Vote for Cleantechnica Car of the Year 2019

Our sister site, Cleantechnica, is hosting a vote for its readers to help them select their 2019 electric car of the year. Their choices include a Jaguar, a set of Hyundai/Kia twins (not even the cool one), a cynical cash grab from VW, and a Gas 2 favorite– the 2019 Nissan LEAF e+.

You vote how you want, but I’ll be voting for the little Nissan due to its 5 star safety rating, low cost of admission, proven longevity, easily accessible and nationwide dealer network, and the availability of a great-looking sporty version that won’t break the bank quite as quickly as those quarter-million-dollar Tesla widebody specials that I keep posting about.

Once you’ve made up your mind, the link to vote is here. If you’re not a link guy/gal/whatever, I’ve tried to make voting easier by embedding the SurveyMonkey form, below. So, vote early, vote often, then let us know who you voted for in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
