Case Closed

Something like a Volt, despite being simply an overweight, overpriced Cruze, maybe, but straight electric - nope.

Long-term Nissan Leaf update: Hey, buddy, can you spare a plug? - AutoWeek Magazine:

"If you have an electric car, you have to plan out longer trips on Mapquest or Google Maps to make sure they're doable. It's math so simple even I could do it. But didn't."
and ... drumroll

"The lesson here? Just as you can't or shouldn't bring a knife to a gunfight, don't try to go farther than your EV can go on a charge. At least unless you are sure there's a 240-volt charger somewhere on your route with a J1772 plug."
