Nissan LEAF Receives New Bose Energy Efficient Sound System
The 2013 Nissan Leaf, going on sale later this month, sports a more defined sound system. The addition of the custom-designed Bose Energy Efficient Series sound system, the Leaf now offers a screaming audio system to complement its reputation as one of the quietest vehicles on the road. The new Bose system delivers powerful, high-quality audio with a significantly smaller footprint than most other sound systems, and cuts the electrical current in half. "Early adopters of electric vehicles were thrilled to have a zero-emissions vehicle and now that we're expanding the market and it matures, many customers are asking for more amenities in their EV," said Brendan Jones, Nissan director of EV Marketing. Available in the Premium Package on the SV and SL models of the Leaf, the Bose Sound System comes with six power-efficient speakers that are smaller and lighter than the average system, along with amplifiers that are able to perform at higher levels without compromising power, weight, or space. A powerful bass unit has also been installed, and it is small enough to be mounted in the rear cargo area of the LEAF. It's all an effort to provide a high-end sound system, but without the tremendous drain on energy such systems usually have. Pricing for the new 2013 Nissan LEAF starts at $28,800 for the S model, and depending on location, it can be purchased for $18,800, making it the lowest priced five-passenger electric vehicle sold in the U.S.. With this kind of pricing, the LEAF has been put on the same level as the gas-powered vehicles of its size. The lease offer for the 2013 LEAF will continue as well, even on the newly added S models.
