Japanese auto manufacturer Nissan has developed the zero-emissions, lithium-ion battery-powered LEAF to communicate with phone devices like the iPhone and the HTC Desire, for easier access to information such as remaining battery power in the car and updates as to when it is fully recharged.

Drivers can also remotely set the desired temperature for the car’s interior upon their return. The LEAF is set to release in early 2011 with a cost of under US$30,000. Kudos Nissan LEAF, for these innovations that offer simultaneous convenience and sustainability.

We look forward to the day that such technologies become the norm as we advance in greener living across the globe.
