Why can't eco-cars be sexy?

With the release of the latest electric car from Nissan, I can't help but wonder, why can't there be a good looking eco-friendly car? The newest addition to the green car market is the Nissan Leaf, coming in at $25,000. 

If you're going to dish out that much money shouldn't the car actually look somewhat decent? Who comes up with these unattractive, "you'll never get a date with that car" designs?

The Nissan Leaf just screams granny panties

And why does it seem like every eco-friendly car has a flat front like this Prius?

What was Honda thinking when  they came out with the Insight?

Toyota didn't really step up its game by releasing the Toyota Yaris, because while it may be environmentally friendly, it still looks like a big ball of fluff, in other words, not sexy.

I understand these cars have to be cheap and eco friendly at the same time, but that doesn't mean there should be less effort in designing a car that is visually pleasing.
