All-Electric Nissan LEAF Goes the Extra Mile With App-Powered Climate Control

By Sponsored on at

Electric cars are so hot right now, and none more so than Nissan’s 2016 LEAF. Not only because its 30 kWh battery can give you a 250km range from a single charge. Not only because its 100 percent electric power system kicks in with 109 horsepower. But because you can literally turn up the heat with the LEAF’s climate control system with just a few swipes of your phone through the NissanConnect EV infotainment system.

It may be a blizzard worthy of a disaster film outside, but you won’t even have to leave your home to thaw the frost and get the Nissan LEAF ready to take on Mother Nature at her chilliest. The improved NissanConnect EV infotainment system, featuring the remote defrost feature, is just one of the latest updates to the world’s best selling electric car.

The capability and reliability of the 2016 Nissan LEAF 30 kWh battery shows the future of transport is without a doubt electric. The lithium-ion battery adds capacity without driving up the battery package size, all the while allowing for speedy charge times to get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

And, once the motor’s running, you’ll be able to kick back with tunes blasting out of a premium Bose sound system, hooked up to the LEAF’s NissanConnect EV infotainment dashboard centre. Making use of a 7-inch colour display, you’ll get at-a-glance access to battery level information, navigation updates, hands-free text messaging from your connected mobile device, access to Google Places local recommendations and much, much more.
