The Leaf has a 107-mile range.
In Silicon Valley, electric vehicles may not be big news anymore, but we still enjoyed our week with the 2016 Nissan Leaf SL. The car is actually in its second generation of design and development after six years on the road.
The news is that a practical vehicle capable of carrying four adults and a week’s worth of groceries, which can be leased for a price starting at $199 per month, can now provide more than 100 miles of validated cruising range on an overnight charge. That’s more than enough for a commute in and out of the city and a few errands at the end of the day.
