Nissan is debuting its all electric car, the LEAF, in North America today in Los Angeles. (See the tour schedule.) The LEAF, which will be available in some states in 2010, will be mass produced in 2012. With a driving range of 100 miles, the all-electric LEAF will meet the needs of most commuters. Nissan has partnered with some states and municipalities on the development of an electric-vehicle infrastructure: Tennessee, Oregon, Sonoma County (CA), San Diego, Phoenix, Tucson, Washington D.C., Seattle, Raleigh, and Vancouver. To make electric cars work, you need quality cars, advanced battery technology, and an accessible charging network – Nissan is working on all three.
