would you expect him to say something different? :ugeek:

Do you think he would approve of such a design if he didn't think they were charming ?

I think it looks like a weenie car, I strongly feel that Nissan should make the concept car called the Invitation into the next gen Leaf. The only reason I leased one is price and gas savings, I really don't care about recognition of driving a eco friendly car, another thing about the car is that it has disproportionately more front overhang than rear, honestly when I'm done with the lease it's either going to be the Nissan Invitation or a used 350 or 370Z for me, unless we get a EV 370Z, hint hint Nissan! Are you reading me?

It's definitely a polarizing design, but it turns heads one way or another :) I'm mostly content with the design, glad it doesn't look like a golf cart.

No! It would be best if we always agreed! :-)
Surely, you jest. What a bland, monotonous world it would be.

When I first got my Leaf, a few of my friends thought it was a glorified golf cart. All I had to do was put the pedal to the metal when the light turned green so they would realize "This isn't your father's EV." :lol:

I can live with how the headlights *look* but the high beams are functionally pretty terrible on the non-LED cars. Happily, the low beam is great. The only positive thing I can say about my high beam is it isn't even bright enough to attract moths to dive into the car...

They aren't any better on the LED cars... Easily the worst high beams I have seen on a car in decades...

Nissan, Please leave it as it is! I like my Leaf-frog!

That's how cool cars of the past looked :)

Now popped eyes are coming back! :)

We lease a Leaf, we like the headlights. If you want a different looking car, don't get a Leaf. Easy!
