As they continue to work toward a late-2010 launch of an electricity-powered vehicle, Nissan engineers are getting to grips with the finer points of the system.

“How can you make it really simple, a 1-stop shop? One way would be to work with electric companies, have them install (the home-charger) for you (and) roll it into the price of the vehicle,” Dominique says. “(But) maybe you want to pay for it separately. Do you really want to finance your charger for three years?”
