The Leaf was the first mass-produced electric car on the road. There was a lot to love about the original car, the fact that it was affordable for an EV was the main selling point. The modern Leaf has evolved a lot, and it still offers one of the best bargains on the EV market right now (via Car & Driver).
The estimated range of 226 miles on a single charge is great for handling business in town or going for a short trip. The hatchback design means there’s plenty of cargo room in the back, and the four-door design makes taking passengers a breeze. The Leaf will continue to break the mold of what an affordable EV should be.
