Cheapest New EVs Available in the US Market - Would you buy one? [View all]


Starting with the 2022 Nissan Leaf, starting at $27,400 before any rebates, and maybe $20,000 with rebate, this article lists the cheapest available new EVs sold in the USA that can be used anywhere in the country.

Some other, less expensive, low speed EVs are also listed in the article, but this poll is only about the ones you can use anywhere and on any roads, including Interstate highways.

So, could you or would you buy one of these?
