Driving the LEAF has been such a different kind of driving experience for me. The LEAF has lit my imagination. I recently thought up 10 uses for a silent Nissan LEAF, with more to come.

The LEAF, like every all-electric vehicle, makes almost no sound (beyond the quiet beeping sounds when backing up). Initially, due to the silence, I started considering a career shift.

Hmm, another idea just hit me, perhaps Solar Man will hire me.
