It was all nice until I sat inside one. What a waste of time. They must’ve spent man-years to make it look like the average car. Oh the boredom of it.
Did you drive it, at least?
of course not – it’s like asking to power on a Mac that has been dressed up to look like a PC.
I’ve had my LEAF for over two years. Best car I have ever owned. Boring? I don’t think so. Go back and drive it. 0 to 60 in less than nine seconds with the instant torque–no gears or transmission to slow you down. A real kick to drive.
I didn’t realize I had to get my thoughts and feelings vetted by you guys before uttering any of them. Please let me know the nearest Bolshevik Collective where I shall register at once!
Ps on a serious note the recent S fire seems a case of overeager rush to market -hope they don’t ruin it all
Oh the boredom of you…
Absolutely nothing you have ever said has contained anything of any value whatsoever.
What a waste of time.
What did you expect? A gentle female voice greeting you asking if you had a pleasant sleep when you got into it?
Its a transportation device, and works brilliantly as such.
Guess I was expecting the Tesla S even if I didn’t know it
Maybe next time you’ll do your homework and know more about something before making a subjective judgement.
The Tesla Model S was the best selling car in Norway in September.
Definitely not a boring car.
I haven’t seen one myself but from the video posted on this site some weeks ago, I agree with you…the Tesla S looks like the iPad of the electric cars. Not boring at all.
The interior is amazing and perhaps if I had the money to buy one, I’d also have the money to change the steering wheel in something out of the Jetsons…
My next door neighbor was having a pool party for his upper class friends
(I wasn’t invited :( ) ,and one of his rich buddies arrived in a Tesla S.
During the course of the party, he would take the other guests for a spin in the car,and they all looked like they were coming off of a fun carnival ride at the end of the drive.
Keep in mind that more than 99% of Norway’s electricity is coming from renewable resources.
Ironic moronic comments. The EV mfrs are going out of their way to make their products as similar to existing ICE (boring) as possible. Why? Marketing shows them that greater sales volume with the familiar. Anything new is risky. Not what everyone wants, but it is what they buy. Nissan and other mfrs have been making the same square box with four wheels for 100 years. Nobody wants to try something new and risky. Just making an EV is risky enough. Jetsons steering would be the biggest flop since the Edsel. How about a push button hydraulically controlled automatic? Headlights that turn when the wheels turn? The talking car? Center mounted display? Duds. Really, buyers want boring. Look at the top selling autos and tell me they don’t want boring. Ur advice is the shortest route to bankruptcy. Good thing they are not so foolish.
Your comments are idiotic alright. Unsurprising. Did they sell cardboard horses to place in front of the first cars? Perhaps they should have /sarc
You have a point, but don’t forget that the first generation Prius looked nothing like what the do today. It was a rounded bean-like sedan with little tires. They didn’t really take off until they had the distinctive Prius shape. People want something different, but not too different. The Aptera was a great car, but had crossed the line on being too different.
I drive a 2012 Nissan Leaf. The most distinctive aspect in the vein you’re taking about is probably the shifter, which should more properly be called a drive selector. That’s the one thing that has to be briefly explained to new drivers.
“Your comments are idiotic alright. Unsurprising.”
Juvenile projection appears to be the upper bound of your sense of humor, Maurizio. Why is that?
jp – suffering of selective amnesia, are you? Ask “Christopher Arcus” about what it feels to be juvenile.
Feeling the urge to attack me regardless of the topic at hand, seems another sign away from ever becoming a responsible adult.
Projection on top of projection is supposed to be some kind of rational response?
You are being opposed for insultingly calling someone who exposes your comment as moronic an idiot, and, likewise, calling someone who questions your juvenile sense of humor as immature.
This is the rhetorical equivalent of saying, “I know you are, but what am I?”
It is classical juvenile projection. Ipso facto.
To answer your on topic question, the first cars were essentially horse drawn carriages with a motor, much as the Leaf is configured much like an ordinary ICE vehicle . No, they didn’t have cardboard horses, but many constituencies required someone with a flag to precede them because of fears of scaring horses.
So your rebuttal is just as moronic as your original comment.
