2011 Nissan Leaf Summary


The ordering window for a Nissan Leaf has been open since August 31, with a $99 deposit required, and deliveries in the U.S. will start in December. With an average operating cost of only about 2.6 cents per mile versus more than 12 cents for a comparable gasoline car capable of 25 mpg, near-zero maintenance costs, and enough juice onboard to get most people where they need to go and back without worry, the Leaf would be a good deal without all the incentives, rebates and refunds, but, when those are all factored in, the Leaf looks like a very good deal indeed for the American family commuter.
