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.
This car is perfect for my needs. It has a range of about 70 miles on a full charge, which works very well for me. I don't usually need to go much further in a day. When I do need to travel I can rent a car. The interior is spacious for all passengers, the rear has a lot of space, too, and I can fit longer objects with no problem. Its a great car!
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.
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.
