Nissan Accomplished?

Nissan has shown off a prototype and has issued a press release, the combination of which creates the distinct impression that they'll sell an electric car in the USA by 2010:

The commitment — expected to be announced Tuesday by Nissan’s chief executive, Carlos Ghosn — will be the first by a major automaker to bring a zero-emission vehicle to the American market.
Uh ... yea. Will an actual electric vehicle go up for sale at American car dealerships in 2010, or does this just serve to kick the can down the road some more?

Environmentally-friendly cars and wars in Iraq: everything's going great, just give it another year or two.
