Greenwashing award for the "green" Leaf

The Nissan Leaf has just been named the European Car of the Year.  Think of all those coal-fired electric generation plants hard at work to keep these cars recharged.

Seriously, though, Nissan is more deserving of this honor than was the Chevy Volt for its recent haul of blatantly PC awards from Motor Trend, Automobile, and Green Car Journal -- all timed around the GM IPO (or was it the other way around?).
