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.
Not bad, not great. I like trying different cars- and yes, it is cool not to stop at gas pumps. But it is NOT cool to be so limited by range. I like to camp; I rent cars for camping/road trips. The economic value of this car is great if you are SOLELY OKAY with being limited to about 100 miles (plus or minus pending driving style) AND THEN a 8-10 hour charge once you're back home. I charge mine while I sleep, and drive a motorcycle, so I don't need my Nissan all the time. Would I do this again? No. Would I be unhappy keeping my car for one more year? No. Is it the best car ever? Only if you are OK w/ its limited use and expensive battery replacement when the time comes.
Not sure if this is just the one I bought but buying a four year old Leaf with 32K miles was a mistake. My range is horrible (less than 50 miles daily) when CarMax told me between 90 - 110 normally. I think the battery has lost most of its efficiency and now I am stuck with a car I can barely make it back and forth to work with.
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.
