While Zuck is busy with the new Meesaging system, Nissan is pushing around fresh Leaves (:-)).
It seems they'd even give one out free, to a social geek of course ...

So whoever is "hot" for a Leaf, should hurry, participate in one of the especially organized events and do his/her best to get the hands on a fresh "green" Leaf

Real-world gas equivalent MPG for the Leaf are:

100MPG, 110MPG, 123MPG & 138MPG. Stuff the EV haters. EVs rule with 90+% efficiencies. Internal combustion engines(ICE) can't get 30%.

If the Leaf develops a battery pack with 200 mile range, I'm buying. Not that I need the 200mile range. But the 200mile range allows for stopping charging before full charge is reached & allows slower draining of the battery pack as one drives, both with reduce longevity. With an eye toward longevity, the battery packs should last well past 100,000 miles.

At 138MPG with careful driving, a long life battery pack will be assured.... lead footers need not apply.

Electric motors are elegantly smooth, smokeless, odorless, & quiet, giving a motion unparalleled by ICE. What ICE couldn't obtain in 100+years of development, electric motors have always had.

Correction:

'both with reduce', should be,
'both which reduce'.
