If you like British accents, pinching pennies and the Nissan LEAF, then this video is for you!

Eco Mode Button on Steering wheel. B mode on the shifter.

Nissan of Great Britain has just released a video detailing the "eco" changes to the 2013 LEAF.  Although auto enthusiasts might want to relabel the "eco mode"  to "neutered mode," we welcome this choice, as it makes the LEAF even more economical.  And who isn't trying to save money, with the holidays right around the corner?

Discussed in the video is the "b-mode," which activates what Nissan calls "amplified braking", meaning "the LEAF will slow down quicker when you release the accelerator."  This is yet one more choice for LEAF owners looking to drive as efficiently as possible.

Of note: These two modes are independent of each other.  Splendid!

The only letdown I could find in this video is that the narrator didn't use the opportunity to slip in the word "al-u-minium." Because, as you know, any vehicle that takes advantage of al-u-minum is superior to one that does not.
