There are some auto fans who believe that vehicles are simply better when they're made in America. Luckily, Nissan recognizes this fact, and the company continues to increase its building power here in the States. The most recent vehicle to join the "American-made" lineup is the next new Nissan LEAF.
It's official: Japanese automaker Nissan has set a new Guinness World Record with its Nissan LEAF. And, though the vehicle set a speed record, it wasn't the standard speed record that you might assume. In fact, the LEAF created a new speed record traveling backwards down a famous hillclimb in the U.K.
If you've been wondering what the 2012 Nissan LEAF is capable of, you're not alone. The all-electric LEAF represents a new type of automotive technology, and it's okay to be skeptical about new products. To ease drivers' worries, Nissan has released a unique new LEAF advertisement to increase the vehicle's clout. Of course, because the previous LEAF model sold thousands of models and is the most popular electric vehicle in the U.S., it can only take its popularity to even greater heights.

This move comes as part of NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg's green initiatives to reduce waste and make the city a more environmentally friendly place.

The market is changing, and food trucks are all the rave on street corners, at sports events, and on college campuses. Just think, you can now purchase street food from a really nice vehicle instead of that cantankerous old street cart. Nissan recently showcased its new food truck concepts at the 2011 Auto Show. These food trucks feature work counters, custom fold-out serving windows, and full exterior graphics. The Grilled Cheese Truck and the Coolhaus [Ice Cream] Truck made their debuts with delicious fare in tow.
