Ira Flatow takes Nissan's new electric-powered Leaf for a spin around New York City. This car runs on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery--that means no oil or gas. With a new battery, the car can go between 60-130 miles on a charge, depending on the conditions. The car is set to go into production in the next few months. Deliveries will start in December.
