quotes from the Nissan show at ongoing Tokyo motor show 2007:

"in terms of emissions though ultimately it's got to be zero. the only
way to get there soon is with electricity and it's going to come first
in urban commuter vehicles. but as we go all electric we eliminate much
more than emission. many of the limitations to our mobility simply
disappear"
"as we go all electric..." "the all electric era" "and it's coming,
the age of truly sustainable mobility is closer than anyone imagines,
and Nissan is determined to be at the forefront. as we move aggresively
into the age of sustainable mobility I can tell you we are not going to
restrain our passion for performance"

I can't be sure but that sounds big to me : )

Message to Nissan and every other car company planning stuff in the future:
stop talking about it and DO IT.

There is nothing (beyond battery prices) stopping car companies from simply
offering electric powerplant options in their existing vehicles, as long as
they reserve enough space for the battery pack. There is no reason to start
from scratch and spend 3-5 years rolling these out. Instead they are making
seem like it's a huge futuristic R&D effort. There is probably a lot more
engineering that goes into today's computer-controlled gas cars than an
electric car needs.
