    Saw a black Volt just after I left work yesterday. My first confirmed sighting outside a dealership.

    Also saw a red Leaf later yesterday evening, and another red Leaf this morning.

    Saw a white i-MiEV today. Drove by too quickly though and didn't manage to get a picture or see the license plate.

    I see leafs daily in Palo Alto/Moutain View/Sunnyvale. I have seen a volt now and then and I probably see tesla roadsters every week or so.

    I saw a white or silver Leaf in Keene NH last week... I think it was a demo car, but it was still out in the wild well away from any standard test drive loop.

    I finally saw one here in Tallahassee! A blue one! It was on cross street driving away though, so don't know anything more about it. I may have to swing by the Nissan dealer here and get the scoop!

    As some have probably noticed, I've stopped posting Leaf sightings (averaging 2-5 per week now) as well as Volt sightings (have seen a couple since my last post).

    However, a couple weeks ago while driving my son to school I did see an EV worth posting here. A super-narrow one that I have to assume was a Commuter Cars Tango:

    Saw my first Leaf today in Nottinghamshire, UK. It was silver, waiting at some lights and very quiet!

    I have a dual report. I was in the west side of St. Louis, MO yesterday and saw a Volt. Later as I was pulling up to a traffic red light, I pulled up beside a Fisker Karma with MO plates. I couldn't get the camera out quick enough so I gave the guy a thumbs up.

    Still seeing a leaf or two every time I drive more than a few miles in or around Palo Alto. Have to admit I have only seen a few volts in the past *year*. See Tesla Roadsters about once every few weeks. Fisker Karmas are being sold right here in town now.

    Our Coda will be picked up on March 16!

    My wife received this email yesterday:

    Key details as they stand right now are:

    · Vehicle handover on Friday, March 16 at 10am at the CODA Experience Center in Century City. Attendees to include CODA of Los Angeles (company owner yaddah), (someone) from the Experience Center, a member of CODA management and, of course, you! (We will arrange to meet about 30-45 minutes before the ceremony at the Experience Center)

    · The event will be over by 11am

    · Your car is black with leather


    We still have to get final permit on our solar roof, and get a level 2 charger. Pretty excited!

    Still seeing several Leafs per day (as well as another Volt this week), but this weekend I had a different kind of first sighting:

    Wilsonville Nissan is advertising a Leaf at $33,329! That's $1400 below MSRP, and $25.8k after tax credit.
