I made this site to give you a brief introduction to the 100% Electric Nissan LEAF, No GAS whatsoever!
The LEAF costs me $37.67 in Electric & Maintenance to drive 1000 miles a month.
(that's only 3.77 cents per mile. Most gas burning cars are 12 to 44 cents per mile)
(My Electric bill went up $31.00 a month)
I used to spend $200 to $300 a month in gasoline, oil changes and other maintenance.
The Nissan LEAF is my Only Car!
(Since April of 2013)
Currently there are 42 Plug-IN Cars for Lease or Purchase.
(more are being introduced every month)
* There are two types:
PHEV = Plug-IN Hybrid Electric Vehicle (Electric & Gasoline)
BEV = Battery Electric Vehicle (100% Electric, No Gasoline)
A PHEV is a good vehicle if you are not sure you can function without Gasoline.
Generally you would Plug-IN at home and maybe at work and by doing so you could
achieve 45 to 95MPG depending on the Vehicle and the distance you drive. But, a PHEV
has a Gas tank as well. So, If the Electricity runs out you will continue with just Gas.
A BEV will give you the most cost savings, No GAS ever again. No OIL Changes
Very little maintenance. Depending on current Gas Prices you can achieve 120MPG or better.
* (PHEV Types:
There are many different types of PHEV's. Most let you control the way you use the Electric charge and/or the gasoline depending where you are driving. All are designed to give you the best MPG.)
I'm sure we'll see almost every class of vehicles as EV's
by 2019. So full sized SUV's, Electric Pickup Trucks,
Electric Semi Tractor Trailers, School buses, Ambulances,
Mini-Vans, Electric JEEPS, Scooters, etc.
How does an Electric Car work ? - Watch this video:
Every single night I plug the LEAF in on my driveway to a
220V 30Amp plug and it charges back up to Full in 2 hours.
The slower you drive the more range you will get, If you drive 25MPH
all day long you'll get 120 miles range. If you drive 85MPH on the
Turnpike you'll get around 55 miles range. I drive 60 to 65MPH on
the NJ Parkway and I can get 85 miles.
In the winter you get less range, at 32 degrees I do not notice any
change in range, at 20 degrees I notice around a 10% drop and at 4
degrees I noticed around 15% drop in range. The LEAF Loves 85 degrees
I get the most range at 85 degrees.
I can drive in the HOV lanes by myself and EZPASS gives
me a 10% discount on Tolls in NY & NJ! :)
Originally I bought the LEAF to save money on my commute but
If I were to buy another EV now it would be because they are so much
Fun to drive. An Electric Car has 100% of their power right off the line
You do not need to wait to 6000RPM like a Gas Engine to get all of your
Power. There is something exhilarating about driving a quick and peppy
Car that makes no noise whatsoever.
I will NEVER drive a Gas Burning car again!!!
I am 49 years old and this is the First Car that I truly LOVE driving!!!
It is SO MUCH FUN to Drive Electric!!! :)
The #NissanLEAF is a first generation EV and so the range is limited.
There are many other EV's out there now and coming out in the near future.
In Early 2017 the Chevy #BOLTEV is coming and it will do 238 miles per
charge. In Early 2019 the #TeslaModel3 is coming and it will do at least
215 miles range and start at a cost of $35,000. Elon Musk has stated
that when you can buy the Model 3 it will have more Standard features
than any other car that costs $35,000 and it will have more storage
Space because it will have a Trunk and a Frunk!
I've made some #evBumperStickers to show People who are driving behind
me that I have Pre-ordered a #Model3 and you can see these #BumperStickers
by scrolling to the bottom of this page! Thanks for stopping by!
