"The fully-electric Nissan LEAF has been zooming across the country of Mexico for months now. So far, only taxi drivers and government officials in Mexico City and in Aguascalientes are driving them. But soon those in Mexico who want to drive a 100-percent pure electric car will be able to buy the Nissan LEAF. That is why the company is working hard to get more electric vehicle charging infrastructure in place."

Those are the words of Nissan, who touts the success of its electric LEAFs serving as taxis across Mexico.

Other highlights from the clip include:

  • Charging center (largest in all of Latin America) in Aguascalientes that services the 50 Nissan LEAF taxis in the area
  • Two Nissan-installed quick chargers, one in the heart of Mexico City and the other in the city of Aguascalientes, both for public use.
  • NissanĀ  to expand taxi programs and public charging into other cities and countries in Latin America
  • Nissan LEAF on sale to public in Mexico in late 2013
