39At Witz' End: Turning over a new (Nissan) LEAF

Had lunch the other day with Nissan North America Product Planning Vice President Larry Dominique. He is the point man for communicating Nissan's green-vehicle vision, beginning with its soon-to-come LEAF battery electric car.

At this point, there isn't any useful information posted but the site does give the first concrete hints of what the new car will look like (much better than this drawing).
