Revenge of the Electric Car, compelling but no cars get smashed

October 7th, 2011

Revenge of the Electric Car will appeal to car geeks who want to hear all they can about the vanguard of electric vehicles and the personalities behind them.

Was it hard to achieve acceptable range? What is their range? (I guess we can look it up at fueleconomy.gov.) Why did GM decide to enter the market with a sport vehicle? Were they consigning EVs to a niche play? How do they really feel about Nissan jumping ahead with their family sedan? Will the Tesla roadster ever get below $100 grand? Why did Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn go all-in on the Leaf? We get whiffs of answers to all these questions, and some precious behind-the-scenes vignettes, like Ghosn whispering hush-hush to his staff before springing the Leaf on the world.
