Lance Armstrong is ready for his Nissan Leaf and so are we!
The seven-time Tour de France champion is the official spokesperson for the all-electric five-passenger hatchback — which features a 23 kilowatt-hour lithium-manganese battery that’s good for 100 miles of driving — and, according to Nissan, will be the first person to receive one of the fancy green automobiles this summer.
In a new promotional video for the car, Armstrong discusses his love-affair with the vehicle, saying:
“I think the most exciting thing for me about the Leaf is that it’s the first of it’s kind. Anytime you talk about technology — if it’s a computer, or if it’s a phone, or if it’s a bicycle — you always talk about next level. Like, what’s next level? Next level is the stuff that just blows you away. To me, the Leaf was just really, in my opinion, what I would call next level.”
