What’s great about the new 2013 Nissan leaf is it’s manufactured here in the US at the Smryna, TN plant and has a host of improved features, like longer range, faster charging, leather seat options, etc. Oh yeah, and it’s cheaper! In California for example you could get a new one for under $20k. Driving electric costs so much less than gas and there is nearly zero regular maintenance. Go check it out @ Nissan.
