2011 Nissan Leaf
The 2011 Nissan Leaf isn't the first all-electric car, but none before it have been as relevant to Joe Carbuyer. Launching alongside the pricier Chevy Volt, the Nissan Leaf's rallying cries are "100% electric" and "zero emissions" - claims the gas generator-equipped Volt can't make. The Leaf is also roomier than the Volt, offers seating for five instead of four, and boasts double the all-electric range at an EPA-estimated 73 miles (Volt can go 379 miles with a full charge and full tank of gas). The fact that our time in the Leaf has left us wishing for a little more lumbar support is a testament to just how livable we've found it overall.
