GUIDE TO GREEN CARS, Summer 2012

Cantelow Nissan Leaf 

Nissan Leaf

We absolutely love the Leaf! We use it for 95 percent of our driving even though we live in a hilly, rural area. This electric car has exceptionally good handling and fast pickup. It’s especially fun if you zoom around in “drive mode.” The Nissan Leaf may seem expensive at first, but it doesn’t cost that much more than the average new car and it is significantly cheaper to operate year after year.
