2011 Nissan LeafBrian Woodward - Las Vegas, NV05/17/2015
Awesome for running around town. Super low maintenance. Just plug in to recharge 4-5 hours @ 240 volts at home at night. Less than $40 a month for 1000 miles. Range is 50-55 miles per charge which is MORE than enough around town. Public charging in LV is free at Nissan and most public stations...Use Plugshare app for stations.

To much misleading test data about the Leaf, The range is very misleading. hot weater you loose range, you turn on AC you loose range, you turn on Heat you loose range. charging time is a joke, 18-24 hours to charge on the little factory charger, and if the car is equipped with the 3600 watt only charge unit you will have to wait 7 hours, 7200 watt if equipped 4 hours and the 440 volt is 45 minutes if equipped, but the 440 charge station is hard to find in many areas, and vandals steal or damage the 7200 watt stations so you cant depend on a station to be working. no spare tire, and in the event you are in areas with heavy down pours of rain when the road has lots of water 4 inches or more there is a big risk of water getting in the batter
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.
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.
