Nissan EV

I know we all have badass, fuel gulping bikes, but I'm always looking for a car to drive to work that's better than my p.o.s. 94 Civic. I hate that thing. It's been totaled twice and it just sits in front of my house for 6 months out of the year. Long story, i know, but i've been waiting for an affordable EV for my daily commuter and i think Nissan has it. 100 miles per charge is enough for me to get to work. And it doesn't look bad to me. Hopefully the price is around 20k after the gov. pays $7500. http://www.nissanusa.com/leaf-electric-car/index.jsp

hybrids are becoming more and more efficient. I personally would not want a hybrid, but i can see the attraction. id say in another decade or so gas will be history or close to it.

that car from nissan is a better looking one than say that toyota thing.

if you can afford it. I already have a car for long trips, i just need one to and from work. The Nissan doesn't use gasoline. All electric baby.
