    And who is putting that myth about?


    Interesting also that the Nissan guy says the Leaf will be fleet only in 2012 and not hit retail until 2015.

    He is probably referring to when the Nissan Leaf will arrive in Australia which, like most car releases, is a year or so behind Europe\USA and yes the Drive team has occasionally made some glaring errors in their understanding of energy and the concept of well to wheel. I think they sometimes rely too much on press releases, but they're not alone in this.

    I saw my first RAV 4 in Sydney a year before California.

    Probably an exception to the rule.
