Video: Tesla’s Elon Musk Not Impressed With Chevy Volt or Nissan LEAF
We’re not inclined to pick a side of the fence on this one, as it’s our belief that all electric vehicles have their place.
However, it seems Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, has a different take.
In general, Musk seems to be implying that the Chevy Volt is a decent vehicle that will forever be compromised by its hybridness.
Whereas the Nissan LEAF (we’d have to assume Musk feels the same way in regards to all of today’s sub 100-mile pure electrics) is too range limited for Musk’s tastes.
But as we’ve previously stated, all of today’s electric vehicles have their place. And most will appeal only to a certain set of buyers.
In the end, it’s the variety that matters. Someday, there will be a perfect electric for every individual. And no, the Model S is not a one-size-fits-all EV.
