Trading the Pump for a Plug « Liveshots

Trading the Pump for a Plug « Liveshots: "The LEAF is perhaps the most ambitious electric vehicle venture since the 1990s, when several major automakers went into limited EV production in response to California zero-emissions mandates. Electric cars, such as the General Motors EV1, Ford Ranger EV, Honda EV Plus and Toyota RAV4 EV were discontinued shortly after a group of automakers successfully challenged the California requirements.

Padgett said the LEAF is a 'game changer' for Nissan, which is operating on the assumption that American consumers are ready to trade the pump for a plug."
