Boy, that's great to hear. If they release this car in 2013 for $35K like they promised, I'm all over it.

I love the look of this car and all of the new technology. I just wonder if I could live without the windows rolling down.

I am thrilled Nissan created the Leaf and I would love to see their sales take off. A less expensive version made in TN would probably help a lot. I think it's a great car, but I have never like the styling. The front end is funky and the rear is even worse. I wonder if they are going to tune up the sheet metal to make it more attractive.

I really wanted a Focus electric back when they were announced. Unfortunately, they now cost $40K, instead of the $30K that Ford originally projected. If Ford wants to get into the EV business, they are going to have to get real with the price and compete with the Leaf. If they wait until the BMW i3 comes out next year for $35K, they will be toast. Audi, Hyundai and Volkswagen won't be far behind.

There is a reason why millions of Focus and Cruz models are selling, while the Volt and Focus EVs aren't. The EV version costs twice as much as the similar combustion version. Until this price gap shrinks considerably, EVs are going to be a tough sell.
