We have for sale a very clean 2012 Nissan Leaf SL with only 28,000 miles. This is a Full Electric Vehicle with a 24 Kwh Battery Pack. This give the car a range up to 84 miles on a single charge. The car runs and drives like new. The battery has 10 of the original 12 bars meaning it has around 80% battery capacity left. The car comes with the standard 110v house charger and carrying bag. New this car would have cost over $35,000!
This car is completely loaded with Heated Steering Wheel, Heat Front/Rear Seats, Infotainment Center, Navigation, Backup Camera, USB/AUX/CD/Bluetooth Radio, Steering Wheel Audio Controls, Cruise Control, Digital Climate Control, Power Windows, Auto Dim Mirror, Push Button Keyless Start, Proximity Key, LED Headlights, Fog Lights, Cargo Cover, Factory Floor Mats, Alloy Wheels, and Solar Panel.
I'll break down some of these features and what they do.
Proximity Key lets you unlock the car allows you to unlock the car without taking the key out. All you have to do is push a little button on the door handle and the car will unlock. Push Button Start lets you start the car with a push of a button if you have the key inside the car.
The LED Headlight can be get to turn on and off automatically and also have a dial inside the car to aim the Headlight up and down. The car has 3 different height settings for the Headlights.
The Solar Panel is mounted on the rear spoiler above the hatch and recharges the normal car battery that controls most of the interior electronics.
You can set the car up to run the Heater or the A/C before you leave. In the settings you just tell the car what the normal time you leave is and it will get the interior a comfortable temperature. This is a basically like remote start but you don't have to remember to do it and it can be done inside your garage with out having to open the door since this does not have a gas engine.
The Infotainment Center has many different features. GPS Navigation is just like any other Nav system other then this one tells you where some public E.V. Chargers are at. Backup Camera has line that move to help you park straight and it beeps when you get close to something. The Digital Climate Control is all on the main screen. Theres a page that tells you how much power your car is using and how far you can go on the charge. The Radio is like any other radio and the Bluetooth pairs with your phone right when you get in. It also does Hands Free Calling.
I personally drove this car for a month and put over 600 miles on it. The car really still feels like new. I go about 50 miles to a charge in the cold. The most I got was about 65 miles. Using it as my daily driver I usually put 20-25 miles on it and was always able to have it fully charged on the standard house charger by the next morning. For me my electric bill went up about $45 for that month of charging at home. In warmer weather it should be able to get more miles out of a charge. A 220V charger can be bought for around $200 and will cut charging times in half. The car is very smooth and comfortable to drive. If you live or work somewhere that has public charging it will cost you less then what it did for me to charge at home and will be much more usable at a greater distance from home.
