Nissan announced the launch of its Nissan LEAF application for Blackberry and Android smartphones, which allows LEAF owners to be in direct contact with their vehicle at all times. 

The app enables Nissan LEAF owners to manage and control many frequently used vehicle features directly from their smartphone, including checking the battery charge status, initiating charging, viewing estimated driving range and turning the climate control system on or off.

“Nissan understands that telematics and other communication services are important for consumers,” said Trisha Jung, director of vehicle connected services for Nissan North America. “By providing accessibility and functionality to the Nissan LEAF through all major smartphone platforms, we are truly delivering ‘Innovation for All.’”

The application has been available on the iPhone since the car’s release in December 2010, and is available to anyone with a Nissan LEAF, an active CARWINGS subscription, or an interest in better understanding the Nissan LEAF, according to the company.
