Here it is, folks: the all-electric car Nissan plans to start selling next year, shown for the first time at an event this evening in Yokohama, Japan (and simultaneously unveiled on the automaker’s web site). Called the Nissan LEAF, it’s a five-seat hatchback set to roll out in the U.S., Japan and Europe in 2010 at a price that the company says is “comparable” to a mid-size family sedan, and with a range of more than 100 miles. What do you think?
