2011 Nissan LEAF

Love it!
It may be a little early to be a LEAF owner as there are very few charging stations available as of 2012, but for the day-to-day use of a professional couple who share a car and rive less than 75km round trip on any given day, this car is perfect.

Far more technology is included than any other at the same price point.

I love this car.

2012 Nissan LEAF

Electric car - The future of in-city travel
The look of a compact with the interior and comfort of an high-end vehicle. This car is perfect for in-city travels. The one I drive comes full equipped with all the high-end gadgets such as intelligent key, onboard computer (with GPS), side sensors, backup camera, etc. The only downside I find is the low recharge rate from standard electric outlet (close to 24 hours), the limited range (140KM at most). But a recharge at an high powered electric station takes about 8 hours. And the acceleration is a bit to desired when running in economy mode. It's a great car for technology lovers who live close to the work place and only need a car once in a while. I would recommend renting more than buyying until the electric car support network is better developed in your region.

2012 Nissan LEAF

Electric car, the future of in-city transportation
It's a futuristic car with the look of an economy car and the comfort and technology of a luxury one without the price tag. The version I drive come full equipped with on-board computer, rear camera view, side and front proximity sensors. Speed warning, etc, blue tooth connection for phone call and MP3 playing. The vehicule is totally silent. The only downside is the autonomy which is very limited (140KM) at most. Therefore, it's not a car useful for out-of-city outings. It's acceleration, in economy mode, is also to be desired. Maybe not a car to buy but certainlty a car to rent for city travel.
