Most Significant Car Of It's Time — I have driven the 2012 LEAF SL several times and my immediate impression is WOW, it's extremely smooth on the road, handles exceedingly well and has among the most comfortable front and back seats in the entire mid-size market. It's acceleration is rapid and impressive. With the typical US household driving 12,000 miles per year, or about 35 miles per day, the range anxiety talked a lot about is far fetched, based on hard data. Within a few years, there will be charging ports everywhere. The LEAF has the charger inside and is a great 2nd car if you need to travel far distances often, or can be the most fuel efficient single car you can buy. Requires no maintenance costs associated with ICE vehicles (internal combustion engines), and with average US driving habits, should cost you about $30-$40 a month to fuel up. The LEAF requires Voltage Fuel, which is electricity, widely abundant, and incredibly cheap. Bottom line is that it's a real car, goes fast, is roomy, and will save you $1,000's of dollars every year you own it. Say bye-bye to the gas station if you own this car. Recommend you lease for now, and you for sure get the $7500 tax credit which is used as lease cash.
