    The Leaf actually has a decent amount of torque and speed for an electric vehicle. It is at 100% torque as soon as you press on the gas and is capable of speeds up to 90mph. However, this car is not intended to be driven fast. At 90mph, your battery will not even last you through the day. All of the tests that Nissan has performed to test the battery range of the Leaf were done at speeds under 45mph. They get great efficiency on suburban or city roads, but no one is going to drive 45mph on the highway.

    I just want to point out that most electric vehicles (EVs) tend to have a decent amount of torque and speed for an electric vehicle. It is actually not that hard to get an EV that goes 80 mph or more easily. Here’s another EV that goes fast:

    Gordon got the Battery Bunny up to 80mph once and could have gone faster, but decided not to risk a speeding ticket.
