2013 Nissan Leaf S 4dr Hatchback (electric DD)

Review

We almost bought a 2012 but waited and leased a 2013. We opted for the charger and rearview camera package and are glad we did. State (CA) and local air district rebates cut the already low three-year lease cost in half, making this an unbeatable bargain. We haven't driven our ICE car once in the 10 days since we got our Leaf S. This car does everything we need and is comfortable, easy to drive and costs less than 5 cents a mile for fuel. No problem keeping up with traffic, especially if we take it out of Eco mode. It also appears to have more range than the previous models. We only charge to 80% to save battery and can drive almost 70 miles in urban and suburban traffic.

Favorite Features

Dark interior and upholstery; fast charge package; quiet ride; comfort; backup camera; low cost of ownership and operation; Bluetooth; USB port for iPod. No emissions. No waiting in line for, or paying for, gas.

Suggested Improvements

An option for more range. I'd pay more for a bigger battery pack to go 120-150 miles. Also, DC quick charger infrastructure strategically located on highways to enable longer trips. These two things would make the Leaf a viable choice for one-car households.
