Paul, the dealership’s Leaf sales specialist, drew triple the number of usual Saturday test drives with Clean Get Away, a party to mark installation of a new DC quick charger (DCQC).

National Plug In Day: An Accidental EV Wrangler
Short Description: 
Former Plug In America board member Alexandra Paul describes the process of rounding up hundreds of EVs for National Plug In Day's flagship event: history's biggest EV parade.

208 Alexandra Paul and her Chevrolet Volt, July 28, 2011I have a lifelong phobia of organizing get-togethers. I avoid anything more complicated than having my book club over for a potluck.

So what did I say when Zan Dubin Scott, Plug In America's Communications Director, asked me to recruit EVs for National Plug In Day’s Santa Monica parade?

I said yes, of course.

Did I mention she wanted to make it the biggest assembly of plug-in vehicles in the world?

Nissan Esflow

The Esflow is a concept sportcar of Nissan's new EV family. The Esflow uses technologies developed for the LEAF, with several enhancements, including two twin AC motors, one for each rear wheel of the vehicle. These motors will bring the Esflow from 0 to 60 mph in less than five seconds. The Esflow is currently only a concept vehicle and will likely not be produced in it's current state.

Reaching Out to Auto Dealers

Reaching Out to Auto Dealers
Short Description: 
Plug In America went to the heart of the retail automotive industry in our first booth and press conference at the 2011 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) conference. Read what auto execs, dealers, and the media that serve them are saying about plug-in vehicles.

In some ways, it's a bit premature to be reaching out to auto dealers, since most of them aren't yet selling electric vehicles (EVs) or plug-in hybrids (PHEVs). On the other hand, now is the time to let them know that Plug In America can help them succeed when they do start selling plug-ins. They could avoid some of the mistakes made by dealers with the last generation of EVs. We want them to succeed!

Nissan Townpod

The Townpod is the newest member of Nissan's ZeroEmission family. It is an all electric vehicle, designed to be customized to meet the needs of almost any driver. The Townpod's external design shares many features with the Nissan LEAF, such as hood-mounted charge ports. The Townpod is still a concept vehicle and Nissan has not yet announced any official specs.

Nissan LEAF

The Nissan LEAF was built from the ground up to be an EV. It is a 5-seater, 4-door hatchback based on Versa/Tiida platform. The LEAF has an 80kW electric motor, powered by Nissan/NEC Li-ion batteries stowed in the floorboard of the vehicle. The batteries will recharge in about 4 hours from a home charger and will charge from 0-80% in less than 30 minutes with a DC quick charger. The 2013 LEAF includes a new "S" model, which has a lower price point. The 2013 model also has an available 6.6kW charger, which reduces charge time to 4 hours on a Level 2 circuit.
