If you drive less then 60 miles a day it's the perfect economy car. Cost of owning a Nissan Leaf is just the payments and insurance. I drive about 20 miles a day cost of electric is about 00.60 cents a day. No Smog, no oil changes, NO GAS
Quite, Fast if you need it, Handles great and fun, comfort is good for a small car
At first you will worry about how many miles you have left to drive even when it says you have 45 miles left, but you have only 5 miles to drive. and you will charge every time you get out of the car, Now I only charge twice a week
No Gas Ever
2012 Nissan LeafGemma Smith - Houston, TX05/21/2016
Quiet, smooth, reliable ride. Smooth is a huge issue in Houston where the roads are anything but smooth. I charge the car at night and it has a full 84 miles when I leave. Running a/c or heat will decrease the mileage as will high speeds but I live only 10 miles from work and everywhere I go is within 10 -15 miles from home so its great for me. I don't really like having to watch the miles if I have a lot of errands but I have never gotten really low even on my busiest day. I haven't noticed any change in my electric bill so I am pretty happy overall.
I am a Leaf on the Wind
2011 Nissan LeafLinza - Houston, TX01/26/2015
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!
