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. Maneuvering in such a noiseless fashion, like a Native American scout silently taking information, clandestinely gathering knowledge in concealment.
Carrying that thought on, here’s a list for anyone else considering a new path in life, using the LEAF or another fully electric vehicle:

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