Electric Vehicles: Which Is the Greenest?

It’s official; the combustion engine is officially on the ropes. With regulators expecting to approve a plan to ban sales of new gasoline-powered cars in California by 2035, the U.S. is stepping away from the internal combustion engine.

So, in a world that’s soon to be out of oil and getting hotter by the day, which is the car of our dystopian future?

Fully Electric Vehicles

Since we’re talking about fully electric vehicles, the Nissan Leaf E.V. is at the top of the list with a Green Score of 67 by American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). It’s no surprise that as of 2021, Nissan’s technology flagship E.V. is the leading all-electric car in the U.S., U.K., and Japan, worth the mention in a world where Tesla gets all the headlines.

The Leaf is a small hatchback, so you shouldn’t anticipate much in terms of space. Interior design is about average for mid-size hatches, with the exception of La-Z-Boy comfy seats. All Leafs get an 8.0-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You’ll get Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 suite, another standard feature. The seats and esthetics of the car’s interior have clearly been designed for a laid-back driving style.

While not built for hooning up hills and mountain passes, the Nissan Leaf E.V. sits stable on the road or motorways. By pulling off the accelerator, Nissan’s “e-Pedal” technology enables strong regeneration and modest mixed friction braking. The e-Pedal’s electronics system makes quick work of decisions such as when to use the friction brakes and when to turn on the brake lights.

The battery has the exact physical dimensions as the previous generation, but thanks to better
chemistry being employed this time around, it has extended its range to 168 miles on a single charge of the new 40kWh capacity battery.

The Leaf can be charged using a regular 120-volt outlet and is compatible with a 240-volt outlet as well.According to the company’s website, charging takes 7 hours on both options. The only major maintenance the Leaf requires is a change in battery, which is required every 3-5 years.

The Nissan Leaf E.V. range rolls out in three different variants: the Nissan Leaf 110kW Acenta 39kWh, the Nissan Leaf 160kW e+ N-Connecta 59kWh (ProPilot), and the Nissan Leaf Tekna, with the latter being the “greenest” option.
