I mean, the Leaf isn’t exactly a pretty car. In fact, its kinda bad. Actually, it’s pretty ugly.
Actually, its hideous.
But, entice the thought if only for long enough to scroll to the comments and express your anger.
This is a new, not titled,
visual monstrosity 2017 Leaf discounted to $21,350. New, as in, 3yr/36,000mi basic warranty, 5yr/60,000mi powertrain warranty, but most importantly: 8 year 100,000mi battery replacement warranty. Granted, this is if the battery loses 9 bars of capacity or more (on a 12 bar scale.)
Pending that your employer can share an outlet or install an EV charging station for a tax break, it could be charged for little to nothing.
So, if you’re still here, that’s $12,500 in tax returns for next year. Subtract this from the cost of the
poo on wheels car and we’re at $8850.
Pros: Since its not a moto, the better half can also operate it. Since it has a roof, it’s good for 12-month operation. It has four seats, but I’d be hard pressed to find another two humans that would be OK being seen in it. Maybe a doggo?
Cons: Nissan Leaf.
Would you drive one for about $1-3 per 100 miles of travel and $8850 + TTL? If it proves to be just the worst thing on pavement, it could probably be sold in a year for around $9k, so that would be a wash.
