    We made a few hundred bucks last night at a survey for EV's. Long story short, it was related to the features expected in a high dollar (still supposed to come in at under $50K) electric car. Turns out they were wanting to see if they got it right designing the Infinity EV:

    I didn't even know it was on the way! Rumor has it that they're actually hoping to beat the Tesla S to market. What with Nissan's background/experience this could really be some serious competition!

    HOWEVER -
    Don't expect it to look like the shot above. Turns out it'll look nothing like the pictures that the media keep floating over the internet, which are apparently just for our entertainment. The pictures they presented to us last night looked more akin to a cross between a 2012 Camry and a Lexus GS. Less sporty - more luxury.

    So....other than getting the name (Infiniti) wrong....

    The picture is of the Infiniti Essence concept, unveiled almost 2 years ago at Geneva, which is a turbocharged V6 mated to an EV system (making it a hybrid):

    Where are you getting this from? This is the latest thing I could find on Google news search:

    Oh NO - I mis-spelled an auto maker's badge that (by sales numbers) few buy into ... oh no ... :)
    Ok so in the same vein pertaining to spelling/gramar ... the comment, '... where are you getting this from?..' - that isn't really enough for me to determine what 'this' is. Maybe flesh out the question a bit? Where am I getting 'what' from?

    I think he was questioning where you were getting "this" information from. But if he'd read a little more closely, he'd see you pretty clearly addressed that.
