So, thinking about a new car, the Leaf is very tempting, especially with the $5,000 tax credit offered in CA (where we might be moving).
It's always a gamble to buy something that's brand new; no comprehensive, unbiased, reviews out yet.
But it seems really cool:
"The Nissan Leaf is an all-electric car, so it doesn't release emissions as it drives. It has seating for five. The Nissan Leaf is a four-door hatchback. The 2011 Nissan Leaf will be available as the base SV trim and the upgraded SL trim. The SV will come with standard features like smart phone connectivity, which will allow owners to regulate the charging of the Nissan Leaf from their cell phones, navigation, Sirius/XM satellite radio and Bluetooth."
