What’s it like to, as a family, only own one vehicle, which is to be shared amongst two individuals?

If you’re like the vast majority of families within the US, then owning just one vehicle (to be shared by two+ people living under one roof) is likely something you’ve never personally experienced.

But for this Washington couple, owning one vehicle is now a reality.

But it’s not the fact that one vehicle is shared amongst two that intrigues us.

It’s that the vehicle of choice was the Nissan LEAF.

The married couple you see here went from owning two vehicles down to only one Nissan LEAF.

That’s a jump few would be willing to take and we truly applaud them for making such a bold decision.

Has it worked out?

Watch and you’ll soon discover what it’s like to share one Nissan LEAF in a family of two.

I love the plain 220V outlet at 4:09! So simple.

@Anderlan

Look again my friend…. This is a 20 amp 110 volt outlet (Nema 5-20 for you purists out there)

What a difference in mindset, without a judging by the way. I just looked up the numbers for the Netherlands:
30% has no car
46% has one car
22% has two cars
2% has more than two cars

that leaf is so ugly why would anyone pay money for it

Because of its “inner beauty” 😉

Ah c’mon EV younger people think its a ‘trendy’ look, whatever that means.. I think it looks like a 1960’s station wagon, which is probably why it sells.. It can carry a fair amount, one of the criticisms of my Volt. When I want to put too many people in it, I have to take the back roads so no cops spot me, but I’ve had 6 or 7 in my volt so far. The skinny dudes have to get locked in the hatchback. Their girl friends can’t fit back there and they can’t contortion anyways. The alternative is the Roadster, one of the smallest cars ever made.

Bacause
a) It’s a pretty good car
b) Not everyone thinks it’s ugly

Wops, feeding the trolls 🙂
