Don C's evaluation of Musk's mental state increasingly appears correct:

When it comes to whatever the rest of the industry is doing though, he's rather less impressed. And in a new interview with Bloomberg, he's given both the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf--the two most prolific plug-ins on America's roads--a big, solid "meh".
It isn't hard to come away with the impression his comments amount to a bit of pot-stirring and reaction provoking--Volt and Leaf owners will no doubt be dusting off their keyboards already. There's more than a little subjectivity to his comments too--aesthetics is a matter of personal preference, and each car's fit and finish is more than respectable for its price point.
