Steve said that compared to previous car he saved over $9,000 since May 2011 commuting over 60 miles each way to work:

"I have saved over $9,000 driving my LEAF compared to my previous car that got 30 miles to the gallon. And I have not had to burn 3,000 gallons of gasoline."

"It was simply to save money. I could see the operating costs were going to be less than a gasoline car."

"I am confident that Nissan's LEAF is a perfect commuter car for those that put serious miles on their car or just need to run around town."

"There is room for a family. It is a perfect car."

Washington State Governor Jay Inslee stated that he has plans to expand the state's electrical corridor to the east and west:

"It is great that Washington State, which has led the world in so many ways, is again leading the world."
