Starting price (including destination fee): $32,535
EV range: 150 miles
An EV that outdistances its competitors and costs less compared to rest? This is the Leaf’s formula, and it is a hard one to resist.
With 150 miles of range in its affordable base trim (an optional larger battery-pack version, the Leaf Plus, can travel up to 226 miles), the Nissan offers useful distance and could be the second-least expensive car in the class. It’s also quick to accelerate and handles well. Limited storage and back seats that don’t fold flat are our only gripes.
