The car that is winning them acclaim is the Leaf EV, designed from ground up to eliminate the need of a fuel pump from car ownership. The Leaf is available in United States and Japan since last year.

The Leaf is considered to be a monumental accomplishment in the automotive industry and is touted to be the next generation motor car.
