- The Nissan LEAF, a top-seller, transforms into the Nissan TREE just in time for Christmas.
- This Christmas car isn’t just decked out in lights – it’s a wild spectacle fuelled entirely by its own regenerative braking energy system via the e-Pedal and B mode.
- Nissan TREE’s e-Pedal and B mode go beyond style – they amp up range and defy norms. Drive 11,000 miles, and you’ve powered 20% of your average yearly household electricity use.
Let it glow, let it glow, let it glow – Nissan LEAF transforms into a dazzling Christmas TREE, fuelled by regenerative energy
Bringing festive joy and showcasing eco-friendly innovation, the Nissan have transformed their LEAF into a festive Nissan (Christmas) TREE. Covered with twinkling lights, this special edition highlights the electric car’s power regeneration during braking and deceleration.
The Nissan LEAF packs a punch with its energy-saving features. The e-Pedal simplifies driving – start, accelerate, decelerate, and stop with just one pedal. It quietly recycles energy during braking, topping up the batteries for your next ride. Meanwhile, the B mode lets you stick to tradition, regenerating energy when you brake the old-fashioned way. It’s not just a ride; it’s a subtle energy dance, making every stop count.
Helen Perry, head of electric vehicles for Nissan Europe, said:
“Santa shouldn’t be the only one with a festive mode of transport. We wanted to make the Nissan LEAF more fun at this time of year whilst driving home a very important message. We hope this custom-made vehicle inspires people about the benefits of regenerative energy. After nearly ten years since LEAF was first introduced in Europe, Nissan continues to be fully focused on providing consumers a more sustainable lifestyle through electric mobility.”
Nissan LEAF drivers can harness enough energy to power up:
- 266 Christmas trees with 700 incandescent lights for a full hour of joy
- 297 ovens for one hour to cook your Christmas dinner
- 744 televisions for five hours to watch your favourite Christmas movies
- 10,783 houses with 1,000 LED lights for five hours
Decked out with thousands of LEDs, festive baubles, and a reindeer, this car shines brighter than Rudolph’s nose. Beyond the holiday glam, the dazzling display serves as a reminder for eco-conscious drivers about the energy generation perks of owning an electric vehicle. For instance, the average Nissan LEAF driver can regenerate a whopping 744kWh of clean energy by cruising 11,000 miles. What about energy savings? It’s a solid 20% of what an average household consumes in domestic electricity. Festive and sustainable – that’s the electric drive.
