Nissan began marketing the LEAF on the American market in 2010 as its primary subcompact electric vehicle. Like many electric cars, the LEAF was met with skepticism by the majority of U.S. purchasers. However, the Nissan LEAF is quickly developing a reputation as a competent performer and comfortable ride.
One of the seldom thought of comforts of the Nissan LEAF is the lack of engine noise. Americans have come to expect the roar of the motor. Most are shocked to find that the major noise level in the vehicle is themselves. The four-door LEAF sits five occupants. The front seats have abundant legroom, head room, and shoulder and hip room. The back seat is a bit more cramped, especially in the legroom department.
