The state of Tennessee is now home to sustainable mobility thanks to the launch the all-new Nissan Leaf. The very first Nissan Leaf in Tennessee was delivered to Jeff Heeren at Action Nissan of Nashville.
According to Nissan Maryland, the Nissan Leaf is an affordable, mass-market, all-electric car that Nissan expects will help transform the automotive industry and the way people drive.
“Electricity is the new fuel for cars,” said Carlos Tavares, chairman, Nissan Americas. “Starting today, drivers in Nashville have the freedom to choose a future that produces zero tailpipe emissions, moves away from our dependence on fossil fuels, and represents the end of trips to the gas station. This Nissan Leaf delivery signifies the dawn of a movement that brings sustainable mobility to within our grasp.”
According to Arlington Nissan, Nashville and Tennessee are not only part of the initial launch of the Nissan Leaf, they’re also participating in The EV Project. This is a research and charging infrastructure deployment project that’s funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and administered by electric-vehicle charging company ECOtality.
Aside from Tennessee, other primary launch markets for the Leaf include Northern and Southern California, Arizona, Oregon, and Seattle.
