Hawaii has been selected as an initial launch market for the all-electric Nissan Leaf when it goes on sale in the U.S. in early 2011. According to Nissan, Hawaii's strong commitment to clean transportation is what helped them in the selection process.
Nissan and the State of Hawaii are currently working towards a partnership to promote the development of a BEV network.
The Leaf is expected to sell for $32,780 in the U.S. The vehicle will be eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit. Nissan estimates that while an average vehicle has a fuel cost of 14 cents per mile, the Leaf will cost about five cents per mile, depending on fuel and electricity costs.
The car is expected to recharge by using a special 220-watt converter kit for the home over a four- to eight-hour period, or about 30 minutes at a commercial facility.
