My personal opinion is EVs are just ugly... awfully ugly. The Tesla Model S is the only exception, but it's at least twice as expensive than any of the others.
After years of driving sweet looking sedans i just can't see myself driving an ugly little hatchback EVs every car manufacturer is spawning for some reason. Heck, even BMW is making it's EV as ugly as you could possibly design it.
I'll tell you what I would buy:
- A Nissan Sentra, Altima or Maxima with the Leaf's powertrain
- A Chevy Cruze (or Malibu) with the Volt's powertrain, or better with the Spark EV's one (400 lbs/ft OMGtorque)
