These days, I'm seeing a lot of electric cars, especially Nissan Leafs. I mean, there must be at least five just in the town I live in. These cars are easy to spot, because of the blue Nissan logo and the curved shape. A few days ago, I saw a video on Teslas, the sort of Lamborghini of electric cars, and how their autopilot detects crashes scarily quick and responds seconds before anything could happen, saving lives. These cars, however, are pretty expensive but for the amazing autopilot, running on electricity and a futuristic touchscreen that could qualify as a medium sized TV, you get a bit of bang for your buck. However, these cars cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and, until I hit it rich, I won't be able to afford one. Just for a bit of fun, I'll show you the Tesla Model X:
Yeah. Wow. Look at that screen. Look at It. So huge. Aaaaaanyway, I'm getting sidetracked. The point is, you get up to seven seats, amazing storage, 0-60 in 5 seconds, a top speed of 155 mph (245 kilometers per hour) In an electric SUV for $80,000 USD (which is exactly $111968.90 NZD.). You can buy packages to go with the car, including the autopilot package, six seats package, sub-zero weather package, premium package and premium audio package ranging from $1400 NZD to $6300 NZD.

Now, the earlier mentioned Nissan Leaf, our seemingly cheaper, normal-person friendly electric cars. Firstly, I'd like to give Nissan a hand for having a go at an electric car. This car is now the most popular electric car in the world (yay!) and at an excellent price, too. The newest model sells for $20,000-$40,000 NZD. I mean, you can even buy a solar panel to go on top, how cool is that? You can basically plug it in like an iPhone and charge it overnight, ready for tomorrow within 8 hours of charging. Having looked at these cars today, I found the results very interesting, and when I grow up, If I'm not rich, then I'll probably go for the leaf, which really is competing with Tesla, especially in price. Having said that, I'll leave you with some Nissan leaf imagery:
