So who was shooting the video and will the video be released so that those of us who couldn't attend can still see the meeting?

Did they answer any of Chelsea's compiled questions, or was this really just a PR move? Not impressed if just a PR stunt.

Well, you guys are quick to dismiss without having heard a word. Yes, it is PR. That's your modern world. But, many of you may be interested to know that both of those speaking (Andy and Billy) personally drive a LEAF at home.

Many of the modifications to the 2013 were direct results of user input. The North American battery does have a slightly different chemistry than Japan (sorry, no hard tech data).

I found everybody involved from Nissan to be quite personable and seemingly forthright. Of course, that doesn't mean they gave away state secrets or said something that the legal department told them not to say. That's also the modern world.

Still no price on the battery and no hard printed capacity warranty. Expect both in the comings months.

I must give them credit for coming to a potentially hostile crowd and stating their case. They could just as easily hide behind Press Releases and let the lawyers handle the fallout.

Chelsea's list of compiled questions was skipped entirely. They started out by making their own statements about 3 main areas of concern then moved directly into taking questions from the audience.

I would like to hear Chelsea's take on this meeting. I enjoyed the camaraderie, but the meeting was not what I was expecting !

Is there a way to get rid of the OK accept each time you enter the car?
The 6.6kW charger is optional on the stripped model, also a display is optional so you dont have to stare at that Ok question if you choose the stripped model
