Nissan Leaf Electric Car

Nissan recently announced their new no emissions electric car. Called the LEAF, it is scheduled to be launched in late 2010 in Japan, the United States and Europe. It is a medium-sized hatchback and can seat five adults. Lithium ion cells deliver 100 horses to the electric motor giving a driving range of 100 miles on a full charge with a top speed of 90 mph. Charging time takes approximately 8 hours on a standard 200V outlet. The US market price is expected to be about $30,000 so not a cheapie.
