Nissan lights up its LEAF TREE with regenerative energy

December 12, 2019

It’s that time of the year once again when we light up those Christmas trees and decors with festive cheer.

For car company Nissan Motor Co. Ltd., it’s the time to light up its LEAF all electric vehicle.

Yes, you read that right: a Nissan LEAF TREE is lit up with LEDs and a reindeer to spread some holiday cheer.

What’s even more amazing about this is that this vehicle uses regenerative energy to do so.

With the help of either the e-Pedal or regenerative braking function, the LEAF can get back about 744kWh hour for every 18,000kms driven.

That’s enough to power:

  • 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

In short, you can make a lot of people happy this Christmas.

And even if it wasn’t the holiday season, this vehicle would spread some glee as its zero-emissions capability means less pollution for the planet.
