Used 2013 Nissan Leaf SV for Sale
Reviews for 2013 Nissan Leaf
Possibly your new best friend!
Ok, let's address the elephant in the room: range. On an 80% charge I average between 40-50 miles and 50-60 miles on a 100% charge, in city driving conditions. If this does not meet your round trip commute needs or you don't have the option of charging at your destination then this is probably not the car for you. If you fall within these parameters then read on.... We drive this car about 600-700 miles a month. If compared to the city MPG of our gas compact sedan that's about $70 in savings a month which is half the cars payment and we only put $1500 down! I work with people who commute 36 miles a day, and spend more than my payment just on gas. We live in a condo complex and the outlet I use to charged is billed to my HOA!
Excellent fit for urban commuting
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.
Great commuter car
Easy to operate, and super low operating cost. No gas or oil changes, and no wasted time at the gas station. Gets about 75 miles on a full charge. I usually put about 40 miles per day on mine, and charge it off of 110 (standard outlet) and it takes about 8 hours to charge, while I'm sleeping.
