2012 Chevy Volt versus Nissan Leaf Mash-up Drag Race
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 plug-in Chevrolet Volt and the new all electric Nissan Leaf are not what most people would consider performance cars. In fact they are designed to get people from point A to point B using the least amount of energy and burning the least amount of oil. If you think about it...in some ways they are the ultimate economy cars but that doesn't mean they can't be fun to drive. To determine which of these two new revolutionary cars is the better performance machine we put them to the test the good old fashioned way: with an electric car drag race. So which one is faster?

How It Feels Going From A Chevy Volt To A Tesla Model S
For the past week, I've been cruising around in a Chevy Volt. But for one day, I got the privilege of driving a Tesla Model S. (And not just any Tesla Model S either. I got to drive the more powerful, higher end Tesla Model S P 85, which starts at $87,070 after a $7,500 federal tax credit.) While the Chevy Volt (base price of $26,685 with a tax credit) and Tesla Model S aren't exactly in the same class, I really liked the styling and performance of the Volt. Not to mention Chevy's offering is a plug-in hybrid — meaning it can run on either electricity or gas. So, what does an extra $60,000 get you in the Tesla Model S that you can't get in the Chevy Volt?
