ROPAK...You make it sound so simple, but it's not. This is a watershed idea in auto history and Nissan is right. How would you like to be one of the first people that buys a Leaf and your car goes 100 miles on a charge, then 2 years later a battery pack becomes available that triples that. If you don't do it, your vehicle is immediatley worth $5000 less, not to mention the depreciation that you have already experienced, it doesn't work. As this technology grows, it's going to change everything. Just because you've lined up at a gas station all your life doesn't mean that's the way it needs to be.
