Electric Nissan to Have 100-Mile Battery Range


Nissan’s new all-electric car will be sold starting late next year and will have 100 miles on pure battery range. The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported that Mark Perry, product planning and strategy direction said that the car will seat five and that the 100 miles of pure battery range is more than double the battery range of some competitors’ electric cars. While a similar vehicle may range from $28,000 to $30,000 the U.S. government is offering a tax credit of up to $7,500 on the electric car. Perry also said that the annual maintenance costs will be about $1,350 less for a pure electric vehicle than a conventional car. Perry has also said that “The payback is immediate.” This Nissan is estimated to cost about 90 cents to “fill the tank” and will take four to eight hours to do so, which they plan to reduce to four hours in 2012.
