Love, love, love our Leaf. It's fun to drive and it gets more attention than an expensive sports car as you slide silently by people.
To answer the question about how much it costs to charge, it depends on your rate plan. I'm on AEP's time advantage plan, and charging my Leaf at night costs less than $1, and closer to 50 cents on most days, since we only use it for my wife's commuter car during the week. That means we drive the car all month for around $15.
We are currently installing 15kW of solar, so soon it will cost us nothing to drive the car. The new Ford Focus Electric will come with a special offer from Sunpower to install a 6kW system for $10K. Brilliant!Sep 27, 2011
