These are links to Nissan, Renault-Nissan, and Automotive Energy Supply Corporation (Nissan's battery company - joint with NEC) documents that give the best info yet on the Nissan EV mission, the Leaf, the battery, marketing plans, roll-out locations and too much other good stuff to list. :D

Another Nissan overview slide show from March 2010. This has more pages and shows the 120V charger cord and details of the competing Level 3 Quick Charge hardware.

There is a simple, but interesting, graph under the "Field Test" category that shows mileage per test vehicle. Most of the 20 vehicle's data is missing...but one is out to approximately 150,000 miles. They don't say when this was or why....but a good piece of info just the same.

Apparently a Google account is needed to access these Google-docs.
Are they available "in the wild"?

Hmmm ... I just looked around. There doesn't seem to be a way to make them open to everyone without a gmail id. Anyone knows ?

Otherwise I'll put them in some file upload site.
