And the batteries along the undercarriage create such a low center of gravity, that the car hugs the road better than my old Porsche did. It may not get far on the open highway, but my Leaf is a pleasure to tool around town.
That's awesome, and I think that is the situation the Leaf is designed for, urban short trip stop-and-go traffic. If it were evaluated in that respect rather than unfairly knocking it for highway range etc. I think few would argue that this is a great vehicle. Great info, thanks!
