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.

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!

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.

Great news for Seattle area all-electric vehicle fans! A recent Automotive News article reports that Nissan will add four EVs to its line-up over the next five years, along with its luxury counterpart Infiniti, which is expected to add two EVs to its product line within the same timeframe.
These six battery-powered vehicles are the Japanese automaker's share of the 12 EVs that are now planned for the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi brand through to 2022. Up until now, a breakdown has not been available by brand. But, according to Toshihiro Hirai, Corporate VP for Powertrain and EV Engineering, the six Nissan vehicles will only include full all-electric vehicles and not plug-in hybrids, like the new e-Power system, which is currently available in Japan on the Nissan Note.
Rumours of an electric SUV have also been swirling for quite some time, especially since the release of the Nissan IMx Concept at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. And there is the likelihood of a multi-purpose vehicle as well, which could prove popular with large families looking for an alternative to gas-powered minivans. These prospective models would join the next-gen Leaf, which is currently for sale in North America and boasts a significantly revised design and increased powertrain performance.
Can't wait until 2022 to purchase one of Nissan's newest all-electric vehicles? Satiate your hunger for plug-in performance with a 2018 Leaf EV. Models are arriving soon atour dealership - pre-book your test drive in one today!
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!
What a huge week it’s been for Nissan. The Japanese manufacturer just revealed their tremendous Xmotion crossover concept yesterday, and now their all-electric LEAF EV has been named the “2018 FIPA Green Car of the Year” at Detroit’s North American International Auto Show.
The distinction comes courtesy of the Inter-American Federation of Automobile Journalists (FIPA) and puts the 2018 LEAF in high regard, scoring the zero-emissions vehicle higher than all nine other award candidates. The announcement comes on the heels of the "2016 4-Wheel Drive Electric Car of the Year” honor that the previous generation EV secured.
Nissan’s LEAF recently reached the 300,000-units-sold milestone and the 2018 version seems poised to add tremendously to that number. The next-generation car, due for North American release in mere months, offers a new battery that provides a 150-mile driving range. This increases the outgoing capacity by 43. Further, the motor generates 147 HP and 236-lb.-ft. of torque, while fuel efficiency is outstanding at an MPGe of 124 city / 101 highway.
The Consumer Electronics Show 2018 is set to kick off in Las Vegas today, and Nissan is ready to make a serious splash. Among other announcements and reveals, the revered automaker is excited to show the all-new, zero-emissions 2018 LEAF to attendees.
The 2018 LEAF has been thoughtfully redesigned from the ground up. The engine and 40-kilowatt lithium-ion battery combine for sensational results. Power is in no short supply, as the car is capable of outputting 147 HP and 236-lb.-ft. of torque. There’s an increased driving range of 150 miles on a single charge—a significant boost over the outgoing model by a total of 43. And the MPGe of the hatchback is a wicked 124 city / 101 highway.
Let’s take a moment to talk about ProPILOT Advanced Driving Assistance, too. It senses where surrounding cars are and makes automatic measures to control the distance between them and your LEAF. The system will also keep you centered in your lane. Further, e-Pedal technology lets you operate the vehicle using only the accelerator—you can start, stop, and increase or decrease speed through that one input.
Hey, Seattle! The 2018 Nissan LEAF is almost here—it’s due to arrive early this year—and it’s bringing smart technology along with it. ProPILOT Assist functionality is set to change the way you drive.
The all-electric, zero-emissions 2018 Nissan LEAF utilizes the aforementioned ProPILOT Assist’s driving functionality to advance the way Seattleites and those the world over commute. Traffic Aware Cruise Control (TACC) detects cars traveling to the front of your vehicle once you pick a speed, and then intelligently adjusts your setting up or down as necessary to compensate for the automobiles around you.
TACC is superb, but that isn’t the only clever trick ProPILOT Assist has up its sleeve. Because it’s semi-autonomous, it will keep the LEAF centered within its lane when the feature is activated via the handy blue button on the steering wheel. And although Nissan still considers it a “hands-on” system, it will even handle stop-and-go traffic for you. What a boon for those dealing with pesky morning commutes!
Nissan today announced an incredible global milestone—the shipment of their 300,000th LEAF since the vehicle first went on sale in 2010. It’s a fantastic achievement for the world’s best-selling all-electric car and sets the table for the amazing advancements the next-generation EV has in store when it releases later this year.
The 2018 Nissan LEAF will surely quickly add to the success of the line when it hits showrooms across Seattle and North America in the months ahead. It’s powered by sensational technology, including an engine that generates 147 HP and 236-lb.-ft. of torque, an increase of 40 horses and nearly 50-lb.-ft. over the 2017 model. And with a new 40-kWh lithium-ion battery, drivers will benefit from a 150-mile range on a single charge.
The new LEAF is a looker, as well. The familiar “V-Motion” chrome front grille is featured, although it’s finished by a striking blue geometric pattern that’s decidedly futuristic. The hood of the car now offers greater curvature for enhanced aerodynamics, too.
Nissan’s always up to something that involves pushing boundaries and gradually evolving the world we’re living in. Sometimes that purely entails a new automobile-exclusive technology, but at other junctures, it’s something a bit grander in scope. This is the latter case, as the manufacturer is working to nurture a clean energy initiative in Japan and globally.
The initial focus comes in the Land of the Rising Sun. Nissan announced today that 2018 LEAF owners in that country qualify for the free installation of solar panels. The unique offer comes via a partnership between Ecosystem Japan and the automaker, with the goal of achieving the use of 100% clean energy to power the all-new electric vehicle. Anyone that signs up for a qualifying plan will receive the system, which can then be leveraged to juice up their EV.
The 2018 LEAF itself brings the prospect of clean energy usage outside of Japan and to the rest of the world, including within Seattle when the car releases early next year. The new vehicle adopts a maximum driving range of 150 miles on only one charge. Additionally, the all-electric engine produces a healthy 147 horses and 236-lb.-ft. of torque.
Contact us today to hear more about the LEAF and any clean energy initiatives Nissan may have cooking for the United States!
