150 Mile Nissan Leaf?

Ever since I bought my Nissan Leaf in 2011, I have been on their survey list. They send out occasional questionnaires.  What do you like, what could be better... The usual stuff.

A survey question is far from a product commitment, but it shows that Nissan is thinking about their next gen longer range EVs.

So GM and Tesla are not the only ones that will be fighting for the affordable long range EV. Nissan has a head-start over both of them in the affordable pure-EV market space and they are not going to give it up easily.
