The 2012 Nissan LEAF is now in its second year of production and Nissan has sweetened the pot with a host of goodies that now come standard, including heated front and rear seats. Sporting a range of 100 miles on a single charge, this zero-emissions vehicle stretches the definition of commuter car. In anticipation of more public quick charge stations dotting the countryside, the 2012 LEAF comes with a quick charge port as standard. The LEAF seats five adults, making it roomier than it appears, and a hatchback aids in accessing additional cargo space. Posting impressive miles-per-gallon equivalent numbers, the 2012 Nissan LEAF ranks second on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's annual list of fuel economy leaders.

Fuel Economy: 106 mpg city/92 mpg highway/99 mpg combined

MSRP: $27,700 after tax savings
