The best and most affordable EV in the world. The first mass produced
Battery has a shortened life in 100F+ heat. You lose about 10% range
a year. Our daily work commute is only 24 miles so we have 3x the
range actually needed.
The new Desert heat battery (Lizard) April 2014 is no better.

We returned it on the Lease and won't get another LEAF!!
