Nissan Goes Gas Powered, Attacks Chevy Volt in New Leaf Advert (VIDEO)

Nissan Goes Gas Powered, Attacks Chevy Volt in New Leaf Advert (VIDEO)

I haven't had the opportunity to view the advert yet. But frankly I say more power to Nissan. While I DO somewhat applaud GM for the Volt, I still feel GM isn't completely committed to the EV concept. They seem to want to pretend they are headed in that direction, but given the slightest chance to back away they're back building SUV's (anyone remember that EV1 thingy??). Their slogan for the Volt is bad enough: "More car than electric" ... it practically sounds like an apology. Like "we really didn't mean to make an electric car ... the government made us do it ... we promise we won't do it again." So if Nissan grills them on the Volt being an EVREV instead of a BEV, then I say that's more than fair; not to mention entirely truthful.
