FRANKLIN, Tenn., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Need to get from point A to point B in the most fuel-efficient and convenient way possible? TotalCarScore.com suggests hopping in a 100-percent electric Nissan LEAF, which it recently named the No. 1 car for commuting.

TotalCarScore.com is a website that scores vehicles based on evaluations from authoritative sources such as Consumer Guide, Edmunds.com, MSN Autos, US News/World Report, The Car Connection, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. To determine the "10 Best Cars for Commuting," a vehicle's Total Car Score is combined with its fuel-efficiency rating in city-driving conditions.

"What we like about this list is that it truly measures the LEAF in the way it was intended—as a zero-emissions car with no-compromise performance," said Brendan Jones, director, Electric Vehicle Marketing and Sales Strategy. "Our data shows that Nissan LEAF owners drive an average of 31 miles per day, which makes it a perfect choice to meet the daily driving needs of most Americans."

The Nissan LEAF uses zero gas, offers a quiet and confident ride and boasts a slate of convenience features to make the driving experience easier and more comfortable. Standard features on the Nissan LEAF SV include heated front and rear seats, heated outside mirrors, heated steering wheel, Automatic on-off LED Headlights, Navigation system, CARWINGS telematics service, Bluetooth ® Hands-free Phone System and XM ® Satellite Radio (XM ® subscription required, sold separately).

Additional options included in the Nissan LEAF SL model include Level 3 480V quick charge port, fog lights, photovoltaic solar panel rear spoiler and RearView Camera Monitor, which is handy for street parking.

Available nationwide, the Nissan LEAF is the world's first all-electric, zero-emission vehicle for the mass market, and it's the first electric car for anyone to purchase, anywhere in the United States.
