Hybrid/EV Car - Nissan Leaf
The 2012 Nissan LEAF is the 2012 Ideal Vehicle Award winner in the Hybrid/EV Car crowd. The Nissan Leaf is a pure electric automobile that provides drivers with 73 miles of driving from a single battery charge. 107 horsepower help the subcompact Leaf feel reasonably lively in a number of different driving situations, and the car doesn't come across as all that different from gas-powered competitors when underway - high praise for an electric vehicle. The Nissan Leaf shines as a city commuter car, and with a reasonable amount of planning it should offer enough juice to take care of a day's worth of driving activities without any range anxiety.
