Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt to Win Awards

October 05, 2010

NEW YORK - Popular Mechanics magazine is handing out its annual Breakthrough Awards on Tuesday, Oct. 5, and the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf electric vehicles will be among the winners. 

"It's not the first pure EV, but the Leaf is hitting the mainstream like none of its predecessors," the magazine's Web site said about the Leaf. 

Popular Mechanics described the Leaf as "a pure EV with space for five, a moderate price and enough range for most tasks -- plus, an operating cost that's irresistibly low." 

The Chevrolet Volt also drew praise. The magazine described the Volt as "a series hybrid that augments a battery pack with an onboard gas engine, easing range anxiety and paving the way for EV adoption."
