Maybe It’s Because They Are Overpriced And Impractical

Meghan McArdle notes that the sales of Nissan Leafs (Leaves?) and Chevy Volts are, uh, slightly below expectations.

If it costs $45,000 to make a car, and the government subsidizes it by $5,000, but you still have to compete against cars with comparable fit and finish, normal car range, and decent gas mileage being sold for $15-20,000, your business model might have a few flaws.  Just a thought.
