Cap'n, I have to agree with Elizabeth.  Many of these new technologies (EV, natural gas powered, fuel cell) for which a "fuel" distribution system is not employed are better suited to fleet use in limited geographic area.  As I have mentioned before, a local concrete contractor is converting its fleet to natural (really LP) gas.  Government should also do this.  Especially local government.  They all refuel at their own stations and operate in a limited geographic area.

Smart move from Nissan

This is definitely a smart move for Nissan and a great option for small fleets of cargo vans in cities where pollution and noise from these type of vehicles is a big problem. It's also quite a nice-looking vehicle! This is the way forward for electrics. It shows Nissan really thinking of the best markets for new EVs before it just puts out a new car. Well done, Nissan.
