I've own my Nissan Leaf for almost a year. It has served me just as a regular car. I live in a small town 70 miles from Austin, and I use my Leaf to commute to Austin and back. I drive to Austin one day, and drive back on a different day. The Leaf is perfect for this, with plenty of margin through all seasons, whether 107 degree summer days, or below freezing winters.
I've also driven the 75 miles into San Antonio with the family in the morning, enjoyed a lunch and a day downtown while the Leaf recharges, and driven back in the same day. I'm extremely happy with my EV.
