Sasha was great to deal with. He was informative, friendly and fun to deal with. He wasnt pushy at all. They were fair about pricing and the whole process was easy and quick. Nicholas who did my fianancing was a pleasure to deal with and I would have to say overall this was the best experience buying a new vehicle I have had.
Outstanding Customer Service & Popcorn
From the second I pulled into the parking lot the experience started... I was greeted as soon as I exit my vehicle and was shown vehicles that I was interested in... Customer Service is key for me and when I didn't received it to my standards at another dealership which was closer to home, I decided to try Key West Ford... I am happy to say that I made a smart decision and needless to say I left with a new vehicle that I'm very happy with... If you are looking for a new vehicle I highly recommend Key West Ford...
Organized and Quick
Second time buying a new truck with the guys at Key West Ford. I'm a busy person and they worked hard while I was unavailable to finalize my truck purchase. Peter Olson worked especially hard for me and I received what I asked for. Thank you!
The salesman was nice
I was so pleased with my experience here. I had my kids with me and it could have been worse. Arash was lovely to deal with. I didn’t feel like the manager really got us.
Great Better then before. Keep the good work up.
It was a great pleasure to have a sales person care about me as a client. The other workers at Keywest Ford were very present to deal with too. In the past the after care service was not good. Keywest has change for the the better. Sales people like Peter Olson are need in the car sales industry. Peter went above and beyond to make my experience to be a great one. I would recommend if you are look for a vehicle to go see Peter at Keywest ford. The team members At Keywest ford were very different to deal with compared to my last few experiences. The new team were great. Keep the good work up.

Nissan Electric Vehicle News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
(Posted on Jan 12, 2019 at 03:07PM by Michelle Bogle)
Great news, Seattle! A longer-range Nissan Leaf is slated for release later this spring! Dubbed the Leaf e+, the all-electric plug-in vehicle will be able to travel 226 miles on a single charge (up from the current 150 miles) with its larger 62 kWh battery pack and higher output powertrain.
Available in S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS, the Leaf will generate 214 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque from the 160-kW electric motor. The charging equipment on this model has also been revised to include a new 70 kW Quick Charge System, which won’t require any additional time over the current model, even with the 55-percent more battery storage capacity.
Nissan revamped the e-Pedal system, as well, to account for the Leaf e+'s greater mass. The system will improve refinement and pedal modulation in reverse, and offer more regenerative braking overall, allowing drivers to stop more effectively using only the e-Pedal.
Around front, the e+ also sports a front fascia with blue highlights, while “Plus” badging accentuates the rear. Inside, the infotainment will be updated to include a larger 8-inch display and new software.
More details will be released about the e+ in the near future. To learn more, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, for a preliminary spec review.

If you are looking to switch to plug-in power, choose a platform with an established reputation, like a 2019 Nissan Leaf SL. This all-electric car is well-reviewed for its broad complement of driver assist features and highly engineered powertrain, boasting the excellent range and performance that you desire.
Running on a 40 kWh laminated lithium-ion battery that churns the 110 kW AC synchronous electric motor, the 2019 Leaf makes 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. It comes mated to a 6.6 kW onboard charger, which can refresh the battery in 7.5 hours using a 220V line or 40 minutes to 80 percent capacity with the quick charge port. With this combination powering the Leaf, you’ll have a total of 150 miles of range on a single charge, which is exceptional for daily commuting.
You’ll also love the SL’s inclusions, which boast numerous driver assist features like an Intelligent Around View Monitor and Intelligent Driver Alertness. For your safety, there is also Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, along with Nissan’s semi-autonomous driving feature called ProPilot Assist. This system uses a forward-facing camera and radar, sensors and an electronic control module to help the Leaf stay in the center of its lane, maintain a set speed and keep a safe gap with vehicles up ahead. Cool, right?

In need of thriftier transportation to get around Seattle? Nothing beats the efficiency of a 2016 Nissan Leaf S! This plug-in all-electric vehicle runs on easily accessible household energy, eliminating the need for gasoline to power the battery-generated motor.
Pop the “hood” and you’ll see what we mean – the 2016 Leaf’s plug-and-play formula is void of a regular combustion engine. Instead, this preowned platform runs on a 24 kWh laminated lithium-ion battery to power the 107-horsepower 80-kW electric motor to deliver a range of 84 miles. For regular short-distance commuting or errand running, this is more than enough juice to get you on your way. When it’s time to recharge the battery, simply plug in the cord and the standard 3.6 kW onboard charger will be back to full capacity in about eight hours.
Worried that you’ll have to forego the latest tech and features by switching to an all-electric vehicle? You’ll be happy to know that the S trim comes outfitted with top convenience and comfort equipment. This includes a bright 5.0-inch color display and NissanConnect with Mobile Apps, as well as standard Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity. A rearview camera is included too, plus you’ll benefit from the Intelligent Key with Push Button Start. Cloth upholstery, 16-inch steel wheels, heated mirrors and full power accessories round up the EV’s offering.

Powered by an 80-kilowatt electric motor and a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the 2012 Leaf puts out an easy 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. On a full charge, you’ll be able to drive for 73 miles, which equates to an energy efficiency equivalent rating (MPGe) of 106 mpg city and 92 mpg highway. You’d be hard-pressed to find a gas-powered engine that thrifty! Acceleration on this model is quite decent too, needing only 10 seconds to reach speeds of 60 mph from a stop.
To help you track your range and battery capacity, the Leaf comes standard with a remote vehicle access system called Nissan Connect. Other tech inclusions boast an advanced trip computer and a navigation system, as well as a rearview camera and Bluetooth connectivity. All this rides on 16-inch alloy wheels, which are complemented by LED headlamps, heated exterior mirrors, and keyless ignition/entry.

This model is perfect for new EV drivers with its regular car-like performance, solid range and value-rich features.
The 2019 Leaf utilizes a 110-kW electric motor, which produces 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Range now sits in the 150-mile span, thus adding to the EV’s appeal.

That certainly is a nice option to have!

Under its sleek aerodynamic body, the 2019 Leaf is powered by a 40 kWh laminated lithium-ion battery that creates a solid 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque from its high-response 110 kW AC synchronous electric motor. Boasting whisper quiet operation, you’ll feel relaxed and content behind the wheel, while enjoying boisterous acceleration. In Edmunds performance tests, the 2019 Leaf went from zero to 60 mph in only 7.8 seconds, which is far better than the 10.2-second performance of earlier model years.

But, if time is of the essence, a quick charge port will refresh the battery to 80 percent capacity in just 40 minutes.
The SL trim looks sharp with its LED headlights and signature daytime running lights on the exterior, which are complemented by heated sideview mirrors with integrated turn signals. Slip inside and the refinement continues with leather-appointed heated seats and six-way power adjustments for the driver, along with a heated steering wheel.

This model boasts great affordability with zero gas costs, making it inexpensive to purchase and keep on Seattle’s roads.
The mid-range 2017 Leaf SV is powered by an 80-kW AC synchronous motor, which produces 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque.

Own the vehicle that The Car Connection gave a 10-out-of-10 for fuel economy. The 2016 Nissan Leaf SV delivers incredible zero emissions performance and a best-in-class range of 107 miles, making it a well-suited option for eco-conscious drivers in Seattle, Washington.
Unlike combustion engine vehicles, the 2016 Leaf is fully powered by regular household energy. The SV trim is anchored by a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that generates the 80-kW electric motor for a total of 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. As mentioned, that will net you a range of 107 miles (or an EPA rating of 114 MPGe) without a single drop of gasoline. When it’s time to “fuel up”, the 6.6-kw onboard charger will refresh a completely discharged battery in only four hours, but if that’s not quick enough, the standard DC fast-charging port only needs 30 minutes to juice up the battery to 80 percent capacity.
Aside from its efficiency, the Leaf also scored top marks for its styling, comfort and quality. On the exterior, the SV trim is appointed with upgraded 16-inch alloy wheels, along with a tailgate air deflector to reduce energy use at higher speeds by cutting wind resistance. Inside, the cabin boasts a 7.0-inch central touchscreen that includes navigation and Nissan Connect with handy mobile apps. The seats are even made out of velvety upholstery crafted out of recycled soda bottles. Bluetooth connectivity, an intelligent key fob, and a rearview camera are standard too.

Inside the spacious cabin are full power accessories, keyless ignition and entry, and cruise control, along with a rearview camera to assist with tricky parking lot maneuvers.
