Not if the Leaf continues to depreciate at a rate like smkettner saw!
Lack of QC is annoying but not a deal breaker with the longer range the RAV4 offers.
Have no fear, Tony's working on it! Also, the funny thing I've come to think about QC is that while the Leaf has it, it's pretty much useless for it. The battery's just too small - if you're trying to make a long drive the ratio of charge time to drive time is simply too high. QC would be awesome in the Rav though, since the range is just enough to actually take some road trips.
