Commented On: Can Plug-In Electric Road Trips Revitalize Fading Historic Route 66?


Green Car Reports 0 Views 15 comments
1500 miles from Canada to Mexico will more closely match your vision of a road trip. Along the route, there are dozens of stops planned, ultimately becoming a "Poker Run". Yes, it's also a serious event, with a fantastic trophy to go to the winner.

Hey, will your Canada to Mexico Rally go through New Mexico, heading along part of old Rt.66 there...Grants, Albuquerque, etc.? Will it go through Alamogordo and/or Las Cruces, too? I'd hit it up if so. This type of thing is good for automobile travel overall...still by far the best way to travel, albeit not the fastest way to travel. But, faster is not better in all applications. I still love long trips in the car and getting out to read the historical signs, for instance.

You were going along fine until you mentioned Ford Focus or Nissan Leaf for U.S. consumption. Ugh.

Commented On: Sales Of Renault Zoe Off To Strong Start In France, Trounces Leaf


Green Car Reports 0 Views 14 comments
The Zoe's 748 units might not seem that high next to U.S. plug-in sales in April--the Volt managed twice that, the Leaf over double at nearly 2,000 units--but in the slow European electric car market it's a sign that things might be changing.

That's because the Renault Zoe offers so much more car for the money. It's technologically so much more car for the money than the Nissan Leaf is it's not even funny.

I would only look for Mitsubishi and their Mirage to be the best rig for ghastly mileage and driving capabilities. And looks. Mitsubishi over Ford forever. Period.

I'd way rather part dollars for a Renault Zoe than a Nissan Leaf. Nissan has managed to take an all-electric and make it look like one of the original Japanese "penalty box" cars IMHO.

Red is my favorite for cars and this is a good red overall.

Nicely written, Antony. I agree with everything you've written and, though I do love the new Renault Zoe, I don't have confidence in Carlos Ghosn and Nissan to politic hard enough with Renault execs to encourage Zoe export to the U.S. My interest level in the Nissan Leaf rates a 10 out of 100. It just looks so weak, so cheap-like, like the early Honda's and Toyota's that came to the States. But reading the early specs and write-ups on the new Renault Zoe, I saw that the French manufacturer has a lot more on the ball as far as cool electronics. Plus, I watched one of the official Renault videos on the manufacturing of the Zoe and I have a nice level of confidence that my Zoe would be well-built and warrantied right if something did go wrong.

This is part of the technology in progress, nothing else. Mitsubishi is going great and they're on top of their game. I would buy no other car but Mitsubishi. They're the best!

I still would love a Renault Zoe but because I live in the U.S. I'm stuck with an ugly Nissan Leaf. I don't really wanna be an "early adopter", anyway, because these new all-electrics don't travel far enough for me. I'll wait for better things later.

I guess I have to move to France to get a new Renault Zoe. I have no desire whatsoever to drive a dull looking Nissan product.
