We have markets because different people have different preferences — we demand a variety of options. (Oh yeah, and we fought some wars and stuff….) But unless you have quite a bit more money to dish out on your car (everyone knows you’d buy a Tesla if you did), it’s pretty clear that the Nissan Leaf currently offers the best package for a 100% electric car in the US. Naturally, there are some exceptions — you may prefer or need some of the features other EVs offer — but all in all, the Leaf has a very low price, good range, and great fuel economy.
