The first all electric Nissan LEAF is delivered today in Northern California.
The Leaf is, as Nissan states "A car with no oil, no gas tank, no transmission, no tailpipe.
A car that runs on 100% electricity..." Unlike GM's soon-to-arrive Volt, or Toyota's well-established hybrids, the Leaf has no gasoline engine. As part of the ownership, the purchaser gets a personal "Filling Station" at their home to charge the car overnight. See the video.
Public charging stations for electric vehicles are already in some businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area. A list of charging stations can be found HERE.
Nissan has taken 20,000 reservations for the Leaf. All the major manufacturers (and some you probaly have never heard of) have electric vehicles in development.
