Possibly buying a 2019 Leaf

Overnight test drive to see if my wife likes it. Any thoughts from Oppo?

My test drive thoughts are mostly positive. I think it’s overpriced compared to an equivalent gas car. The NVH though, is Lexus good. In fact, it compares very well vs the ES350 I recently rode in. Driving character is very good. Good enough handling and Very Good acceleration. Honestly, I really enjoyed driving it, even as a fun car.

UPDATE: She likes it, but we'll be checking out a Niro plug-in tomorrow. 10k cheaper and no range anxiety, but normal maintenance and filling it with gas, which she wanted to get away from. Kona EV is on my list to show her, but it's only available in Oregon! Luckily, we could make the drive back home on a single charge.
