Step away from the pump and trade pollution-causing horsepower for eco-friendly kilowatts. After nearly two decades, the electric car is a reality and the Leaf has helped carve out a permanent place for battery-powered cars in a predominantly gas-centric automotive market. Following the Nissan Leaf 2011, the new second-generation Leaf from Crown Nissan of Decatur has returned with a number of upgrades that'll have naysayers changing their tune about these zero-emissions vehicles. Whether you live a green lifestyle or are simply tired of constantly fluctuating gas prices, this game-changing electric car will more than satisfy your needs. With available state and federal tax incentives that can get you up to $7,500 off the price, the 2012 Nissan Leaf's already low MSRP of $32,780 makes it a more appealing option than the Ford Fusion Hybrid, Chevrolet Volt and Toyota Prius. Electric vehicles have officially entered the mainstream and the Nissan electric car makes hybrids look as though they were merely placeholders. Now you don't have to comprise. No more gas and no more emissions - that's worth thinking about.
Just a few years ago, many believed that it couldn't be done. With the oil industry huffing and puffing at the backs of state officials and natural gas industrialists pushing the idea of a hydrogen car, first attempts at mass producing electric vehicles failed. Several of the first electric cars were actually placed in museums, as if they were relics - albeit short lived - that were never going to be seen on roads again. Then, like magic, a few years after the controversial 2006 documentary Who Killed the Electric Car?, battery-powered vehicles were brought back from the dead. Crown Nissan of Decatur is proud to offer one of the most popular and well-reviewed electric vehicles in the world. You are invited to visit our Decatur Nissan dealership and see the new 2012 Nissan Leaf today!
