Government <=================================> Business

Keep the two apart, for Christ's sake. The government mentality cannot run a successful business 999 times out of 1000.

Nissan Leaf. Around 30k new, advertised 100 mile range. Best of all, not made by GM.

It will have at least one.


But will it catch on fire hours after a wreck? It's a feature.
