The cost to drive a Leaf will depend on your local cost of electricity.
*
Nissan Leaf has an energy efficiency of 4 miles per kilowatt-hour. An average price for electricity in the USA is 11 cents per kilowatt-hour. However, most electric utilities offer a lower off-peak rate to electric car users when they charge their cars overnight. The overnight rate in my city is 6 cents per KWH.
*
6 cents divided by 4 miles equals a cost-per-mile of just 1.5 cents.
*
Compare this to the cost of gasoline. If gasoline costs about $ 4 per gallon, I could drive 266 miles for what you might otherwise spend on just one gallon of gas.
*
As you can see, the equivalent MPG above will vary a lot depending on the costs of electricity and gasoline. If you pay 12 cents per KWH of electricity, for example, your equivalent mileage is 133 MPG instead.
*
Or, if gasoline ever gets up to $ 5 per gallon, my cost-equivalent mileage becomes 333 MPG. (Note: the MPGe number you see on electric cars is used for comparing cars, but it doesn’t represent actual cost savings – those need to be calculated individually, as I have done here.)
*
Nissan has a level-2 charger, or you could shop for a different one – do a search on Amazon.com, for example.
