Editor's Overview

With its digestible price and overall practicality, the 2014 Nissan Leaf is an appealing choice for buyers ready for an electric vehicle. Like other EVs, the Leaf's sub-100-mile range and hours-long recharge times won't work for everyone. For those who can make the compromises, this all-electric hatchback rewards with its ease of use and the fact it never needs gasoline.

It saves the user massive amounts of money by not having to worry about gas, but it still requires work.

I love driving an electric vehicle because of the money it saves me and the positive impact I can have on the environment by not contributing to carbon emissions. However, it is sometimes very challenging to get around without many charging stations in the area and with my battery life lasting only 90 miles.

- Anne S

I have driven it 15000 miles and have not spent one dollar on gas or oil changes.

I like that it is an electric car and I use it for quick trips around town and to drive to and from work. I am fortunate that my work provides chargers so every 2 or 3 days I am able to get a full charge. The only complaint is that it is a little older electric car so the range is not very big.

- todd c

The amazing 3. 5sv premium Nissan maxima.

The performance is amazing! Lots of power, drives great and smooth, 6 cylinder and great on gas on the highway, it is a big car on the inside and the outside has the lines that make the car appealing and it is a wide body car so it is look luxurious.
