Excerpt:

The changes in the revamped model, shown Tuesday at a Tokyo hotel, were based on feedback from owners whose chief worry was running out of electric juice while driving, Nissan officials said. Electric cars emit no pollution, but they need to be recharged. Owners have charging equipment installed at home. But the scarcity of recharging stations on the roads has limited electric vehicles use to short commutes and kept zero-emission cars confined to a market niche. The new model can travel 142 miles on a single charge, up from 124 miles as long as you don’t use air conditioning, because of improvements such as streamlining the battery system and the vehicle’s lighter weight, according to Nissan. It sells for less than 2.
