    I'm sorry but this is another typical journalist with practically zero technical knowledge. Purely comparing the weight of the MiEV battery with the Tesla battery and ignoring energy content is just plain stupid. He gets the Volt range all wrong and of course comparing the BEV range of the MiEV to the EV range of the Volt and declaring the MiEV a winner is a bit strange....

    Not to mention the problem of using the FCX Clarity as a sign of technological advancement. It is an advanced car, but it's commercial success is around 0.
