    I still don’t get these electrics with a token range. In LA you can blow through 100 miles in no time. Then you have to charge for hours… The Germans had the right idea with this car: http://organicconnectmag.com/wp/2010/10/electric-car-drives-375-miles-at-55-mph-recharges-in-6-minutes/

    “Nissan Leaf Aero style”, improves the aerodynamics or looks like it improves the aerodynamics? If it does improve the leaf sliding through the air , how much?

    Do the 17″ wheels on the Juke make it look more “sporty” or decrease the unsprung weight to make it handle better?

    So it sounds like they are announcing decorative improvements in a green car (the leaf) and the Juke. I’m sorry but “aero style” sounds pretty much like “green wash”.

    I’m a long time Nissan/Datsun owner so I would love to hear that Nissan is offering improved aerodynamics, lowering rolling resistance, or any or all of several known techniques to improve the mileage of their fleet.

    Do you believe that Nissan(or any global automotive company) doesn’t know how to make aerodynamic improvements to their vehicles? Do you think that they improved the actual aerodynamics and then chose not to mention it?
