From the December 1, 2010 Wall Street Journal, an article about 2-seater electric cars for short excursions.  See article here

Nissan Motor Co. released pictures today of an electric concept car called the New Mobility Concept. The tall, two-seat car that resembles a Smart Fortwo, is part of a broad transportation program the car maker is studying, which includes car-sharing and increased mobility for older drivers.

Nissan, which is about to begin selling its Leaf electric sedan later this month, says it is looking closely at the possibilities presented by electric vehicles. The car maker says one proposal under development involves sustainable, efficient and convenient transport tailored for elderly and single households.
More vapor-hype but it sounds like an interesting concept.
