Nissan Leaf Ad Pokes Fun At Chevy Volt

The Nissan Leaf and Chevy Colt are often mentioned alongside each other, but that doesn't seem to be sitting too well with Nissan, which has released a new ad that not only pokes fun at gas-powered vehicles in general, but takes a very specific jab at the Volt as well. While both cars feature electric engines, the Volt is a hybrid, which means that it can still utilize gasoline to expand its range. The ad itself shows people going through their lives using all sorts of gas-guzzling gadgets — from hairdryers to computers — under the tagline "What if everything ran on gas?" It ends with a shot of a man filling up a Volt at a gas station before panning over to a Leaf being recharged electrically. This isn't the first time that Nissan has poked fun at GM. A few months back the company said of the Volt ""real electric cars don't have tailpipes."
