Nissan Leaf – Click above for high-res image gallery

If the vision of James Bond driving the BMW 750il remotely via his cell phone in Tomorrow Never Dies is your idea of a perfect app for a vehicle, than the setup for the Nissan Leaf is sure to disappoint. The Leaf's iPhone app is quite limited and remotely driving the car is certainly not one of the options. In fact, the app does so little that it seems out of place compared to the technological marvels that can be found within the Leaf.

Alright, here's what the iPhone Leaf app can do. It can send a message to the vehicle to either warm or cool the interior to a preset temperature ahead of time, and it can tell you how full the battery is at any given time. And that's it. Nothing special if you ask us... and we're hoping that more functions are added in soon, but for now preset temps and charge status is all you get. Disappointed? We certainly are; we had visions of remotely piloting the Leaf ala James Bond dancing through our heads, only to find out our dreams have been hopelessly dashed. Oh well.
