Nissan LEAF Q&A

WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF OWNING A NISSAN LEAF?

Top Top JOEL E, NC

WOW. ONE THING? I HAVE LOTS OF REASONS TO LIKE IT.

It's fun to drive with all that torque. It's quiet. It's free to drive when I charge at work. But overall, my favorite thing has to be it's raison d'être. It simply doesn't use a drop of gas.

YOU FEEL A PART OF, IF NOT A LEADER, IN A REVOLUTION OF SORTS.

You know some who see you are envious. Others may be appreciative and still others are jealous when you blow their doors off when the light turns green!!!

NOT PAYING FOR GAS.

NEVER HAVING TO PUMP GAS!!!!

I would rather sit and wait for a charge at a nice clean charging station than have to pump gas for a couple of minutes at a stinky, dirty gas pump. I love the birds eye view camera. [*] I use that ALL the time.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE NISSAN LEAF IS THE COMPLETE PEACE I HAVE ABOUT MY PURCHASE.

That's funny, because so much EV talk these days is around 'anxiety', when in fact my experience can be summed up as relieving anxiety.

I LOVE SO MANY THINGS ABOUT THE CAR.

But number one is probably zero emission.

HOV LANES *

In the SF Bay Area, they are a must for the morning commute. It is a big reason I sold a Prius I owned outright to lease a LEAF.

Nissan Leaf Electric Dictionary High Occupancy Vehicle lane

High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes are traffic lanes restricted to carpools, transit buses, and electric vehicles. It doesn’t matter how many passengers you have, in the LEAF® every lane is your lane. [*]

CALIFORNIA HOV LANE ACCESS AS SINGLE DRIVER,

free parking at a lot of charge stations.

Top Top PETER B, CA

I DO FEEL A BIT PROUD THAT WE PICKED A CAR THAT GENERATES LESS AIR POLLUTION THAN THE GAS CARS.

Also glad that I might be able to inspire someone else to try an EV!

Top Top JOEL E, NC

WE HAVE RESERVED PARKING FOR EVS AT WORK.

I've enjoyed other good parking spaces and free charging in some nearby cities.

Top Top ADAM P, CA

BEST THING EVER IS FREE PARKING IN ALL CITY LOTS.

I HAVE A SOLO CAR POOL STICKER BUT DON'T USE THE FREEWAY MUCH IN THE LEAF.

I do use free public EV charging once in a while (some of the stores I shop at have free charging). But my favorite EV perk is the quiet driving and no need to stop at gas stations!
