Several EV journalists have gotten to test drive the LEAF this week, including yours truly.

Nissan LEAF test drive and first impressions - is my article - my capsule summary is they really do have a winner on their hands. It is a way cool car with lots of good things to say about it. It's fast (for a family car), it's roomy, comfortable, great features, affordable (for an electric car) and Nissan seems to be serious about making them by the tens of thousands.

2011 Nissan Leaf Drive Review: A Real Electric Car for Real People - Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield got to drive it today, I think she's in total agreement with me.
