Auto tech: Nissan goes greener with Leaf electric vehicle

Nissan’s second attempt after the Altima Hybrid to actually become known as a green(ish) automaker in America? The Nissan Leaf is a four-to-five seat, front-drive C-segment hatchback.

Nissan’s main selling point for the leaf is not just that its a specialty urban runabout, but rather, it was designed as an everyday vehicle that meets the needs of 70% of the world’s motorists. I think Nissan’s perspective has been based upon practicality (though important) more than the needs of motorists in terms of exterior design.
