New electric car

We bought a new car. A 2013 Nissan Leaf. Red.

It's cool. And fast. And red. And 100% electric.

Norway has the most electric cars per capita in the world. They are so popular that it took 9 weeks for our car to arrive. Norway is really pushing electric; they're giving lots of incentives for people to buy them. There is no yearly registration fee (which is expensive), parking is free, tolls on the highway are free, ferries are free, you can drive in the taxi/bus lanes, and there are free public charging stations everywhere.

Pam is very happy to finally have a "grown-up" car.

  2. Wow, 9 weeks to get a car, but I am sure it will definitely be worth it. I've been hunting for a new car recently here in the States, and have been thinking about going electric, since it's so much better for the environment, and a lot cheaper than spending 3 bucks a gallon for gas!
