2012 Nissan LeafJason Caswell - Colorado Springs, CO01/12/2017
This car is a great get around car. There are many pros and a few cons that I can see so far. The charging time on a 440V (quick charge) is about 30m for a full charge, for a 110V I plug in at night and it is ready in the morning. This car is perfect for just getting around, especially with the growing number of charging stations that are popping up.
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.
Range can be a bit of an issue, but once you get use to it, the Leaf can be a lot of things. Interior space is bigger than the outside would suggest. It handles grocery runs and trips to soccer games. And, if you're so inclined, the electric torque and relatively flat cornering can make for a surprisingly fun experience.
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.
