2011 Nissan Leaf: A Simple Interface for a Complex Car

March 22, 2011

The first time I drove the Leaf I was pleased to find this fairly simple center stack layout. For a car with so many possibilities for gadgets and buttons, the designers clearly showed some restraint here.

It's not exactly a perfect layout -- there are no tuning and volume knobs for instance -- but for the most part you can pretty much take a quick glance over and find what you need instantly. This is becoming increasingly difficult these days even in normal cars, so the fact that Nissan kept it simple in its bleeding edge electric is a positive sign in my book.
