2012 Nissan Leaf SV 4dr Hatchback (3-phase, 4-pole electric DD)
The vehicle is every thing that I expected from the research that I did. I would rate it higher but I have only had the vehicle for a week so I still want to evaluate the car more before I determine whether there should be an excellent rating or not. Thus far I am continuing to see the advantages of having a EV. I notice many other people driving smaller gas vehicles and it is there second or third vehicle and I wonder why they have not gone EV.
Favorite feature is not buying gas but you can add to that no oil spots in the garage or driveway, no oil changes, the wings timer, and the comfort inside.
Battery life and/or way to quick charge a battery without harming the battery so you may travel continuously on your way. Make a quick charge the length of time someone can refill and use the bathroom and pay for a cup of coffee about 30 to 45 minutes.
