2011 Nissan Leaf: Reverse Chime

July 12, 2011

Our Nissan Leaf has a special little shifter that screams "I'm an Electric Car."

I don't agree with the push-forward-for-reverse, pull-back-for-drive action of the shifter. Wouldn't it make more sense to pull backward when you want to go backward and push forward when you want to move forward?

Anyway, Here is a video showing you the shifter in action. When you put it in reverse, a pretty chime sounds to warn people that there is a quiet electric car on the move.
