"Dating all the way back to the dawn of this decade, the groundbreaking and ever-evolving LEAF has received several upgrades and enhancements over the years." wrote the Kelley Blue Book evaluation team.

Nissan is also credited from bringing affordable electric vehicles to a wide consumer audience. "When the Nissan LEAF debuted in 2011, it brought electric vehicles to the masses. Easy to drive, whisper-quiet, respectable cargo capacity thanks to its hatchback design and refueling that's as easy as plugging in a power cord, the LEAF has moved nearly a quarter-million units worldwide, making it the best-selling EV yet." wrote Kelley Blue Book evaluation team. 

The LEAF has taken the electric car era by storm being efficient, affordable and stylish. Keeping in mind that these vehicles also come with a $7,500 eligible federal tax credit - in addition to potential state and local incentives, can bring the net price of them to below $30,000. 100-mile plus range, the 2017 LEAF can be quick-charged to 80 percent (from the low battery warning) in about 30 minutes.

Charging on a home charging system is estimated to take about six hours with the 6.6 kW on-board charger. Personal testimonies from LEAF owners in 2012 conclude that overnight charging at the home port will have you on your way out the door every morning, with no worries.
