    Second car - exactly right. My Civic almost never goes out of town. Any family trips are in the Odyssey. The ranges I drive within town, even on my busy days, are within the reach of the Leaf. It could do 99% of what my Civic currently does, with that extra 1% going to the Ody, which we already have. I see no limitation.

    In fairness, most of us drive cars that will leave us stranded if our fuel tank gets too low. At least the Leaf can be plugged in at a ubiquitous 120V outlet for an hour if it runs too low to make it home[/QUOTE]

    Echoing the above responses ... millions of American families own second cars whose sole purpose is daily commuting. Most families who have a minivan, wagon or SUV for family roadtrips could replace their second or third commuter car with an EV, saving energy (and in many cases, money) in the process.
