Usually, when we look into the early history of modern electric cars, we see that Tesla and its product lineup that consists of the Roadster, Model S and Model X, is usually regarded as the company that made electric vehicles (EVs) happen and showed the world the massive potential of this technology.

While Tesla is usually portrayed as the maker of cool, fast and long range electric vehicles, there was one more manufacturer that practiced a different approach to battery-powered autos. It was Nissan, with this small EV model, named Nissan Leaf. As years before, when compared to Tesla, the Leaf was lacking in range, smart features and looks, but somehow it managed to shine in terms of sales. Nissan managed to keep the price low and sell a hundred thousand copies of this model and become the ultimate people's car for the city.

With that said, many people were hopeful that other Japanese manufacturers would follow the footsteps of Nissan and start investing heavily in the development of all-electric cars, but somehow it didn't happen. So today, it's hard to understand how Japanese automakers, who were the first to popularize hybrid electric, hydrogen fuel cell and mass market all-electric cars, are not leading the industry today. You can see how their vehicles compare to the EVs currently produced in the US: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIDPlpBtB4M

Despite the fact that through the years Nissan Leaf seems to be the only successful car by Japanese manufacturers, the industry seems to be waking up and showing more seriousness. if you follow the latest car news, some of which we posted here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeYSci69dx4lMHLu-JU8_asnTSvdJ12Fb, you will see that the land of the rising sun has quite an impressive selection of battery-powered cars lined up for the upcoming years.

Here we would like to show the detailed overview of all modern Japanese electric cars by Mazda, Lexus, Honda, and Nissan, as well as intriguing concepts, that are likely to go into production soon. We have listed the prices, information about electric range autonomy and other available specifications to help you understand if Japan is finally serious about EVs.
