It is 54 miles RT, also should be able to charge for an hour on L2 while at work
I live outside of Philadelphia, and while it's not Boston, It gets cold here.
54 mile round trip should be easy.
Having said that, if 52 of those miles will be done at 80MPH, at 0 degrees, in a gale, you are going to get some range anxiety.
Real world driving around here, 75 miles is a no brainer.
I think a 54 mile commute is probably the perfect range for the leaf.
It gives you some wiggle room, some up your sleeve to go to lunch or pick up the dry cleaning.
Plugshare shows a BUNCH of chargers if you really have a problem, plus that MIT charger.
The 2013 has an optional 6.6 kw charger, which won't get you farther, just charge quicker.
Tony is correct however.
You should be able to get a better deal on a 2012.
$2500 0ff, if your price includes the $7500 already is not good.
Come down here, I'll get you a good deal.
It is fun to have NO IDEA what the price of gas did last week.
I'd do it, just make a better deal.
