Salina Area Technical College in Salina, KS, recently purchased a 2013 Nissan Leaf with a $12,294 grant from the North Central Regional Planning Commission.

From an article on the KSAL.com website:

There’s a lot of room in there to work, but I don’t see much to work on,” was how Whitney England described her first look under the hood of an electric car Monday at Salina Area Technical College.

England and Kody Nimmo, both juniors at Smoky Valley High School and enrolled in Salina Tech’s Automotive Technology program, got a sneak peek at the 2013 Nissan Leaf the school recently purchased with a $12,294 grant from the North Central Regional Planning Commission in Beloit.

The first thing both students noticed was the amount of space under the hood, especially compared to most modern vehicles. England and Nimmo quickly started pointing out parts common to most cars that an electric car doesn’t need: No air intake, no oil filter, no spark plug wires, no emission controls, no vacuum lines.
