Three weeks ago, I posted a photo of Jeff's new electric car by Nissan called LEAF. He has been driving this car to work and sometimes on our shopping day and he is loving it. What I love about it is the little section on the dash where it shows you how much tree you grow just by driving efficiently. Let me explain.
|Look at the inverted U beside the red lights - this is the gauge of how efficient you are driving|
|Now you can see a tree, it starts just a trunk and then it adds branches until a full tree has grown|
|Once the tree has grown, it moves to the side and it starts over again. The most Jeff's has grown is 2.5 trees during his commute to and from work when there's a lot of traffic.|
As this is a 100% electric car and not a HYBRID, Jeff has never bought gas since May 8 and never will unless I trick him in paying for gas for my car. This car has a lot of bells and whistles but having said that, it is the quietest car that I have been on. It even has a tiny beep when backing up to warn pedestrians because the car is so quiet. The other bonus is that now he can drive on the HOV lane as he is driving a ZERO EMISSION car.
