Nissan Leaf Joins Certified Pre-Owned Program
Nissan announced this week that it would soon add the Leaf electric car to its Certified Pre-Owned program. The Japanese automaker will back the car’s quality and performance with a guarantee that had not been available until now. Under the new program, Nissan will extend the Leaf’s powertrain and EV system warranty to 100,000 miles or seven years. The company’s director for EV sales and marketing, Erik Gottfried, noted, “As more Nissan Leaf vehicles enter the used car market, we know it’s important for Nissan to provide the second owners the same confidence in the car that the original owner enjoyed.”
Electric Car: Video
Nissan’s Leaf is currently getting plenty of media attention for its healthy summer sales as well as its news about offering the car via CPO programs. One of the Leaf’s chief competitors is also going full bore with an aggressive marketing campaign aimed at taking a piece of the rising EV market segment. The sharp little electric Spark gets a thorough review from an enthusiastic driver in the above video clip. The tester puts the Chevy Spark on the road to see if the 84-miles-per-charge rating is for real. The 2014 model in the video hits 60 mph in just 7.5 seconds, has a 130 horsepower motor, and boasts 400 pound-feet of torque. Be sure to watch the entire clip to see the reviewer’s overall star rating for the Spark EV, as well as a very surprising comparison between Spark EV, Nissan Leaf, and the Fiat 500 E. If you are a Chevy fan, the review offers a solid dose of factual, relevant data about the Spark EV.
