For this week’s episode of GigaOM TV’s Green Overdrive video show we test drive the all-electric Nissan LEAF, which will go on sale starting in December in select cities. With a sticker price of $33,000, the LEAF will be arguably the cheapest mainstream, highway legal, all-electric car available (and a good deal less expensive than GM’s Volt). The car itself was smooth to drive, had a nice pick up and had a killer digital dashboard system that shows the driver where the closest plug-in charging station is and what the available range is with the car’s battery state of charge. Are you gonna get one?
