Nissan brought a preproduction version of its new Leaf electric car to San Francisco, letting us get our first drive in the car. As the lead vehicle in what could be a new generation of electric cars, Nissan has done a lot of things right.
Most impressive is the price. At $32,780 it might sound on the pricey side, but a Federal tax credit knocks $7,500 off the price. A number of states also offer a $5,000 tax credit, putting the real price of the Leaf around $20k.
Check out our video as Brian Cooley gets his first taste of the Leaf.
