After years of being interested in the Leaf, test driving at the drive electric tour in the Seattle area in November 2010, test driving a bunch more, attending a SF BayLEAFs meeting where Kadota-san, Mark Perry and others were present, I FINALLY have one!
I started leasing a blue '13 Leaf SV w/QC and premium package today (2 years/12K miles per year). I wanted the light interior as I really don't like the black interior. Yeah yeah, I know the light interior gets dirty easily. Oh well. I wish Nissan offered something something at sort of the halfway mark in terms of darkness. I think my former 02 Maxima GXE's grey interior was fine.
Most of my drive home was on the highway (101 then 85). I like the ride. It's much better than my Prius and was so quiet. I can see why DaveinOlyWA said that his Prius (he had a Gen 3 last, I still have my Gen 2) feels like a noisy rattletrap in comparison.
I have a LOT of reading and learning ahead of time. The nav system seems somewhat complex is quite different than Toyota's systems.
The free L2 J1772 charging at work is a big plus. I will hardly ever charge at home.
