  3. EREV vs EV: Thousands Stuck in Cars on Iced-Over Atlanta Roads

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I would not want to be a Nissan Leaf driver in Atlanta about now. At least with the Volt you have a a backup fuel when the battery is drained. And for those who keep their Volt gas tank at a 2 gallon level, this situation illustrates why keeping a full tank might be a safer alternative...

  8. Time: Declare Leaf a flop?

    Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Competitors
    As you'd expect, the Volt gets dragged into the discussion as well, "The other plug-in most often mentioned in the same breath as the Leaf—the Chevy Volt—hasn’t been a runaway hit either. But at least sales are growing." No surprise, anti-EV commentors rejoice with I told you so's and display...

  18. Electric Vehicle manufacturers to early adopters: <em>Drivers Needed</em>

    Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Competitors
    This is not flattery, it is a fact: GM needs you. And for that matter, Nissan needs LEAF owners, and all other EV makers will need their early adopters as the most credible part of their marketing efforts. If you are an early adopter, then research shows you are probably already more forward...
  19. Nissan LEAF drivers are saying range is lower than expected

    Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Competitors
    Instead of Nissan under-promising and over-delivering on the range capability for its new all-electric LEAF , some are alleging it may have done the opposite. At least this is the scuttlebutt from stories beginning to stack up in a LEAF discussion forum and news outlets saying LEAF drivers...
