Nissan making electric music

The auto maker says Middle Tennessee will be one of the first markets to get its 100-mile-per-charge electric cars late next year.
Mr. Perry said the Nissan, running on a lithium ion battery pack, won’t be a test model. “We’re ready to go mass production and mass sales,” he said. The Nissan official said that while the cost for a conventional vehicle of similar size may range from $28,000 to $30,000, the federal government is offering a tax credit of up to $7,500 on the electric. There also will be other steps to lower the buyer’s initial costs.
On a related note: The NYPD is preparing to put 20 Altima hybrids on the streets.
