertaining, there is also a shock value associated with discovering the validity of widely held beliefs (or lack thereof).
The staff at Continental Nissan suspects there are a number of myths surrounding 100-percent electric vehicles. From accusations of low engine production to unreliability, the 2014 Nissan LEAF in Chicago is prepared to bust every myth that would shadow its recognition as the Leading, Environmentally friendly, Affordable Family car.
Chicago Nissan LEAF Performance
Popular thought tends to box electric vehicles into the slow lane, never to depart. The 2014 Nissan LEAF in Chicago, however, delivers some myth-busting statistics in this regard.
Torque is the mechanical force responsible for vehicle acceleration, and the Nissan LEAF has plenty of it. Consider the brand-new Mazda line with its highly touted “zoom-zoom” performance. Both standard models of Mazda3 and Mazda6 max-out at 185 foot-pounds of torque whereas the Nissan LEAF produces 187. And since the LEAF does not have to channel power through a gear box, all of that torque is available lag-free at the push of the pedal.
Entirely electric vehicles can’t produce enough power to hang? Consider that myth busted.
Unique Chicago Driving with Nissan LEAF
Beyond the thrill of instant torque, the 2014 Nissan LEAF in Chicago offers one of the most unique driving experiences currently available. With no combustion, pistons, or exhaust, there’s not a lot of traditional engine noise disturbing the cabin with the LEAF. In this way, drivers can enjoy the car’s 129 city mpg equivalency in clean, noise-free peace.
The 2014 Nissan LEAF hits select showrooms in December of 2013. Stay current with Continental Nissan’s inventory by checking the dealership’s online listings for the 100-percent electric LEAF. Drivers coming in for a test drive should be aware, however, that Continental Nissan reserves the right to bust any and every myth surrounding the 2014 Nissan LEAF in Chicago.
