We just purchased a 2018 F-150 from Robert Antoniak at Key West Ford in New Westminster BC. The truck is awesome. we looked around at all the makes of full-size pickups, new and used, and finally settled on a Ford. From the time we walked into the dealership until we drove the truck home, the service was outstanding. Robert was professional, informed, and patient. He listed, advised, educated and helped us, as new to full-size pickups, to decide what it was we needed and, more important, what we didn't need. He spent more time helping us out then we would have expected, and he has a great sense of humour. I would recommend Robert Antoniak and Key West Ford to anyone looking for a new or used vehicle.
Great customer service
I bought my fourth car from this dealer ship and every time I got very satisfy. I got a used car and they took care of both of us .

Allan was awesome guy got me the best deal on F 150. I recommend him to anyone and the whole team is good people. Thanks guys !
I bought my Jeep from there. It was the smoothest purchase i ever made. Tom was delightful. He wasn’t pushy as some sales people you might encounter. I’ve had a few sales people I dealt with a few dealership prior to buying my car and I made my decision with Ford because of this experience( I have to mention Hamid at Subaru Dealership at Boundary is also great.). Tom is very informative and helpful. I can’t say enough good things about Tom and how professional him
and his management team was. Go with these guys if you want to have a piece of mind.
Pleasant experiance in purchasing my new vehicle.
The total experience of purchasing my new vehicle from Allan was enjoyable. Allan was very informative explaining thing and did not push for a sale allowing me to come to the decision that the car I wanted was the right vehicle for me. Every one else I dealt with at Key West Ford was also very friendly and helpful. All in all it was a pleasant experience and I would definitely do it again when the time comes.
Very pleasant car purchase experience with Peter
Found a car online, called in and scheduled an appointment with Peter. He got the car prepared before we arrived and got us a great deal. Highly recommend!

Within every Nissan office hangs a banner - a collection of bright colors and brand stickers, with 1,000,000 stretched across in a big, bold font. This is no arbitrary number. Instead it serves as a future goal, reminding both sales representatives and engineers to come together for an EV push like no other.
Nissan intends to turn its LEAF trim into a global force - and we think it will succeed.
As Fortune explains, Nissan has recently unveiled a plan to transform the automotive world - sending its 2018 LEAF to China, Thailand, and other southeast Asia ports. This expansion of its electric line is to accommodate the rising interest in economy platforms, introducing consumers to class-leading performance (including a 40-kWh lithium-ion battery and a 110-kW AC synchronous motor, both of which deliver a single-charge drive-range of 151 miles). This platform will serve as a perfect showcase of smart mobility.
It will also help to usher in worldwide domination.
Spurred by the 2018 LEAF’s recent success, Nissan intends to propel its EV line-up forward - by achieving 1,000,000 annual sales by 2020. Positive reactions to its latest 240-volt battery system has proven the viability of plug-in platforms; and it believes it can redefine the entire market. By emphasizing superior economy (112 MPGe) and dynamic power (147 HP), the brand can change public perception and develop an entirely new demographic base.
Expect to see the LEAF conquer every chart by 2020.

Nissan is back with another exciting collaboration with the legendary Hollywood automotive fabricators at Vehicle Effects – the same designers that created the seven "Star Wars: The Last Jedi”-inspired cars at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.
But this time, Nissan didn’t reveal “The Force” – they unveiled a trio of 2018 Leaf concept cars, inspired by “A Wrinkle in Time.” This collaboration celebrates the automaker’s partnership with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, which produced the film.
These one-of-a-kind Leaf vehicles use advanced LED technology to create a mesmerizing light show effect similar to the one seen in the movie. With breakthrough technology being a key part of the storyline, collaborating with the Nissan Leaf was a natural fit. After all, the cornerstone of the Leaf EV is the inclusion of revolutionary technologies, like ProPilot, which relieves the stresses of highway driving for motorists.
According to CarScoops, all three modified Nissan Leafs use design elements inspired by the extravagant costumes worn by the film's characters, including Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon). Custom touch-sensitive screens covering the windshield and side windows also act as a stage for the interactive light show, which mimics the "wrinkle" effect from the movie. Additionally, the concept cars are equipped with heat-sensing cameras that track and react to approaching users.
Unfortunately for Disney fans, these Leaf show vehicles are not for sale. However, they do celebrate a new world of technology, which can be found on stock 2018 Leaf models.

By now, you've heard all of the amazing things that the Nissan Leaf can do: it eliminates gas costs with its plug-in performance, it can drive 150 miles on a single charge, and it can even let motorists accelerate, decelerate and stop their car by using the accelerator pedal alone. All pretty impressive, right?
Well, now, the Leaf is up to its latest endeavor - partaking in the Electric Explorer African Challenge 2018, which is the first-ever EV expedition across Africa.
Driven by Polish traveler, Arkady Paweł Fiedler, and accompanied by photographer Albert Wójtowicz, the two men will traverse great distances in an unmodified Leaf, starting in Western Africa and finally crossing western Europe to their home country. Poor road conditions, limited charging infrastructure and dramatically diverse weather conditions are sure to make their trek a challenge, but the adventurers are confident.
"We're optimistic," said Fiedler in a press release. "As part of the tests, I've already travelled over 4,000 kilometers in Poland in a Nissan Leaf, and I'm positively surprised by the driving range offered."
Apart from being the first ever EV journey across the African continent, the expedition also aims to raise awareness of plug-in technologies that are now available to the masses. The goal is to show consumers that they have a choice - all of which has a great impact on the earth and our environment.
Curious to see how well the Leaf fares? You can follow along with Fiedler's journey on Facebook and Instagram.

The Nissan Motor Corporation recently announced that its best-selling electric vehicle, the Leaf, has earned a five-star safety rating from the Japan New Car Assessment Program. This is the highest rating possible that an automobile can be awarded.
The zero-emission Leaf scored 94.8 points out of a possible 100 for occupant safety in a collision. The program is run by Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism and the National Agency for Automotive Safety and Victims' Aid.
According to Nissan, the 2018 Leaf offers a host of standard safety features, which contributed to the EV's five-star rating. They include a highly rigid body structure, six SRS airbags, seats with enforced headrests and back frames, and seat belts with pre-tensioners and load-limiting capabilities for the front and rear outboard seating positions. The Leaf is also equipped with a number of advanced technologies, including ProPilot for autonomous single-lane driving on highways, ProPilot Park autonomous parking, and e-Pedal, which lets drivers accelerate and brake by operating only the accelerator pedal.
The next-gen Leaf also passed the Japan New Car Assessment Program's electric shock protection trial with flying colors, which tests to see how well a vehicle protects occupants from being shocked in a collision. The EV's highly protective battery case, layout and body structure performed extremely well by shielding passengers from high-voltage parts. The car is also equipped with a high-voltage cut-off device that activates in a collision, thus offering additional security.
The 2018 Leaf brings top safety to Seattle, Washington! To schedule your test drive in this award-winning EV, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan.

We're just two months into 2018 and the all-new next-gen Nissan Leaf keeps raking in the hardware!
Last week at the Chicago Auto Show, it was announced that the best-selling EV in the world is now a winner of Kelley Blue Book's Five-Year Cost to Own Award in the electric vehicle category. For cost-conscious, enviro-aware Seattle area drivers, this is excellent news!
According to KBB, the Five-Year Cost to Own Awards honors new vehicles and brands with the lowest projected ownership costs, based on data for new cars for the initial five-years of ownership. It takes into consideration depreciation, expected fuel costs, finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees for all new models within that time period.
Redesigned for 2018, the Leaf now offers a 40% greater range than the original, as well as a more appealing exterior styling. It also incorporates Nissan's Intelligent Mobility suite, featuring technologies such as ProPILOT Assist, e-Pedal, Automatic Emergency Braking and more.
"Nissan Intelligent Mobility is about applying the latest technology to set a new benchmark for exciting and safe driving and the all-new Nissan Leaf delivers on that in every way," said Brian Maragno, Head of Nissan's EV Marketing and Sales Team. "In addition to the exhilarating drive, EVs are inherently less expensive to operate than gas-powered cars and the 2018 Nissan Leaf provides more range, content and technology at a lower MSRP than the previous generation, offering customers more value at a lower price."
To learn more about the 2018 Leaf and its low cost of ownership, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to compare pricing and specs.
It’s a collection of numbers. Throughout January critics have jotted down every EPA estimation - comparing drive-ranges and mileage promises, trying to decipher the slightest power variations. The impending release of the 2018 LEAF left them anxious for answers. Would this all-electric hatchback deliver the necessary performance? Could Nissan surpass its competitors?
Both questions can be greeted with an enthusiastic Yes.
According to Jalopnik, the 2018 LEAF’s drive-range has just been revealed - and it’s a staggering 151-miles. While this number had been speculated for months, no official confirmation was available… until now. After rigorously testing the 40-kWH battery pack, the EPA assures critics that this Nissan platform will deliver best-in-class power; and it will easily surpass its closest rivals (the Ford Focus Electric, the Honda Clarity, and the Volkswagen e-Golf).
How does it achieve such an impressive performance? Nissan has fused the 2018 LEAF with both a 110-kW AC motor and a 192-cell lithium-ion system. When paired with a shortened gearbox (which improves responses times and eliminates down-shifting), the hatch can rev for more than 150 miles per single full charge. This will brand it a perfect option for Seattle commuters, accommodating their day-to-day needs with ease.

2018 has been a big year for Nissan. Just in the last month, accolades and awards have been rolling in for the automaker, highlighting excellence in all areas of their product line-up. The Nissan Xmotion concept car recently drove off with a 2018 EyesOn Award, while the Leaf EV took high honors in the electric car category of What Car? Car of the Year Awards. And now, Nissan is gearing up once again for another win; the Leaf was just named a finalist in the World Car of the Year Awards!
Representing the electric vehicle category, the Nissan Leaf is up against three other models: the BMW 530e iPerformance, Chevrolet Cruze Diesel, and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. A panel of 82 automotive journalists will evaluate the vehicles and the field of finalists will be narrowed down even further at the Geneva Motor Show. The winner for the World Car of the Year Awards will be officially announced at the New York Auto Show on March 28, 2018.
At Kirkland Nissan, we are expecting our Leaf EV to come out on top, especially since the next-gen model brings new enhancements and innovations to the masses. This includes Nissan's all-new ProPilot Assist technology, which is the future of semi-autonomous driving. The 2018 model also boasts an increased range of up to 150 miles, which is considered a huge gain in the plug-in electric world.
And, the Leaf is no stranger to this award. The EV took home the win back in 2011 and we are confident that it can do it again.
Are you excited for the winners to be announced? We are too! Stay tuned; we hope to deliver news of the Leaf's victory later this spring!

The all-new next-gen Nissan Leaf isn't available for purchase at our dealership in Seattle, Washington, but that hasn't stopped the world's most popular EV from raking in the hardware from across the pond. Most recently, the 2018 Leaf was named the "Best Electric Car" in the What Car? Car of the Year Awards, which is one of the UK's biggest car-buying media brands, widely regarded as a trusted source for new car advice.
Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car?, praised the award-winning model for its year-round range and performance. "The electric car market has never been more competitive, yet the Leaf saw off all its rivals because it makes the most sense to most buyers," he said in a statement. "It combines excellent performance with generous standard equipment and low running costs. And even in winter weather, its real-world range is good."
This is thanks to a host of new innovations found on the 2018 Leaf, which allow the EV to drive farther, better and smarter than ever before. This includes available ProPilot Assist, which helps motorists navigate stop-and-go traffic by assisting control of acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane highway driving. The 2018 Leaf also delivers an increased range of up to 150 miles and incorporates standard Nissan Intelligent Mobility features, such as Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and e-Pedal technology.
When the all-new Leaf descends upon our dealership, it will signal the future of transportation in Seattle, Washington. To pre-book your test drive, contact us today or browse our online inventory to see many other great in-stock models.

The folks over at Nissan have been up to a little fun. This week, they unveiled how their semi-autonomous ProPilot Assist technology isn't just for cars.
Set in a traditional Japanese inn known as a ryokan, the automaker previewed self-parking slippers, tables and floor cushions much to the surprise of the hotel's visitors. As you can see in the video below, when these items are not in use, they automatically return to their designated spots with the push of the button. This is similar to how Nissan's ProPilot Assist is capable of using the steering, brakes, and throttle to maneuver a vehicle into a space without the brain power or physical input of a driver.
This isn't the first time that Nissan has applied their technology to inanimate objects. Just last year, they innovated an autonomous chair to help alleviate the strain of waiting in line. When the person at the front of the line stands up to be served, the now-vacant chair moves to the back of the line, so another person can sit down and wait in the queue. Imagine having these chairs at the DMV? Talk about a game-changer!
From automated slippers and pillows to self-parking vehicles, ProPilot Assist strives to take the tedium out of daily life. To experience this technology for yourself, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, to schedule a test drive in a 2018 Rogue or Leaf all-electric vehicle.
For years, the high cost of parts and development associated with large electric vehicles has stagnated that field. However, beginning in Japan, Nissan is now working to use LEAF technology to jumpstart an EV bus project that may eventually bring affordable zero-emission public transit worldwide.
Part of a Kumamoto University joint project with the local Ministry of Environment, the endeavor hopes to reduce or eliminate CO2 emissions from large vehicles. The “Yoka ECO Bus” is slated for real-world testing in western Japan beginning in February and will use an inverter pulled straight from the Nissan LEAF. A specialized gearbox is also being developed by the automaker.
Of course, the implementation of LEAF technology into this ambitious project is a no-brainer. Nissan’s car has shipped more than 300,000 units worldwide since its inception and is renowned for its progressive design. The upcoming 2018 model will bring consumers a 150-mile driving range, as well as 147 horses and 236-lb.-ft. of torque. Further, the zero-emissions EV will be run by a 40-kilowatt lithium-ion battery that’s capable of a tremendous 124 city / 101 highway MPGe.
With such technology under its belt, it seems that the EV bus project is bound for great success not only in Japan but, eventually, globally. Call us at Kirkland Nissan today to discuss the manufacturer’s all-electric endeavors, including the upcoming 2018 LEAF!
