My commute consists of 5 days a week 33 miles each way on mostly highway (55-60mph) with limited city traffic.
I can drive back and forth to work on 1 charge with no problems of range as I pull in my home with about 30 miles of range.
You must get a home charger as the trickle charge (regular 110 outlet takes to long to charge).
I installed for $1800 the AV Charger which is a 220 volt/30amp charger which charges the car from empt to full in 3-3.5hrs or about 26 miles per hour of charge.
The information above is based on driving in April and May in Central NJ.
I have not driven the Leaf in the colder temperatures but I will post a follow up this winter.
1) Zero emissions
2) Fun to drive
3) Cost savings (my lease is 299/month with no money down and insurance is 100/month.
I save in gas $11 per day and since I no longer take the toll roads another $5 per day.
So the car really only costs me $119
$299 Lease + $100 insurance +$40 electric - $320 gas/tolls savings =$119
