Interesting thread ...
Leaf is our split commuter car for my wife and I and our weekend errand car--3,800 miles (5 months usage)
'09 VW Routan SEL is 'my' second 'primary' car (for insurance purposes)--23,000 miles
'08 smart fortwo passion coupe designated as my son's commuter car--34,000 miles
'99 Mazda Miata spring, summer, fall swap car with the wife--58,000 miles
In the midwest rust belt, the Miata gets stored anytime there is salt on the roads and still looks great because of it, but over the years the ride isn't all that great as we've gotten older so will eventually be replaced by a more cruiser oriented roadster (have a new gen Z4 ('09 and up) in mind but need to wait for the son to go on his own insurance). The Routan is still needed from time to time and it's our designated long trip car; ride is quite nice and you never have to worry about 'if it will fit' --- it simply does whatever it is! Recently needed to take two massive loads of old PC's for rehab & donation and was simply amazed at how much the thing can hold. No question the LEAF is our primary 'go to' car much more than the car it replaced (an '06 Mazda3 GT hatch) as it so much more quiet and rides better as well as the almost zero cost to run, etc. As we have three drivers all needing to go different directions at different times, etc. we could probably get down to three cars instead of four but having the flexibility of something bigger and longer range will always be a top concern -- I did some research on renting for long trips or using the Home Depot / Menards option for short term truck rental and we think the best option would be a plug-in hybrid utility type vehicle once more (or any) choices come out. Something flexible enough to run short runs on EV power only but also have the range (as well as comfortable ride) on longer trips --- as gas prices go up and down, I'm always reminded when I need to gas up the Routan (highest was $66 not too long ago) but as three seasons out the year its getting driven only when we really need it we're probably OK until other options really come to market. Have seen that you can pre-order the Ford C-Max hybrid (not plug in, that comes later) but would like to see some real world tests and it may or may not be 'big' enough, already road tested a Prius V 'wagon' and while it has decent space the fit and finish wasn't all that great for the price they wanted (was a fully loaded '5') as well as the ride was just OK (again as compared to a much bigger Routan so perhaps not a fair comparison). As with others I think our possible usage of the LEAF is way up to over 95% of annual mileage possible but we'll see how it goes.
