Cars.com Names the Nissan LEAF as “Eco-Friendly Car of the Year”

The LEAF commonly gets about 80 miles to a charge, but Cars.com didn’t consider that a major disadvantage, said Wiesenfelder. People who buy the LEAF are aware of range considerations, he said. “Some people want to drive a vehicle like that, one that is environmentally friendly and high-tech.” Also, the Cars.com staff had a LEAF for some months and “we found it absolutely was enough range,” he said.

Cars.com is seeing more searches for plug-in electric cars, he said, but not as many questions about the technology. “There were more questions when (the LEAF) was brand new,” said Wiesenfelder. “It is probably a good thing in many ways that people are less concerned” about the technology, he said. “People own then, and see them on the road.”

Plug-in electric vehicle sales nearly doubled in 2013 compared to the previous year, he said, and the single biggest contributor to that rise was the LEAF.
