3. Nissan Leaf
The Nissan Leaf is a small electric car that is great for city or close range driving. The battery packs take an estimated 8 hours to fully charge and have an EPA estimated 102 mpge, which translates to roughly 84 miles of travel. Due to this, the Leaf isn’t built for long range commutes or road trips. The interior is luxurious; with leather seats and a well designed center console. All the displays are digital, and the gear selector is designed similar to a computer mouse. The suspension handles everything thrown at it, absorbing road imperfections like a champion, leading to a smooth ride. The steering is responsive and tight and the braking system stops on a dime.
