Assuming one is looking for an in-town commuter vehicle, and the range of 80 miles/charge isn't a problem, this is an excellent vehicle. I drive 8-9 miles to work and 8-9 miles back home 5 days/week. As a second car this gets modest use and we have another for highway travelling. My needs seem to fit well with what this car is optimized to do.
I LOVE my Leaf!
2013 Nissan LeafMerri T - Decatur, GA05/12/2016
After driving a Leaf, it would be hard for my to go back to driving a gas car. It drives so smoothly, it is such a beautiful car with such great features (heated seats, wonderful sound system, dependable, virtually no maintenance whatsoever). My only wish is that Nissan would offer batteries with longer millage so I can take my wonderful car with me on longer trips! My daily commute is minimal and I come from a two car home, so this is the perfect car for me. If you have a long drive I would recommend a hybrid, but EVs are the best--they have speed, they absolutely glide, are perfectly quiet, and really cut your costs as far as upkeep goes. All of this and you can feel good about making a choice that is also environmentally friendly.
Love the Nissan Leaf!

If you're thinking of an electric vehicle, this is the one! It's easy to charge from a regular plug in my garage. It charges fully in 8 hours. I haven't been to a gas station in 3 months! It is also incredibly quiet. You won't miss the roar of the motor and will enjoy hearing the great sound system it has. It has been ideal for me as a commuting car.
The Nissan LEAF carries up to five passengers, and the latest models have an effective range of over 100 miles on a single charge.* With an average price of $10,000 or less at CarMax, this daily driver is one of our most popular electric vehicles.
