Nissan is celebrating the holidays with a fun little update to the 2020 Nissan Leaf just in time for Christmas. Nissan has decided to turn the Leaf’s electric car alert tones into a holiday jingle.
The 2020 Leaf has two alert tones, one is a constant tone (known as “Canto,” derived from the Latin verb for “I sing”) for forward movement under 18.6 mph and a pulsing chime when reversing. But to celebrate Christmas, the rhythms of the two new sounds from the 2020 Nissan Leaf were combined with “Jingle Bells” and “Angels We Have Heard on High” to create the first-of-its-kind holiday earworm, or “e-worm,” with a high-tech electronic feel.
Starting on Friday, Dec. 20, in celebration of National Go Caroling Day, the holiday tune will be available for download on streaming platforms by searching Nissan Leaf Canto Carol.
