What types of cars are electric? The electric car market is experiencing a revolution that is preparing drivers for the future. If you are interested in driving an electric car or electric SUV, you may be able to find a match with Nissan.

The team at Maguire Nissan prepared a spotlight on electric cars. Drivers near Ithaca, Elmira, and Cortland, NY, can read more to find which electric vehicle type may be a match for you.

Electricity in the Empire State

Upstate New York gets a charge out of electricity. The waters of Niagara Falls have powered our community for generations. Thanks to the latest innovations in vehicle design, New Yorkers can drive all-electric vehicles, too.

How can you get around in an electric car? It's easy. Plug in your vehicle at home to get ready for the next day.

Charging stations are located near each of the five Finger Lakes. Over 100 stations in our community can keep you charged while you are on the go.

Nissan LEAF

What types of electric cars are available? When looking at the Nissan lineup, you'll find that the Nissan LEAF pairs convenience and technology. With an available EPA-estimated driving range over 200 miles, the LEAF can get you through the week on a single charge.¹

Going on a road trip? You can reach an 80-percent charge in an hour or less. The Nissan LEAF also provides drivers with 30 cubic feet of available cargo volume to pack extra luggage.

Electric cars offer more than just a convenient driving experience. You'll be comfortable in the LEAF, too. The compact car sets a high standard for convenience:

  • Automatic Temperature Control
  • Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Start
  • Six-way manual adjustable driver's bucket seat
  • Four-way manual adjustable driver's bucket seat
  • Nissan Connect® 8-inch touch-screen display

Drivers can also stay comfortable in the winter. Both available heated front seats and an available heated leather-wrapped steering wheel can let you stay toasty when it's cold outside.  

Nissan ARIYA

Drivers are excited about the Nissan ARIYA.2 Why? The all-electric SUV is expected to have the engineering you need to travel through Upstate New York:

  • E-4ORCE All-Wheel Drive
  • Hands-free driving on eligible roads
  • Intelligent Route Planner

Intelligent Route Planner will not only monitor your power supply, but help you locate fast-charging stations. E-4ORCE All-Wheel Drive will empower drivers. Expected to be equipped with Eco Mode, Sport Mode, and Snow Mode, the ARIYA can handle the road ahead.

The ARIYA will bring the resourcefulness of electric cars into the frame of a Nissan SUV. The vehicle is not available yet, but you can ask our team for more information about the Nissan ARIYA.
