............Yokohama, suburban Tokyo............

Some people might just object to that; Yokohama a Tokyo suburb, indeed.

The limitations of these vehicles are obvious but for city-dwellers, businesses operating exclusively in cities, there are major advantages. Electric cars will increasingly become part of an overall power infrastructure along with solar panels and wind power.

Japan’s number two automaker also has plans to release an electric vehicle for the Chinese market, but demand has been disappointing largely due to their short driving range, high prices and a lack of re-charging infrastructure.

Nissan has some smart people on board who really should have predicted that.

It does take alot of electricity to charge the cars, and with Japan's current source of supplying electricity, are we in fact net net getting cleaner air and better environment? We are still far from harnessing solar and wind to levels where we can clearly claim clean energy.
