If you're looking to get over 100 miles out of your next EV before needing to recharge, Nissan hopes its retooled Leaf will grab your attention. Two of the 2016 models claim an EPA-estimated 107-mile range thanks to a bigger 30 kWh battery. And yes, that's both best-in-class and 27 percent further than the previous power pack would take you. Looking to park one in your driveway? The base S model is priced at $29,010 before a $7,500 federal tax credit lowers the cost to $21,510. There are also SV and SL models, priced at $26,700 and $29,290 (after tax credit) respectively, if you're after a new ride with more options than the standard model offers.

If you want the larger battery and longer range, you'll have to splurge for an SV or SL as the S option still packs the same 24 kWh battery as before. Those other added options for the pricier two models include NissanConnect EV that sorts remote connection, monitors battery charge, turns on the heat/air conditioning before you get inside and more. No matter which one you pick, all three pack in a 80kW AC synchronous motor with 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. All of which zooms you around town without creating emissions, of course.
