Electric DeLorean Foretells Hurdles for Ghosn’s Nissan Leaf Car

Fujii’s 1981 DMC-12 has a lithium-ion battery that takes four hours to charge, so he only drives it on weekends and recharges it at a local workshop. That’s also a hurdle for Nissan Motor Co. Chief Executive Officer Carlos Ghosn, whose electric Leaf, unveiled this month, joins battery-powered designs from Mitsubishi Motors Corp. and Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd.

Nissan’s Ghosn estimates that by 2020, electric vehicles will make up 10 percent of the market — about 65 million units last year. Lack of fast-charging stations on roads and at home is one of the key challenges makers must overcome.

Nissan is working with China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the government of Wuhan city to develop a network of charging stations, it said in April. The carmaker and partner Renault SA aim to sell electric vehicles in China in 2011.
