The Nissan Leaf electric car recently got named as the 2011 World Car of the Year, and Inside Line is putting it to the test to see its real world driving range on the battery system.
The test involved the Nissan Leaf electric car driving at a speed of 35 miles per hour, which Nissan claims that is the optimum speed to get the best mileage out of the Leaf. If you watch the video below, it is really a boring test at 35 mph till the battery ran out.
Even though the Nissan Leaf resulted in a 132 mile driving range, but that was only done at 35 mph; realistically, we tend to drive a bit faster than that. So, Nissan’s published driving number at 100 miles for the Nissan Leaf is much more inlined.
