Moderator Note: The OP was misinformed in the post below. The Nissan is not like the BMW i3 EV. Instead it's like the Chevy Malibu, e.g., a very small battery ICE hybrid with no plugin capability.
Nissan is taking a step backwards while GM is taking the step forward. It is going to copy the concept of the iBMW 3 Rex, limping home when the battery rans out. The Chevy Volt has still enormous power even when the battery rans out. Now GM is going the next logical step, the Chevy Bolt EV, a pure electric with no range anxiety at an affordable price. Nissan has gone the other way!

Interesting, a car with an all electric propulsion system but equipped with only a tiny 1.5 KWH battery without a plug.
Wait, the Note e-Power has no plug? That is, indeed, a step backwards. Just like the Malibu hybrid based on Voltec, which should also have a plug.
