Nissan Leaf all electric
The Nissan Leaf can go about 100 miles (although less in very hot or very cold weather) and it's about the same size as typical compact car. The car will have a few charging options, including a high-speed DC port for commercial charging spots that can charge the car in about half an hour. Otherwise, full charging will take either 16 to 18 hours with a regular 120-volt outlet, or about 8 hours with 240-volt charger. Price is about $33,000 but rebates and incentives can bring that closer to $25,000. It will only be made available next year in certain areas in the U.S. which are investing in charging infrastructure.
