Overall:

Car OK, but range is only 75 miles. Ill need a 2019 Plus with 200 mile range. Waiting for a 2019 Plus at a good price. Might consider a PHEV with a 50 mile EV capability, but I dont think there are many available.

2016 Nissan LEAF SV Review
Guru9ZP51J says:
awesome family car, especially as a second car. it was great as our only car however (the 2013 version but they’re almost identical). especially if u know u can live with the range, or if u don’t mind renting or figuring out another way to get places that are beyond its range — this car is fun, but it ain’t a road tripper!

Power Ranked 2016 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT FWD better.
"the spark feels like a performance car. the leaf feels like a higher performance family car. "
Looks/Style Ranked 2016 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT FWD better.
"the leaf is cute, but spark is objectively much funner and cuter looking 😊"
Front Seats Ranked 2016 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT FWD worse.
"more legroom, more comfortable "
Back Seats Ranked 2016 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT FWD worse.
"the leaf seats 3 in the back. the spark only seats 4. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2016 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT FWD worse.
"the leaf has tons more cargo space "
Family Car Ranked 2016 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT FWD worse.
"more cargo volume, better range, more comfortable interior "
Value Ranked 2016 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT FWD better.
"given how cheap the sparks ev are, and their level of performance compared w/ the leaf, the spark offers way more value for me "
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT FWD better.
"overall, the spark EV has better performance, cuter looks, Significantly more robust battery management, which means the battery should last much longer without losing a significant amount of capacity (ie driving range). but most importantly to me the spark is a much better drivers car than the leaf. Since I am interested in cars that are fun to drive and are powered by electrons, on the used market the spark is one of the best deals and for me offers much more value than the first generation leaf. but they’re both awesome cars!"

This is the currently the best EV you can get for the price. Nissan still has the $7500 federal tax credit and it makes a big difference in the total you pay. Almost as good as the VW eGolf but ist... Read More
