Five-year cost to own: $34,204. With an operating range of around 150 miles on a charge, the latest version of the Nissan Leaf EV can run for about 50% farther than the version it replaced, though it still falls short of the segment leaders from Tesla and Chevy in that regard. Still, it gets the equivalent of 112 mpg, and remains eligible for a one-time $7,500 federal tax credit, along with any applicable state incentives.
