Speaking with the Nashville Business Journal, GM North America president Mark Reuss talked about different topics, including the Chevrolet Volt. When asked about the Nissan Leaf, Reuss voiced his opinion,
“(The Leaf) has a finite range and requires infrastructure and charging to run it, where the Volt is really an extended-range electric vehicle,” he said. “The Volt can really be the only car you own. You better be living within a certain range for the Leaf. … It’s a lot different market, a lot different car and a completely different driver.”
Yikes. But Reuss didn’t stop there…
“I’m not sure if I’d put the leaf in the hands of my three kids,” he said. “Say, what if they can’t charge it? What if they get to school and can’t charge it? The Leaf is a single-purpose car.”
Funny, something smells like burning Leaves at the moment.
