I will be writing a full test drive review for publication in Triple Pundit. But here’s a quick summary on why you should consider the Nissan Leaf.
First, it is a GREAT car for daily commuting and running around town. This car is quick. Punch the accelerator and you will be pushed back into your seat from the rapid acceleration. I took onto the freeway and quickly got to 70 miles per hour. No need to worry about keeping up with traffic in this machine.
As importantly for urban traffic the Nissan Leaf is easy to turn and park. The turning radius makes a U-turn a snap. My Leaf had a back up camera displayed on the large screen located in the center of the dash board. This made backing up much safer and parallel parking a snap.
Here’s the best part for those of us on a budget. ZERO trips to the gasoline pump. I drove the Leaf Friday, Saturday and Sunday on ONE partial recharge that cost a dollar. I figured I saved $10 compared to buying a comparable amount of gasoline!
The Leaf is all that Nissan represents. It is a great urban commuter, easy to drive, carries all that you will need to carry with zero tailpipe emissions and ZERO gasoline expense.
