Why the Nissan LEAF is the Best Used EV To Buy Post


She’s got style, she’s got grace, she’s the best used electric vehicle in the place. We may have jokes but we would never kid about the Nissan LEAF and its amazing reliability. This vehicle continues to get better with age. Because Maus Nissan of Crystal River prides itself on creating a dealership experience different from anyone else, we are confident that the Nissan LEAF is the best used electric vehicle (EV) to buy. Here’s why.

Let’s talk price because in most cases, affordability trumps all. Based on a survey of over 50,000 sales between 2019 and 2020, the Nissan LEAF was the top-selling used EV in most states with about 28% while the Tesla Model S, a comparable vehicle, came in around 18%. One major reason: an economical price tag. A used LEAF’s average price is around $13k compared to a used Model S that comes in around $49k. With such a wide price gap, it makes sense to take advantage of all the Leaf has to offer.

There’s no doubt that you get a great bang for your buck. The Nissan LEAF is offered with either a 40kWh or 62 kWh battery. If you plan to adventure quite a bit, the larger of the two will give you up to 226 miles of electric range. And with Nissan’s highly rated ProPILOT system, the LEAF handles traffic hiccups with almost true independence. This semi-autonomous system enables the hatchback to come to a full stop on its own, steer effortlessly on highways and keep within its lane. The tech is cool but when paired with the ultimate driver assistance technologies of Nissan’s Safety Shield 360, it is every driver’s perfect car yin yang. Blindspot warning, automatic emergency braking, and rear cross-traffic alert are some of the applications included.

When you combine all of LEAF’s strengths together, it’s a compelling story to buy used. Additionally, because purchasing used electric vehicles gives buyers more trim options to choose from, it’s an incentive to reach for the highest one available. As our friends from Parks and Rec always say, why not treat yo’self?

If you have the chills and it’s multiplying, it must be the electrifying nature of the LEAF. Maus Nissan of Crystal River  can help you find the perfect used electric vehicle. Give us a call at (352) 592-6287 to schedule an appointment or stop by the showroom today.
