Our ride

During the WAVE Trophy, we’ll be driving a 2012 Nissan Leaf. You can find specs and opinions here and here. Other than that, I assume most of you will know how to use Google to find further information.

Even though it seems like a tiny little critter with limited power, it is surprisingly fun to drive, mostly due to the electric motor. Unlike combustion engines, the maximum torque is available over the whole rpm range, which makes it take off like a rocket when you step on it. Of course, that’ll cost you in battery range… But that grin you get on your face is priceless so who cares.

We’ll see how the Leaf fares across Germany and in the Alps. I think we have lots of fun ahead of us…
