I drive this car every day about 60 miles per day and I've never run out of range. I used to spend $300/month on gas but now I have no gas costs. My electric bill has only increased about $20/month even with a full charge daily.
With more charging stations in the city I've been able to extend my range to 100+ miles by only spending about 5 -10 minutes at a level 3 quick charger.
My daily commute to work is 50 miles round trip which includes about 30 miles on the freeway. During my lunch break I drive 10 miles round trip to a fitness center to workout.
One of the most fun things about this car is the instant torque. I can zip around almost anybody on surface streets and comfortably cruise around 70mph on the freeway.

No need to ever go to a gas station again. If you drive less than 60 miles per trip, you can just charge it in your garage. Since most people commute about 20 miles, this makes sense for just about everyone. Its a small car and most families have multiple vehicles, so you can always use your gas car for trips. or just rent something with all the money you save. These vehicles are generally $7-8K used, so you can have a car payment of $100 - 150/month. Its about $2-3K less than a Nissan Leaf.
You'll need to spend about another $300-400 for a Level 2 charger (240V) because it does take a long time to charge with the included 110V charger (like 22 hours instead of 6).
