    Now, if we can just get U.S. production up about 0%. It'll be an improvement. I'm not talking a handfull to corporate fleets, either.

    Conceptually, I like the i-MiEV better than the Leaf.

    Both seem at about the same stage of development with multi-
    continent beta-testing underway. While Nissan is making a strong
    pre-release publicity campaign; in print and on the 'Web, Mitsubushi is
    presumably moving forward, ever so quietly under the cover of
    anonymity. To the average Joe and Jane, Nissan already owns the
    mid-price, $25-30K EV segment, and the race hasn't even begun. (And
    at this point, Think is an also-ran, they still have to build a plant in the
    US.)

    Misubishi, If you're listening, pay attention to the lyrics; they were
    true in 1974, and they're still true to today:

    "Ya gotta have something if you want to be with me:"
