2015 Nissan Leaf SL Premium hatchback.
This is an all electric vehicle (EV).
The Nissan Leaf is the first EV model to go over one billion miles. This is your chance to drive an EV before considering buying one. This vehicle is for sale for $11,730 cash. You may deduct your entire rental fee.
With no engine noise, you can hear conversation, music, or surroundings much better.
It has an AZ cloud plate, so you can use AZ HOV lanes with only the driver in the car.
Acceleration and handling are amazing. Use the ECO mode to tone it down by requiring a heavier push on the pedal to get full acceleration. Be careful your first few weeks driving an EV, especially around turns and parking lot curbs, because it is very easy to accelerate too fast.
Range: About 50 miles.
This is on a freeway at 64 mph, flat road, no wind.
Whatever the battery % is, you can go about half that many miles if you baby the accelerator a little.
Going slower, you will get longer range.
Going faster, you will get shorter range.
In a critical regular application, do a test drive, first, in order to see how much the battery goes down and if you will be able to do that drive regularly.
Always leave at least 10% extra for unforeseen circumstances. Always charge above 90% before traveling...

After you check out the car, we will stay on hand for up to 60 minutes as you need to learn differences in driving an EV.

To save you from registering for EV fuel accounts, we let you use ours. And as long as you follow some reasonable rules, we will waive and cover all fuel charges.
