Wow! No Gas, All Electric Nissan LEAF

Hey Yall!  Last week, my automobile group had their monthly luncheon meeting at Atlanta Contemporary, with Nissan as a sponsor sharing with us about their new 2016 Nissan LEAF, the world's most popular and successful EV vehicle.

There have been times I can't make it to the monthly meetings, but when I saw that Nissan was hosting, I wanted to make sure to be there since I have never reviewed their cars before.

I don't know much about Nissan cars. However, I'm familiar with their full-size luxury vehicle, the Maxima because Mr. M rented it for a road trip with his brother to Florida several years back, he thought the car was very impressive, sleek, cutting-edge, all that good stuff.  Boo to him for leaving us behind while riding the lap of luxury to the sunshine state.  It seems he always goes on trips without the girls and I.  Jerk!

At the luncheon, I stepped inside an art gallery, Atlanta Contemporary I never even heard of the place before, and neither did some of my auto group colleagues.  I found out that the art gallery is free, they go by donations, so if you're ever in Atlanta check the place out and see all the local art, created by local Atlanta artist.

Parked inside the gallery was the Nissan LEAF.  I did a walk around and took a look inside.  I thought the car looked nice.  To me, I feel I would see mostly millennials driving it, singles, and maybe even seniors.  But with me having a family, not enough space for us, we need our leg room and a lot of storage.

My group and I gathered to our seats, had a delicious southern cuisine that was buffet style, and we mixed and mingled with each other sharing about our businesses and passing out business cards.

After we had finished up lunch and dessert, a spokesperson from Nissan shared a bit about the Nissan LEAF.

What I learned about this peppy little car it's all electric, 30kWh lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery with a 107-mile range and complementary charging for two years.

I think being all electric is pretty impressive; this makes a good car for commuting.  But with me always on road trips, I would be concerned about finding charging stations during my travels.  Nissan is currently working on a longer mile range battery. There are other auto brands with electric cars, and Nissan want to make sure to stay competitive while being ahead of the pack.

There wasn't a test drive for us during this luncheon, so I'm not sure how well this car drives, but judging by seeing it on the road a lot, it must be a valuable car to have, plus good for the environment since it doesn't pollute the air.

The starting price of the Leaf is $29,010, not bad.  I think that's a good starting price.

What are your thoughts about electric cars?


  1. I don't drive a whole lot so I think an electric car would be great for me. I've noticed their are more charging stations available so that would be a plus. I also don't like getting gas so that would be another bonus for me.

  2. I am considering an electric car. I finally took the steps to get my permit and by next month I should have my l's, which means car shopping. Hybrids are definitely something that I have my eye on and the price for this isn't bad at all.

  3. This sounds awesome.And the car looks beautiful and comfortable too...

  4. I'd be interested in a test drive! Nice event! #productreview

  5. Wow!! I always wanted to try one of those electric cars. It looks really nice too. Speaking of looked nice, I want that plate.

  6. We need a group like that here! Ooh, I hope you get to review one. I'd like to see how it runs.
