Commented On: Nissan To Offer Leaf Battery Replacement Plan: $100 A Month

When will Duracell make a battery pack for the Leaf? I would think that another battery maker could do far better for this market, if this is all Nissan is going to offer.

Commented On: Does The Tesla Model S Electric Car Pollute More Than An SUV?

It is pretty telling when the reason Tesla was profitable is the money they raked in by selling carbon credits. I saw one report that $32000 for each Tesla Model S delivered. It would be nice if they could pass that on to the consumer in the future, but as a stock holder, I am happy with the current business model.

"Nevertheless, I'm feeling a bit guilty about the sulfur dioxide spewing out of my Tesla's virtual tailpipe."

This is absurd. One point you fail to notice is that gas stations are open 24/7 all over the world. These facilities use a lot of electricity - enough to charge you car for its lifetime, as well as many others. Weiss of course did not factor that fact in either. Add that to the equation, along with the delivery processes of electricity versus fuel and you will find the footprint of the EV's are far below any other vehicle being offered today. No coal power plants have been made to fuel your car - they were built to keep the lights on 24/7 so people can buy gasoline. Go solar if you feel the need. I did and drive free.

Commented On: 2013 Nissan Leaf Real-World Range: Is It Any Higher?

Who drives a vehicle to empty? This is a BS story with a bad title, no information worth reading, and makes conclusions that are of no use. With an EV you can almost double the range by going slower. I am certain that the EPA can be trusted more than this media source after reading this crap.

In California it is illegal to leave your car running with the key in it. Not sure if this would qualify, but if someone did steal the car and had the key, it would be hard to prove you didn't lend them the car. I don't care how safe the area, kids will be kids and leaving any high power device that can kill people locked and loaded is less than smart.

Commented On: Ignore The NY Times; Does Tesla Model S Own Silicon Valley Already?

To begin I must say that Burbank and some other areas around the south are getting in to the Model S, and not looking back.

As for the NY Times idiot - Let me ask how many people would not smile as they drove past a gas station? If you would not smile, you are indeed not some one that represents most of the world. I won't listen to some one like that, and clearly this was as much an opinion piece as a review of the vehicle. This reporter has no clue what most people feel when they drive past a gas station, free from the addiction!

I got to ride in one of these in Santa Monica, and it is impressive, and a step in the right direction. Lots of power is required for a lot of jobs, and this is a vehicle that will attract more people to the ability electric drive has. For most people 100 mpge will not be a problem, since an electric motor is as efficient as the driver is. When you need to haul a trailer behind it you won't get that, but without the waste energy it is achievable easily.

It beats a kick in the head. I am almost half way through 60,000 miles and two years and I have only lost one bar, so I doubt I will use it though.

EV's don't die easy, most of the ones that are sold stay on the road.

Put a Tesla Coil in the back of it, and make the air crackle. Shouldn't be too hard or too costly. Then turn it off as you run over stuff. Really cool to hear the cars under it being crushed, something you don't hear over the sound of those other engines. Leave the windshields in next time, and you will hear some real crushing going on.
