Lance Armstrong took to Twitter yesterday to announce that he had received his brand new all-electric Nissan Leaf — and he threw a photo up to prove it.

The seven-time Tour de France winner is the official spokesperson for the Leaf — and believes it to be an evolution of the car industry.

“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,” he said earlier this year. “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.”

Nissan expects to start selling the vehicle in limited quantities to the public in about three months. For more information, hit the official site here.
