    Looks like they try out the iMIEV and had the typical "range anxiety" experience most auto journalists seem to have. The battery bar kind of indicator in the iMIEV certainly didn't help (a "miles left" indicator instead and/or the navigation system in the Leaf would go a LONG way to address some of the "range anxiety"). And I wonder if they tried a Roadster out.
