2011 Nissan Leaf Long-Term Road Test


2011 Nissan Leaf SL: Drinking It Up at The Office

July 07, 2011

I spotted this new Nissan Leaf in the Santa Monica parking garage of our office getting nourishment from the wall. That outlet is 110V so it would take 21 hours to charge the car to full from empty. I hope the owner either lives close by or the battery was only partially depleted.

In any event, although he must have arrived early to snag a space near an outlet, this guy was able to make the Leaf work as his daily commuter.

So in your face EV naysayers!

And although I usually like most cars in black, the Leaf ain't one of them.
