Same story in a "local" website:
http://www.sustainablebusinessoregon.com/national/2012/04/savings-slow-to-come-for-hybrid.html


Nissan responded to the NYTimes story and said they should be comparing it
to a BWM 3 series. When you consider the smooth quiet ride, CarWings, and
the Nav system a Versa is NOT the car to compare the Leaf to.
