I'm sorry this doesn't work for you, but it makes me very happy to hear. I want a lower car, both in ground clearance and in roof height. My Leaf is just plain too tall with several inches of wasted space above my head. All that does is make the car harder to push through the air (killing highway range).
true, if you don't need the height, why push it around. If you like low cars, and are OK with a PHEV, you should check out the Volt....now thats the lowest headroom car I've sat in for a long time! Only way for me to get in is head first and crawl into it Although it had TONS of leg room, with the seat all the way back I couldn't even touch the pedals! Of course that put the rear of the front seat basically touching the seat of the rear seat Almost like the Volt was designed for someone 5' 10" and a 38" inseam
I really like the Volt's form factor, personally. Small, low, sporty. I'm just done with gas. I refuse to buy any other car that uses it. I will keep my current PHEV alive as long as possible - hopefully another 10 years - and then I hope to go 100% electric.
