    Nissan Leaf wins World Car of the Year

    Electrifying Win for the Nissan Leaf | Autopia | Wired.com

    "A panel of 66 automotive journalists from 24 countries named the Leaf the best thing on four wheels, choosing it over the BMW 5-Series, Audi A8 and 34 other automobiles from around the world."

    definitely shocked to see this. glad to see that electric cars are starting to make some decent headway in the market. hopefully they can figure out the range issue so that they may become more than just a car to drive around the city and on short trips.

    Definitely a good thing. Glad to see automakers start looking at alternatives to gasoline, 'cause it's getting ridiculous to fill up at the pump.

    I am 99% positive this is because of the battery technology as opposed to the total package.

    Nothing against the Leaf and I'm not a big fan of either but I struggle to see why the Volt wouldn't win this award.

    Didn't it turn out that Nissan's claims on mileage per charge were grossly overstated? There ws some news story recently that didn't exactly paint the Leaf in the best light.

    I think you're going to see that a lot with electric cars, especially in cold environments.
