Readers of Oversteer, rejoice: I have found the highest-mileage Nissan Leaf on Autotrader, and it is this one.

Pictured above and located here for your viewing pleasure, this is a 2013 Nissan Leaf with 81,867 miles. This in itself wouldn't be especially unusual: a 2013 automobile with 82,000 miles. After all, many 2013 automobiles have traveled 82,000 miles. But then you remember: This isn't just any 2013 vehicle with 82,000 miles. This is a 5-year-old electric car with 82,000 miles.

And then we must pull out our calculators.

According to Nissan, the 2013 Leaf could go 84 miles on a single charge. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the 2013 Leaf could travel 75 miles on a single charge. Let's pick 80 miles, just for argument's sake, and then do the calculation. If you drove a Leaf to full battery depletion every single day for 5 years, you'd cover 146,000 miles. And if you drove a Leaf to full battery depletion every single weekday for 5 years, you'd cover 104,000 miles.

And so, you can see that 82,000 miles is pretty darn impressive. Not only is it impressive that this Leaf's owner was able to drive it so much, but the coolest part is that they clearly had a long commute -- and they bought a Leaf anyway. There was no range anxiety in this Leaf owner's household.

So what does an 82,000-mile Leaf look like? Well, not that much different from a normal Leaf. It has a little wear on the driver's seat and on the center console lid, and it could probably use a cleaning, but it turns out a 2013 Leaf doesn't show its miles any worse than a normal gas-powered vehicle.

It has, however, greatly diminished in value. While a new Leaf was around $30,000 before tax credits, this one -- offered by PCH Car Company near San Diego -- is listed for just $7,995. And while it's the highest-mileage Leaf on Autotrader, it's not the cheapest, meaning shoppers in the market for a used Leaf can certainly find some great deals.
