Editor's Overview

With its reasonable price and day-to-day practicality, the 2015 Nissan Leaf remains an appealing choice for buyers ready to go electric and ditch the gas pump. With fewer than 100 miles per charge and several hours to recharge, an EV like the Nissan Leaf isn't for everyone, but it's easy to live with if it fits your lifestyle.

You don't have to make trips to or stops at the gas station.

Our vehicle is an electric vehicle, I love not having to go to the gas station. It is a great vehicle for around town, but we are limited to how far we can drive at a time. In Las Vegas, where we bought it, it was great. Here in Florida, everything is more spread out and we can't get to some things.

It is a fully electric car, no gas is needed.

It is full electric vehicle. Perfect for driving locally to and from work everyday. Cannot drive it very far or otherwise will have to charge it. Saves on paying for gas. Need to charge it everyday in order to be able to use it for work because does not have a very large battery capacity.

Nissan leaf is great for winter.

The leaf is amazing! I used to spend $600 per month in gas; now I spend none. I also love the heated seats and steering wheel. My daughter loves the heated back seats as well. It has great cargo space with the back seats folded down. My service dog also enjoys the heated seats.
