MEMPHIS, TN – It has no tailpipe and you can program it from your I-phone. The "it" in question—the all new, all electric NissaN Leaf.
It’s being built right here in Tennessee and is designed to make driving "green" —as long as you can get where your’re going. It’s the "getting where you’re going" part that could be tricky. Without charging stations all over the place like gas stations—how do you know you’ll be able to get to your destination?

The Leaf supposedly has a range of 150 miles at 90 miles per hour. Sounds great, but what happens when that Leaf runs out of juice?

"For a lot of people there’s a concept of what’s called 'range anxiety'", said Mike Nichols of Wolfchase Nissan.
