Polar Bears Selling Cars

I’m a bit late to the party—this commercial was released in the fall—but I was taken aback when I saw it over the weekend. Creating a cutesy commercial featuring a polar bear wandering from his or her arctic home to go hug a Nissan Leaf owner strikes me as offensive to polar bears and the worst kind of greenwashing. Buy a car, save the planet!

Next week we’ll have our local electric car expert give us the latest on the Nissan Leaf vs. Chevy Volt. Is there a clear winner so far in the Hudson Valley? Can you buy one yet in the Hudson Valley? Stay tuned.
