I agree, but i guess i imagined something simpler. Like the shear compatibility cross platform to be able to upgrade your FIT to a FIT EV overnight or in the opposite direction. Not just being parts compliant across their different brands. But i guess that's not how the auto industry works. The GM Ultralight had an easily removable and swappable powertrain plus wheel assembly all in one unit. Selling a powertrain instead of a car would be nice. Conversions would -easier- on any car, which isn't to say we aren't at that point already. If only you could buy the guts of a Leaf from a dealership...

From what i've read the FIT EV beats the pants off of the Nissan Leaf.
I try to be helpful. I'm not an expert.
