The bottom line is our LEAF has 1/3 the energy costs of our late VW New Beetle Convertible.
The OUCH! is my electric utility is Con Edison. Last month I paid $0.17 per kilowatt hour for electricity (supply 5.2 cents and delivery 11.5 cents). For the month of December 2012, driving our LEAF cost us $0.05 per mile (our old Bug would have cost $0.15 per mile - three times as much).
Again, thank you Nissan. We love our LEAF!
