The Nissan Leaf the First Fully Electric Legal Limousine

Hollywood actors are starting to become very environmentally friendly either to help the community or to give out a positive image, with the news that the new Nissan Leaf is now available it has been as the first full all electric stretched limousine which can be used legally on the road. Many of the Oscars stars now choose to use a conventional stretched limo in favour of a hybrid vehicle, with only one limousine similar to the Leaf at the moment which is the stretched eight seater Toyota Prius hybrid. The same company now making the Leaf into a limousine, will double its rear seating capacity from three passengers to six passengers.

For an all electric car the LEAF can reach up too 62mph in less than 10 seconds and has a top speed of 90mph, its battery pack offers a 100 mile operating range and a full charge on the car takes less than eight hours but the batteries can be charged to 80% capacity in 30 minutes with a fast charger, the LEAF will arrive in Britain and European production of the car will start in the city of Sunderland in 2013.
