USA: Go 100 miles on $3

MANSFIELD — Tom Kyff pushed a button on a 2012 Nissan LEAF, and there was complete silence.

“It’s on,” said Kyff, manager of Nissan of Mansfield, as he showed off the inside of the LEAF — a 100 percent electric car on the lot at Mansfield Motor Group’s Nissan of Mansfield, 1493 Park Avenue West.

“The future has arrived at Nissan of Mansfield,” Kyff said, listing the many features on the LEAF, which stands for Leading Environmental Affordable Family car.

“It’s a lithium-ion battery. Testing has shown us that after five years it will still have 80 percent of capacity. After 10 years it should still have 70 percent of capacity. The battery does have an eight-year, 100,000-mile warranty.”

The car, which arrived this week, will be marketed differently than traditional cars.
