Are Electric Cars Finally Ready to Breakout?
The nascent electric vehicle market marked an important step forward when Nissan Motor Co. announced Friday it will roll out its Leaf car Dec. 20, but zero-emission cars have to overcome many hurdles before they become widespread.
"We believe this will be the beginning of the new era for the world's automobile industry, as well as a sustainable low-carbon society," Nissan Chief Operating Officer Toshiyuki Shiga said.

Shiga emphasized that the Leaf has gotten off to a good start, with 6,000 already on order — Nissan's initial sales target for the 2010 business year.
