Kid turned sixteen this month so figured an electric car with 50 miles of range would keep me from worrying, plus not having the extra fuel bill. We got a Ford Lightning last year and liked it so much we sold all our diesel rigs and got my wife a nissan ariya last summer. Grizzl-e charger in the garage. Extension cord to the street for the kid's leaf. We save about $400/month in fuel, offset by about $100/month increased power bill.

The leaf is in beautiful condition, but only 53% SoH per LeafSpyPro. $3500 after 30% discount which seems high but no other options where we live in rural Oregon. Was able to tow it home 120 miles with the Lightning.

Interested in upgrading to a 40kwh battery eventually, but this gets him to school, work, and grandma's just fine. Happy to have found a helpful community of leaf owners!

Even better, if they get stranded somewhere with no charge, you can bring the lightning out with a portable EVSE to charge it back up. :cool:
