    Wanted: An Electric Runabout

    Tony, I know you pop in now and again on the forums--glad to see it. But considering a conversion? Say it ain't so. With all of the disaster stories of conversions, my bet is you'd be happier with a leaf and a gasser (even a Sky...whatever). My point is, you and me will one day own an EV...

    I suppose everyone has their limits.

    Nissan Leaf

    I'm sure most of you already heard, but Ghosn said that the Nissan already sold out of the Leafs: http://green.autoblog.com/2010/05/25/carlos-ghosn-2011-nissan-leaf-sold-out/ I'm not sure what to make of it other than $99 deposits are unreliable. However, I came within an inch of putting...

    Nissan Leaf

    I concur with this quote. I haven't been on here for a while...but once I heard about the price of the LEAF, I thought the same thing...gamechanger. I'll throw this price at a POS just to try it out. Now I'm thinking I may put down my deposit just for the hell of it. I wish it were an...

    Chinese BYD EV

    Okay, we have a $40,000 price point (approx), range of 186 miles and speed of 99 mph which IMO is not bad considering what is on the market today, set for release in 2010. WHERE ARE THE TEST DRIVES? Warren, these should be all over the place :confused: I'm still in the "I'll believe it when I...

    DDB has a 54 Vette?

    Oh no, it's close. Same year engine, same everything (except it supposedly came out of a truck). Blue flame something--I think I"ll sell it and keep it together then buy my Tesla. Although it's an interesting question if anyone with a donor car has tried to pick-up a Tesla part like an engine.

    Opinions of value please

    Maybe it's just me, but I think location of the vehcile is important. For a buyer in the Midwest, shipping would be expensive... But availability of a used Roadster is nill. i think there are about 3 in Ohio.

    DDB has a 54 Vette?

    It's a frame off restoration; pretty car. Non-matching engine though. Otherwise, everything is darn authentic. I've got pics back home...now if i knew how to post :rolleyes:

    Nissan Drops the EV Bomb

    I think it'll be a little more complete than Chrysler's ENVI deal with the minivan, Jeep, and Circuit a while back. I'm excited and believe they may have something mainstream.

    A Fundraising Effort for Tesla Should be Started

    Yep, and on that note, if it can't compete against the big boys, then it should probably fail. Sorry if this sounds political or ideological, but it's how our market [should] works.

    GM Chevy Volt

    ha ha. Really, the article focuses solely on the economic argument and not on those that purchase vehicles for other reasons. Have people forgot about the environment, oil independence, and/or latest gizmo in technology? Picard should be more open-minded.

    Toyota's PHEV/REEV Plans

    It's projected to be more expensive than the Volt! Interesting...

    Fisker Karma

    Cobos, I think you nailed it with availabilty... I think Fisker is toast if they don't hit the market soon. It is a cool looking car, I admit, but for the price, I think I may just opt for a Volt AND Model S, you know?

    Mitsubishi Motors i MiEV

    "to less than 2 million yen ($21,000)" That is a CHEAP car. I'd like to see them pull that off here... If they can, I'd say they won the EV for the masses race.
