Nice I wonder if they will offer conversions of current cubes to electric, and of corse how much that would cost.

I would propose that the stimulus money/tax refund suppliments should provide compensation for people converting their cars if possible. DJ

Unfortunately, Cubes are not terribly aero efficient, so that would hurt range. The Leaf is designed from the ground up to be an EV and the drag coeffeicnt is one of the best of all vehicles.

I spent a LOT of time in the Leaf last summer and in the Volt last autumn. I wish we could take a chance on a Leaf. That's me in this pre-production car last July

I think building niche cars like sports cars as the poster childs for EV is the right thing to do. They sell in small numbers anyways and the typical owners are early adopters. :yes: :-\ :-\

Maybe the Leaf sell in small numbers compared to others cars models, but does way better than the cube, but still, there is a reservation list on them and they found a buyer who waited to have it.

Number sales were at more than 15 000 by mid-october. While the Volt...did 4000...
