Personally, the only electric car I'd consider is Tesla because their batteries have a range close to 300 miles. The Leaf only has a real world range of 60 or so. Ok if you are close by everything and never go on a long trip.
I wish I had the money to buy a Tesla they look like great cars. According to the website the 60KWH battery goes 208 to 230 on one charge and the 85KWH goes 265 to 300 on one charge. My problem is the 60KWH is $62,400 and the 85 KWH is $72,400 and those prices are after the $7,500 Federal tax credit. So unless everyone wants to donate to my new car. I can't afford that. I will use the car to travel to Los Angeles so an all electric car isn't going to work for me. I will have to go with a hybrid electric/gas car.
