Electric vehicles are all the rage. Apparently. And if you have a hankering to commute silently, to enjoy the cost-saving benefits of plugging in the car, and to revel in finally disregarding petrol stations, the Nissan Leaf may be the way to go.
This is one of the best EV hatchbacks with five doors and all the upmarket features for the family - leather, sat-nav and a top-shelf infotainment system - and has a 315km range before needing a recharge. The charge is now $53,190 drive-away. This is a healthy saving of $3042 over the normal price.
