Default [C&D] 2011 Nissan Leaf SL - Long-Term Road Test Wrap-Up

2011 Nissan Leaf SL Long-Term Road Test
Quote:
Fear. The Nissan Leaf thrives on it. Sure, it projects a friendly, green image—the cute chime at startup, the “Zero Emissions” badge on the back, the way it quietly breezes past gas stations—but the car’s main reason for existence, the “why” explaining this new “what,” is that we’re afraid we’ll soon run out of petroleum. (At least some of us are.) And Nissan was afraid it wouldn’t be seen as an innovator. Thus we have our first mass-market electric car, being rolled out in small doses across the country.
