A Nissan Leaf car runs on a road during an electric car rally from Tallinn to Monte-Carlo, near Tallinn June 1, 2012. The rally lasts for 10 days, during which electric cars will cross 10 countries and cover a distance of more than 3300 km (2050 miles). According to Nissan, the Leaf's expected all-electric range is 160 km (100 miles). It uses a 80 kW (110 hp) front-mounted synchronous electric motor to drive the wheels and powered by a 24 kilowatt-hours lithium ion battery pack.
