Well...for lots of good reasons...We traded in an awesome Nissan 4x4 for the "World Car"...the 100% (thats right...100%) Electric Nissan LEAF...
Just got it yesterday...already super excited!
Lots of very cool features...too many really to list...basics:
About 75 miles on a full charge. Some days I'll get more..some days less depending on several key driving factors and time of year.
My estimated fuel savings is $200 per month - Net the cost of charging - $165 savings monthly!
Its a lease, so ALL major components are all warranty items. Just rotate the tires and check the computer every 7500 miles.
All the techie gadgets you need and lots more you likely don't...but super Safe too!
Family of (5) fits fine...again...if I want to go for a family trip farther away...park it and get a free rental...
Ride in HOV Lane as a soloist!
It is a bit of an daily adjustment (I won't say hassle yet) to realize you need a plan to Charge daily (at home or on the growing amount of available EV stations). Most of the charges are free still and should be for some time. Only the Level 3 fast charges cost. If you view charging the same as your cell phone...you just get used to it!
The "range anxiety" is minimal so far...and if you go to the dealer I used...you get (22) days per year of FREE gas vehicles for longer trips or whatever need. Plenty of options there.
I will miss the 4x4...but honestly..even after just one day...not that much.
Goodbye gas stations...see you around town.
*Yes...I still have another gas vehicle...so I'm not totally a greenie ;)
