Yuval,

I'm confused. How can sales in one country equate to a far larger sales in another?

Rich, you're right. It could work that way. But in all honesty, I think any smaller and the system would cost more than the benefits it gives...

Actually, it was hinted that a larger system could be used in Busses, where the duty cycle requires lots of heavy stop/start driving. Of course, it could also be used with any existing drivetrain: gasoline, diesel, electric, hybrid...

The lesson here: Be very attentive to exactly WHICH words the press representatives use when they tell you something. Qualifying words make all the difference ;)

I dream for the day when my electric cars can go more than 70 miles without stopping for a recharge... I'm 120 miles from London, and wish I had a car that could make the trip without a single stop!

It's worth noting that I was in London yesterday and saw not a single 'current day' plug-in car on the road. I did see 10 electric cars, but they were all ones no-longer made, like the G-Wiz (Reva) and early Smart ForTwo ED Prototype.

Commented On: Nissan Leaf Electric Car Owners Cover 100 Million Miles Too

Based on the terrible inaccuracy of Nissan's Carwings, I'd suggest that it's much more than the figure quoted.

For example, my own 2011 Nissan Leaf has 29,600 miles on the odometer. Carwings says my car only has 25,000 miles or so.

Assuming for similar inaccuracies with other Leafs, that figure could easily be 130 million miles or more.

Thank you John -- and thank you for your years of polite messages pointing out the occasional typo!

Marc,

Great -- but that means it charges when the car is plugged in, right? We need to make use of TOU metering in the U.K. (Known as economy 7). It reduces the cost of charging at night by at least a half.
