Two different awards. I believe the one you posted was for European Car of the Year ;)

Nope, nobody's bad. You actually posted something I wasn't aware of that should probably be on Nissanleafforum as well. The article I linked mentioned it but was focused on the NYAS award presentation instead.

Let me know when Nissan figures out how to display an accurate DTE. It exacerbates range anxiety by inaccurately telling drivers how many miles remain, fluctuating like a gasoline car with a bad fuel sender.

I saw a light blue Tesla Roadster just north of Palo Alto abandoned on the side of the road a couple days ago. I suspect we'll be seeing several dead Leaves on flatbed tow trucks as the year progresses.

This half-baked pile of batteries is not a contender for any awards, much less World Car of the Year.

Once they put Wave Disk Generators in these things, they'll be able to go for days. It is the future!
