Mark Perry, Nissans North American director of EV and Advanced Technology, was at the 2010 Plug-in conference in San Jose, CA.

We asked Perry why Nissan decided on a 100 mile range.

How long does it take to fully charge a Nissan Leaf using a

110 (level 1 charger?

a level 2 charger?

What is a fast charger? What states are they going in? How long will it take to fully charge a car with a DC fastcharger?

How hard is it to work with utility companies and public/private partnerships for electric vehicles versus selling an internal combustion engine?

What else can the Department of Energy (DOE) sill do?

When does Nissan consider the Leaf mainstream?

Is Infrastructure still a problem?
