Jeff and Mandy Phillips are always looking for ways to ease their impact on the environment. When Jeff heard there was a special on the Nissan LEAF that would make it possible for him to drive a brand new zero-emissions vehicle and save substantially on his car payment, he signed a lease the next day.

Jeff drives from his home in Santa Barbara to his job with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Ventura five days a week — a 70-mile round trip commute that he used to do in a Ford Escape hybrid.

Expenses before driving on sunshine:

Auto loan: $475/month
Gasoline: $300/month
Utility bills: $30/month
Total: $805/month
