Ryan Reynolds Promotes the Nissan LEAF
It seems that the Hollywood star also likes the idea behind electric cars, as Reynolds has joined up with Nissan to promote their LEAF all-electric vehicle. The carmaker’s new “Innovation for Endurance” program has just formed another partnership with him.
The collaboration will include Facebook videos, and work with top fitness industry professionals, including appearances and blog posts.
“I believe it’s possible to take great leaps forward without sacrificing a way of life. For me electric vehicles, like the Nissan Leaf, are not only representative of taking back the power, but also a significant statement about conscious ways of living,” Reynolds said.
Just as a reminder, the LEAF is motivated by a 107 hp electric motor that runs on power supplied by lithium-ion cells. Given a full charge, the LEAF will run for 100 miles before you have to plug it back in and can reach a top speed of 90 mph. A full charge takes up to 8 hours on a standard outlet, but buyers can go for the DC 50kW quick-charger, which recharges the battery up to 80 percent in under 30 minutes. US prices for the 2011 Nissan LEAF will start at $32,780 but with a federal tax-credit that all comes down to $25,280.
