Nissan to Sell Electric Car, No Battery

Buy the car, sign the battery lease.

Carlos Tavares, Nissan Motor Co.'s executive vice president for product planning and design, held out a vision of a future where consumers buy electric vehicles separately from the batteries, and share access to cars.

"At Nissan, we believe that one day, zero emissions will be a precondition of entry in the automotive business," he told the Automotive News Green Car Conference and Exhibition today. A dramatic shift in vehicle ownership patterns will accompany that move away from internal combustion engines, he said.

"Our grandchildren may never believe we owned cars, not to mention that they had tailpipes," Tavares said.

Nissan plans to launch its first all-electric vehicle in select markets in 2010. It will roll out globally in 2012.

Nevermind, I must be really tired.

I had this vision of businessman in Japan carrying around a battery and then they just find like a communal empty car, stick their battery in and drive away...

I've heard that GM might do the same with the Volt
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them

Not a bad idea. Once that battery goes, everyone wants out of their electric cars. But, how can we sell them more....for keep them in the car? ....putting the batter on lease is not a bad idea. Strange to finally be talking about it, but works none the less.
