Q: When will this car be available at dealerships?
A: It will be on the road in some markets (CA, OR, WA, AZ, TN, NC) in 2010, with more states to follow.
Q: Will there be multiple options on how/where to charge up?
A: Absolutely. You'll be able to charge at home, at work and at stations along your route.
This is gonna be pretty sweet. Now that the Nissan North American headquarters has moved out here to Franklin (specifically, the next exit past my office), I'd say it's a virtual guarantee that there will already be electric charging stations in the area by the first day these go on sale.
Plus, take into account the tax credits that go into effect on January 1, 2010, and this car will probably be one of the most affordable vehicles on the road inclusive of traditional internal combustion vehicles.
Plus, PLUS, since Middle Tennessee's electric power is hydroelectric, we'll be one of a select few places where this car truly produces zero-emissions.
Now, if they can only make it a little... better looking :)
