The above response ignores the fact that many locations in the U.S. do not have sufficient public transportation, and that automobiles are essential for most people to get around, especially the elderly and disabled, and others who cannot conceivable ride a bicycle for all of their transportation needs.
The Nissan leaf claims a range of 100 miles on a single charge, which is not as high as some other electric concept models, but is still sufficient for the daily needs of 80% of the world’s motorists. The fast charge capabilities of the Leaf allow the battery to be charged to 80% capacity in 30 minutes, and an even shorter ten-minute charge can add over 30 extra miles of range. There may be some problems with its overall range and performance, but the electric Nissan Leaf is still a more green option than any conventional gas-powered car.
The elderly and disabled can and do take public transit, and in areas where there is insufficient transit there are specialty programs to pick up the slack. Where I live about 10% of the bus ridership is technically a senior or disabled, if not more. The problem is that many areas are still using old buses that are not disabled/elderly friendly.
