Passing Gas Stations!
By carlover59 on

Vehicle

2012 Nissan Leaf SL 4dr Hatchback (3-phase, 4-pole electric DD)

Review

Had for over a month and with nearly a 1000 miles, I haven't had to purchase any gas yet for our other car (gas of course, we always drive the Leaf whenever possible). The Leaf feels like a luxury car, not a economy car. Quieter than a Lexus, a smooth ride and based upon the electricity used so far, averaging around 140 mpg equivalent. The city driving range has been around 80 miles which for my daily commute has been good.

Favorite Features

No gas required, quiet smooth ride, loaded with technology, doing the right thing for future generations.

Suggested Improvements

Improve range for long distance trips...hopefully technology will continue to improve so EV's will replace traditional gas vehicles.
