The Nissan Leaf Arrived in Mauritius
13 February 2012 - Défi Media Group
Premiere in Mauritius, the first country in the Southern Hemisphere to host the Nissan Leaf, the fully electric car, zero emissions of Japanese automaker Nissan Motors.
ABC Motors, the local dealer is finalizing the preparations for the official launch scheduled this Thursday at the Swami Vivekananda International Convention Centre, attended by the vice president of Nissan, Gilles Normand. For the development of its zero emission electric cars, Nissan has been working on efficiency and vehicle performance, the conversion rate of energy "tank to wheel" and C02 emissions generated from the production line.
The result is the Nissan Leaf, an electric vehicle that is both ecological, aesthetic and performance: a 100% electric car, zero emissions, a range of over 160 km and a maximum speed of 140 km / h.
In addition, Nissan Leaf is the solution "zero emission mobility." It is a vehicle designed to be propelled by the latest generation of Lithium-ion batteries. Reload Nissan Leaf is a clean and easy operation. Simply connect your Nissan home, office, during the races .... And the cost is only 25% of what you would put in a conventional car!
And more importantly, more economical than a hybrid. The aerodynamic design of ultra Leaf saves energy and reduces wind noise. 100% electric, it stands at the forefront of technology. Its security is also at the forefront of innovation since the Nissan received 5-star Euro NCAP crash tests. It offers all the security of a family saloon: six airbags, ABS, ESP ... and none of the risks of fuel.
A specially designed interior
Nissan Leaf offers a new pipe. More reactive than most conventional family sedans, it also recharges during deceleration and braking to each. Leaf also offers a new interface. Flywheel intuitive joystick that replaces the gear lever, the reversing camera, and many others, all elements of the cabin have been specifically designed for this little beauty, inspired by nature to act responsibly. Note that the Nissan Leaf was named 'World Car of the Year 2011' and 'Japan Car of the Year 2012' and has so far garnered no less than 9 titles.
However, the height of paradox, as the Leaf holds for undeniable ecological and economic values, as much can we afford to be surprised at the distance - a little too friendly - that the Mauritian authorities seem to want to observe with regard to its potential.
"Singapore and Malaysia - countries to which we often refer - through the so-called TIDE-MORE, granted in the past two years an exemption from customs duty (100% for private companies and 60% for individuals) on hybrid and electric vehicles. And they come to extend this exemption to one additional year, "do you stand out from the side of ABC Motors. "Turn any page of car magazine, you will see that the electric car is that of the future. electric car should be a strong symbol of Maurice Ile Durable but unfortunately, despite numerous discussions held, nothing has been materialized in government, "laments one local dealer of Nissan.
Furthermore, the electric car absolves us of the different types of conventional vehicle emissions such as particulate matter (PM), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbon (HC) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) more unhealthy in the vehicle fueled with diesel, among others.
