Re: Nissan Leaf

You may well be right.

Re: 2016 National Drive Electric Week

There was an i MiEV at the Saturday event at the Larz Anderson Museum in Brookline, MA. Along with a bunch of Tesla's, i3's, Leafs and a couple of e-Golf's (including mine). There was a Smart ED and even a Fiat 500e - the first I've seen.
