New Redesigned Nissan LEAF

The new 2018 Nissan LEAF is coming to Haddad Nissan early next year and we are so excited, we wanted to tell you all about the fully redesigned battery-electric vehicle. So, what’s new other than a completely new exterior? Improvements in range; both mileage and price!

Nissan LEAF

Projected Range

Most 2017 and 2018 “short-range” all-electric cars on the market provide 90 to 125 miles of range, where as the new Nissan LEAF is expected to offer 150 miles. It is true that there are EVs out there that can drive over 300 miles, but also come equipped with a hefty price that could start at $65,000 or more. This year’s model has found a sweet spot between needed mileage and vehicle price range, especially since 84-mile range is sufficient for more than 80% off all trips taken in America. A 200 mile version of the LEAF will also be available as a 2019 model down the line.

Price Range

Now let’s talk about the price. This model starts at about $30,000 and the best part is you are not likely to be stuck on a waiting list for a new Leaf when you want one. This is actually about $690 less than the current 2017 Nissan LEAF, and can be coupled with a $7,500 federal tax credit and other local incentives; the Leaf will be effectively priced at around $20,000. This is an exceptional price for a vehicle that will save you even more on fuel.

We’d love to tell you more about the 2018 Nissan LEAF. If you have any questions, please contact us online or visit us in Pittsfield, MA and we will answer all your questions.

Throwing an Adult Halloween Party

Adult Halloween Party

Halloween is usually considered an event for the little ones—trick or treat and most local activities involve the whole family. But sometimes, you just have to throw an adult Halloween party and get in the spirit of the holiday with your friends. Here’s some tips for hosting the best party for festive adults.

Send Invites Early

Even if it’s a chill gathering, you want to send out invitations early so that guests have time to get a costume ready, as well as find someone to watch their kids.

Pick a Theme

Halloween is more fun with a theme. Go for a witch’s cottage with bubbling punch bowls, or a noir murder mystery, or a decrepit haunted house—your imagination is the limit.

Have a Costume Contest

In order to encourage people to come dressed up, you might want to promise some prizes for the best costumes! Have prizes for first, second, and third place, or if the party is big enough, rate by category!

Have Fun Games

Bobbing for apples, a murder mystery game, and even thematic activities like fortune-telling or, if you have trees in your backyard, a haunted trail go a long way.

Halloween-Themed Drinks

Having cocktails? Looking up a few recipes for some drinks that fit the mood can make all the difference.
