The Nissan Leaf is now green than ever. With the release of the Android app for the cleanest car on the American market, Nissan has connected the little green robot with a 100% electric car. This app gives you control over your Leaf - all from the palm of your hand. Other car manufacturers have already dabbled their hands in Android technology, but Nissan Leaf is the first zero-emissions car to do so. So put your hands up for clean energy and Android technology, everybody!
OK, so I'm kind of a really huge fan of electric cars and green technology. So naturally I was really excited about the release of Nissan's Leaf. Obviously, the car isn't perfect: it's got a limited battery range and at $32,000 it isn't exactly affordable. There may be a long way to go for electric cars to become really popular (in US at least), but Nissan shows that its Leaf comes with some nifty mobile technology. The companion Android app is basically the remote control to your Nissan car. Regardless of where you've left your car to charge, you can keep tabs on the battery level and turn the charging on/off - all from your Android screen. It gets even better: the app also allows you to schedule charges. And to prevent any unpleasant surprises, the app comes with a built-in energy meter that can estimate your current driving range.
Although there are very few place to charge an electric car, the latest mobile-to-car technology is already fully onboard!
