Electric Cars

by: Morganne Williams

Nissan has developed an all electric car, the Nissan LEAF. This car is 100% electric and this means no gas! No gas means no emissions. It can go about 100 miles per charge. This electric car can reach speeds of up to 90 miles per hour. You can fit five passengers throught the five doors. It can be compared to the Chevrolet Volt. The Volt however is not all electric. After about 40 miles the Volts chrage runs out and it switches over to gas. This may be a good thing since after driving 100 miles in the LEAF you might be stranded. The LEAF may be all electric but the Volt may be the better option.
