So, could a Leaf be viable enough transportation on the Island to make it worth selling on the Island?

Hey just to chime in on this thread.

We're actually selling LEAFs right now and people like them.

The car is a lot more than a juiced up go-cart.

It's a perfectly functioning sub-compact car. The acceleration is great because you get 100% torque all the time with an electric motor.

That being said because of the range, it gets up to 136 miles in perfect conditions, it's not for everyone. If you're looking to replace your family's fleet of cars with a LEAF its the wrong choice.

That being said we were told the target demographic is early adopters who care about the environment and their status. (One of the quotes was "everyone has a Prius I need something more unique")

Haha, that being said I'm glad I made this thread. It's helpful to see what people's preconceived notions about a product are.

Eric

So the demographic is a bunch of nitwits with too much money and too little sense? Sounds about right.
