The Nissan Leaf is possibly the best shot electrically powered vehicles took at conventional internal combustion.
Apart from this heart warming distinction, drivers of the Japanese EV hatchback get one more treat.
Nissan fitted the interior with a large infotainment screen that has various uses as in most normal cars. The thing it does extra is quite interesting.
The Nissan Leaf monitors driving habits and “fuel” usage producing an efficiency score. In your typical car this would be the trip fuel consumption but in the Nissan Leaf this is way better.
It is better only if you can relay somewhat to what the Playstation generation reckons should be done with interior car design. The hereby monitoring system produces a score at the end.
The cool thing about it is that the Nissan Leaf registers your figures into a ranking. Ranging from least efficient to most you can find out if you’re a wasteful racer or a tree hugging hyper miler.
Just looking at this system reminds me about the first time i took fuel economy seriously. That happened when I started to have fun with it. I would set a target and see how far lower than it that I would go.
It is somewhat distracting but seriously rewarding, which is why I’m glad the Nissan Juke offers up a better alternative.
