Nissan Leaf

Nissan have unveiled their all-electric vehicle (EV), called the Leaf, and it’s let some journalists drive it. What’s special about the Leaf is that it’s the first mass-market EV. There’s the Tesla Roadster, but that’s a rich man’s toy, and the Mitsubishi iMiev, but that’s only available in Japan. The Popular Science article has all the normal bits you’d find in a review, but I found one of the comments, by someone signing as skillet, far more interesting.

If they really want electric cars to take off they should stop making them look like turdwagons. The environmentalists should really take offense to this. The car manufacturers are stereotyping you into a bunch of hatch-back loving nerds.

My thoughts exactly.
