I heard they did not invent anything new, just licensing the technology from Toyota.

Just buy a Toyota. Why have two of their countries companies make money.

I’ll just buy a VW Jetta. I can buy a lot of gas with the $8000 difference in price.

It won’t “cost” $25,000. It will cost far more than that. It’s just that part of the cost will be picked up by the Feds.

Does anyone know how often the battery needs to be replaced? Cost? Disposal problems?

With Obama telling us household electricity is going to be more and more scarce and costly, why the hell is the FedGuv promoting eletric cars with big rebates? Has everyonbe gone nut, including me?

As taxpayers, my children are proud to subsidize loony left symbols such as the Prius and now this electric car. How is this vehicle different from a golf cart, other than having worse performance?

If we can be forced to buy Obama’s Healtcare; then we can be forced to buy whatever car he tells us to.

The front clip looks like the head of some sort of fish. Just sayin’, makes me want to buy bait.

Otherwise, I really did the shade of black on the tires.

The Nissan Pile. Up to you to say pile of what.

The Nissan Rhea. Short for diarrhea.

And finally my favorite: The Nissan JarJar. Look at the first picture. Tell me it doesn’t look like a smiling JarJar Binks, the worst character/race EVER made beating out the Ewoks by far. Least the Ewoks didn’t talk.

I see this car and hear “Meesa go 100 miles!” and I want to destroy it.
