I have some big news… I got a Nissan Leaf! I would’ve told you all earlier, but I’ve been so busy driving it around that I’ve hardly had time to even sit at the computer lately. But I just had to take a moment to show you all my new baby!
For those of you who haven’t heard, the Nissan Leaf is a 100% electric car, and my Honey and I have been on the waiting list for a year and a half, just dying to get behind the wheel. We finally got one a couple weeks ago, and it’s everything we hoped it would be.
I absolutely love telling people about this car, and here are answers to the three questions almost everyone asks:
- It’s 100% electric, and doesn’t take gasoline at all. There is no tank!
- It can go about 100 miles on a single charge.
- I can charge it at any regular household outlet, and can top it off at any time. I can charge it even faster with an optional 240V charger (which we just purchased).
The best thing about this car is that it’s SO quiet that you can hardly even hear it. In fact, most people don’t even believe me when I tell them it’s running, because it hardly makes a sound. The other best thing is that it’s so smooth, quick, and responsive that it’s a joy to ride. The other other best thing is that it’s completely decked out inside with bells and whistles. And the OTHER other other best thing is that I haven’t been to a gas station in over two weeks!
If any of you are curious about this car or are thinking about getting one, feel free to leave me a comment. I love this car and I’m more than happy to answer any questions you’ve got!
