    Doug Wells is used to big volume dealerships. Good thing. He just took over Nalley Nissan of Atlanta, a 72,000 square foot, $20 million enterprise that is Nissan’s new prototype look and attitude for its dealerships. And he doubled his volume in the first month.

    “My first big volume store was in Atlanta 12 years ago and we went from selling 100 new cars to 400 per month and then I went down to Jacksonville, Florida, and increased our sales about 130 percent. Nissan’s programs are all about volume. As a general manager you have to have your people believe  in you. Then you have to, as a manager, find the motivation for each person. What do they want that will make themselves push harder?”

    There’s some good news and some not-so-good news. The Volkswagen e-Golf SE is a terrific car. The not-so-good news is that it’s not sold in Georgia.

    Or hopefully, not yet. Calls to local dealers say they keep asking for it but so far it’s only in the Northeast and Pacific coast states — or the usual suspects for a top-of-the-line but reasonable electric car. Anyway, it’s a shame because the e-Golf SE is a terrific 100 percent electric car that gets 83 miles to a charge, which is better than some of its competitors. The car can be charged at home with an available 240V wall box, at any Charge Point or public charging stations.

    When we think of Jeeps, it conjures up thoughts of freedom, fun and for us, the beach. So it was entirely appropriate that we took a Jeep Renegade Trailhawk 4x4 to Myrtle Beach for a quick weekend getaway.

    The Renegade is exactly what we wanted. The smallest of the Jeeps, the Renegade, was agile for weaving in and out of traffic and had sharp steering and enough power when we floored it on the highway. And, we looked cool when driving. While we didn’t use the 4x4 capabilities and go off road, we looked that long stretch of beach and imagined taking a spin on the sand. The Renegade’s new look is tall and upright with details that are anything but subtle with a touch of military, a nod to Jeep’s heritage. The headlights feature a seven-bar grille, the wheel arches are large and trapezoid-like and inside the dashboard and console features are large, easy to use and pop out proudly.
