In a recent test drive, a Nissan Leaf traveled 116 miles on a single charge. That's good news for city usage.
In a recent test drive, a Nissan Leaf has traveled 116.1 miles on a single charge. The Leaf was originally marketed as delivering 100 miles per charge. In mid-October, Nissan revised its range estimates to "between 62 and 138 miles" per charge.
According to Engadget, the pilot of this test drove "casually and slightly below the speed limit," but not "like an obsessed hypermiler." The air conditioning was turned on for the duration of the test run.
All things considered, 116 miles won't do much to cure skeptics of their range anxiety, but it sounds pretty promising for a city car.
