So, Nissan has released video of its production Leaf making “forward” (above) and “backward” noises, but it seems that there may still be some details to work out. For one thing, the Leaf’s official battery range stretches from 138 miles to 47 miles, according to gm-volt.com. Your mileage may vary, etcetera. But wait, there’s more! One blogger recently tried to insure a Leaf… actually, he tried to get an insurance quote for a Leaf. Can you tell where this is going?nissan-leaf.net, the closest thing available to a insurance quote for the Leaf is a rep who felt that because the technology was new and the car had not been vetted as of yet, the premium would probably be 10-15% higher over a similar vehicle, and that it would fall in line once the appropriate tests where done on the vehicle.Apparently this is not an uncommon problem. The Leaf goes on sale this year… someone should probably get a couple of actuaries on this.
