That sounds very good, but I am a bit skeptical about the 150-miles statement. You have to remember, that Nissan started advertising the Leaf pre-release with a 100-miles range promise, which turned out to be around 80 EPA rated miles. So when they talk about 150 miles range, they may very well mean only 50% larger battery than the current Leaf, i.e. 36kwh giving an EPA rated ~120miles. It is still better, but not quite the same thing.

IMHO, to make a BEV a full solution and not limited to local city-driving commuter vehicle, it needs 2 things:
1. At least 200 miles range on highway speeds
2. Fast charging system that is no more than 30-40 minutes
If these two capabilities exists, then the car can be used for road trips if fast charging infrastructure is sufficient along the route.

Currently, Tesla is the only car that has these capabilities. A 150-mile Leaf would still not be enough…
