The new-wave of low-priced electric cars includes entries like the Nissan LEAF, with a net cost under $20,000, and the Honda Fit EV, leasable for $259 per month with $0 down and unlimited mileage. Oddly, however, today’s poll-takers turned up their noses at both those entries—and the entire electric-vehicle segment as well. Some 56 percent of readers wouldn’t buy an electric car of any sort, while the top vote-getter among actual vehicles was the Ford Focus Electric, with 15 percent of the tally. The LEAF did manage to tie the Chevrolet Spark EV and Smart fortwo EV—aka the Smart Electric Drive—but the Fit EV was no go, at the bottom of the list with the Fiat 500e, with 4 percent of the voting.
