Find out what real Nissan LEAF owners are saying about the thrill of 100% electric driving.
WHAT’S IT LIKE TO DRIVE THE NISSAN LEAF?
It’s like driving a fast cloud.
~Anne P., Virginia
Saving money, a blast to drive. I feel like a genius.
~Lou G., USA
HOW FAR DO YOU GO IN A DAY?
58 miles a day for work, 24 or more days out of the month. And there are no plugs or chargers at my work.
~Adam P., California
HOW DO YOU CHARGE A NISSAN LEAF?
I basically plug it in at home, just like a toaster. And it only costs me about $2.50 in electricity to drive 100 miles. The most common response is “WOW!”.
~Jeanne H., Texas
ARE THERE ANY WAYS TO EXTEND YOUR RANGE?
I put the car in ECO and use the B mode if I know I'm going to be pushing the range on the car. Just those built-in tools work well enough for me, so long as I'm mindful to actually use the regenerative braking as much as possible.
~John M., Ohio
WHAT IS YOUR CHARGING ROUTINE?
I charge to 100% every day. I commute 52 miles round trip to work. I will usually plug-in when I get home for an hour or two just in case I need to run some errands. We use the LEAF to run kids to practice, games, or do grocery shopping.
~David N., Illinois
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO DRIVE AN ELECTRIC CAR?
My father was born in 1919. He saw cars come of age. I saw the chance to do the same with electric vehicles.
~Bruce M., Indiana
I want to sustain both nature, and my joy of driving.
~Wasei H., Japan
IS THE NISSAN LEAF A GOOD CAR FOR A FAMILY?
Absolutely. I pick up my daughter and one of her classmates at school most days, and all of their backpacks and binders can fit in the storage area, along with a full load of groceries. Another plus is that my 10-year-old daughter takes tremendous pride in telling friends that her family has an all-electric car. Children today are incredibly aware of all things green, and it’s great to hear her friends give our LEAF a rating of “Awesome!”
~Tom W., Tennessee
HOW IS DRIVING A QUIET CAR DIFFERENT?
I can listen to the birds, or talk to my neighbour in traffic.
~Jeffrey L., UK
Other cars seem so noisy now.
~Yoichi S., Japan
So quiet, we use our inside voices.
~John M., USA
IS THE NISSAN LEAF A FAST CAR?
It’s cheeky at the traffic light Grand Prix.
~Paul M., UK
Like a rollercoaster off the line.
~Daniel W., USA
WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF OWNING A NISSAN LEAF?
I’m part of a revolution (of sorts).
~Keith L., California
I like being among the pioneers.
~Anne Sophie D., France
