One of the misconceptions of all-electric cars is that they're toys that aren't intended for the rigors of daily driving; this is exactly the misconception that 2010 Nissan Leaf targets.

The 2010 Nissan Leaf is a five-door sedan that's built to seat five adults comfortably. The zero-emissions electric car has a range of about 100 miles, a top speed of over 87 MPH and the ability to be charged to 80% of capacity in under 30 minutes.

Best of all, perhaps, is the Nissan Leaf's design. Without resorting to cheesy cues that make the eco car look like a smiling bulbous marshmallow on wheels or an automobile out of "Back to the Future," the 2010 Nissan Leaf actually looks like a normal car.
