Nissan engineers are always looking to provide customers with access to the latest advancements in automotive efficiency. With over 10,000 Nissan Leaf units sold in the United States, battery-powered vehicles are steadily gaining traction. And now, Nissan is adding four models to its EV family. Take a look at these EV concepts that were recently unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show to get an idea of what the future of the Nissan Leaf looks like.
The Infiniti EV
This Infiniti EV is based off of the same electric powertrain as the Leaf, but it promises up to 20 percent more driving range and a top speed of 130 mph. Infiniti engineers are set on pioneering inductive charging technology which only requires you to park over a charging plate, rather than using a traditional plug-in configuration (though the latter will still be available for public charging stations). Keep your eyes open for this luxury EV sedan in 2014.
The Utility Mover
Also coming out in 2014 is a utility van based off of the Nissan NV200, which you might recognize as New York City’s new official taxi. This elegant all-electric cargo van offers a 1,500-lb. payload capacity, but the word is mum on whether or not it will appear in Nissan dealerships stateside or if it will offer multiple configurations.
Although Nissan has been vocal about its plans to offer four EVs (including the Nissan Leaf) by 2016, exactly what the last addition to the upcoming Nissan EV lineup will be is still up to debate.—and the three choices couldn’t be any more different. The Esflow is a high-performance sports car capable, the Pivo3 (named for its three wheels) is an ultra-compact minicar, and the Townwood is a small yet capable crossover. Whatever Nissan unveils by 2016, it’s certain to be an evolutionary step forward in EV technology.

Although the Nissan Note was released globally last summer, auto press has been buzzing since the Versa Note variant was unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show this past January. With a new look, new powertrain, and new features, the 2014 Versa Note promises to be a strong replacement for the old Versa hatchback. See what this new Nissan hatchback has to offer.
The new Nissan Versa Note keeps things simple with one engine. A 1.6L inline-4 generates 109 horsepower and 107 pound-feet of torque. The engine can be mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or Xtronic CVT. The vehicle is expected to achieve an EPA-estimated 40 mpg on the highway thanks to aerodynamic tweaks such as Active Grill Shutters.
Thanks to a cavernous interior volume of 115.5 cubic feet and 60/40 split rear seats, the 2014 Versa Note boasts best-in-class cargo capacity. Additionally, all models come standard with safety features such as roof-mounted curtain airbags, driver and passenger side-impact airbags, and antilock rear drum brakes to keep you safe and in control at all times.
Plenty of cars in the compact segment offer plenty of technology, but the 2014 Nissan Versa Note is the only car in its class to offer Nissan’s Around-View Monitor system, a feature typically reserved for premium segments. Additional technology options in the 2014 Versa Note includes NissanConnect with traffic and weather navigation, a backup camera, hands-free texting, Pandora radio, and Google Points of Interest, all accessible from a beautiful 5.8-inch screen.
Be one the first to test out the new 2014 Versa Note when it arrives here at Brown’s Dulles Nissan this summer. For model availability and information about our current incentives on new and pre-owned cars in the Chantilly area, call (703) 948-1100 or contact us online today.
