2011 Nissan Leaf: Nice Big Greenhouse

May 12, 2011

The Leaf bucks the unfortunate trend toward teeny tiny greenhouses (the byproduct of high beltlines) by giving us one that's for the most part, very functional and relatively big. It's only appropriate, really, for a green car to feature a greenhouse that lets the outside in. On sunny days like the ones we've been having, the Leaf's airy cabin makes cruising around town all the more pleasant.

Still, when it comes to green cars with large greenhouses, the Leaf has nothing on this white-hot hunk of automotive sex appeal...

Tasty, right? It's called the EcoV and it's an electric car that can reach speeds of up to 25 mph (making it street legal on roads with 35 mph speed limits, in case you're interested).

Starting price is less than $10 grand, so it can be yours for a song.
