Modified Kuhl Nissan Leaf

While I personally think stancing cars is ridiculous, especially on an electric that's not going to stop tuning companies from doing so. It hasn't taken long for the folks over at Kuhl Racing to put a widebody kit and negative camber treatment on the new Leaf. Can only imagine what the setup would do for the cars ride and handling.

Once you go this extreme, you're no longer enjoying the various driving dynamics but instead putting yourself through a lot of trouble just for style.

The same $3000+ spent to go from stock to this could be spent to build on its existing strong points.... some people just shouldn't own cars.

While I would never even think about running this kind of setup on one of my vehicles, at least we are seeing early interest in tuning EV's. I would rather the modifications actually improved upon the vehicles capabilities, but some prefer 'style' over sense.

I actually like the body kit, but those cambered wheels are just awful. I'm guessing that this kit is only available in Japan however and its going to be way too expensive to import.

The body kit is just going to add weight to the car though, and I doubt most owners will want to decrease their range. I do think its smart for tuning companies like this to get in now on electrics, because as pricing continues to go down, younger demographics are going to be more inclined to switch.

Depending on where you live there are still some great incentives for new buyers. When you are eligible to get $10-15k off the tag, you're left with a really reasonable price for a brand new EV. But these aren't going to stick around forever.

some employers also offer credits to employee's that get EV's so if you work for a bank or any company with generous packages, take advantage of it!

I feel like a good number of people have been incentivized to consider an EV when their company also offers free charging stations. You would have virtually no concerns with range if you always had that capability.

its a small incentive because at the end of the day you still have a car note. at the end of the day its debt and that major con can turn away a lot of people.
getting an extra full charge is just a small bonus in addition to you already wanting an EV

You aren't going to find an EV that's more fairly priced than the Leaf. Unfortunately a high buy in price is standard for this segment, that is at least until the components and materials become cheaper to source. I expect the S to become even more affordable once the E Plus model comes to market.
