Nissan LEAF Vehicles to Charge at AeroVironment Stations

January 12, 2010

SMYRNA, TN - Nissan North America has selected AeroVironment (AV) to supply electric vehicle home-charging stations and installation services supporting the introduction of the zero-emission, all-electric Nissan LEAF later this year.

The Nissan LEAF five-passenger electric car will be powered by an advanced, lithium-ion battery pack that will provide a drive range of 100 miles on a full charge, as measured by the LA4 test cycle. AV's Nissan-branded charging stations will be available at the sale of each Nissan LEAF as part of the vehicle's total driving system. The home-charging stations are designed to provide a safe and reliable charge when installed with a connection to a 220-volt line. It will take eight hours to fully charge the Nissan LEAF from a fully discharged state.

AV's nationwide network of licensed electricians will offer pre-installation home assessment services prior to vehicle delivery, and will install the charging stations.

Nissan announced this supply agreement at the North American International Auto Show. The Nissan LEAF will go on sale in select markets in the United States in December.

The automaker has established a Nissan Green Program 2010, with key priorities to reduce CO2 emissions, cut other emissions, and increase recycling.
