    More that I thought, Peppier that believed.

    Our 2017 Leaf SL excels in many ways including peppy performance, amazingly low operating costs and a quiet, dignified ride. The range of the vehicle has been around 120 miles, which is greater than advertised. With federal and state tax incentives, a big discount offered by our local utility and our dealer, we paid about 60% of the sticker price. With our trade in of of 2010 CRV, our out of pocket expense was less that $10K. The Bose sound system is excellent, the seating comfort is better than expected and the handling is solid. But the energy savings are off the charts. In one month we drove 581 miles and it cost us just $14.00 in electricity counting a few free "fill ups" from nearby stations. We are extremely pleased with the Leaf knowing we are not spewing exhaust into the environment. The newer model has more range, safety features and better styling but we’ll stick with our older model. So far, no problems at all!

    If all you need is a second car for a short commuting this can’t be beat. If you think you are going to be able to use it for more than that you will most likely have some anxious moments ahead. Owning an EV is like adding a new hobby that is centered on learning everything there is about lithium ion batteries. I may get over this phase soon and fall into a normal groove but that’s what it feels like right now.

    Too Few Charging Stations

    The Leaf is a well made car and delivers on everything it claims to. The problem is the power source. There are just not enough places to charge the vehicle and when you do find one it takes several hours to charge. It is just not worth it especially when you figure in weather conditions and highway driving both of which drasticly affect your mileage.

    You will never go back to a gas vehicle once you have driven an EV! I am upgrading to a 2022!
