I had a surprisingly decent experience at the stealership. The salesman didn't even mention another vehicle, and immediately offered a test drive of the Leaf. I'm still not seeing anything to suggest the Leaf still qualifies for a federal rebate.

As eager as I am to adopt an electric, I'm getting the sense that it's still too early from a financial standpoint.

What do you mean the Fit EV is a compliance car? Does that mean it was only built to comply with efficiency regulations and was never intended to actually bring a profit to Honda?
