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.
I never want to drive a gas-powered vehicle again. The Leaf is so quiet, smooth, roomy, comfortable, powerful, agile, has good visibility, and is so cheap to operate. The range (80 miles per full charge at 44 thousand miles on the odometer) is perfect for in town errands, visiting relatives, and quick jaunts into the next city. Quick charger stations have made it possible to drive across the state without worrying about running out of battery. I can't wait til there are chargers everywhere!
The Leaf is surprisingly fun to drive and much more spacious than I would have expected for an electric vehicle. I love not needing to fill up on gas and there are many places to charge near where I live. The only downside is the range; I easily get 80+ miles per charge, but that number goes down if you drive a lot on the highway or use the heat or A/C.
