    Shorter range EVs work well in Japan where they have ubiquitous CHAdeMO fast charge. You just do frequent 10 or 15 minute fast charges to drive indefinitely around the country.

    In Japan there are currently two trim levels available...

    Indeed with all the Chademo charge points all over the place you can pretty much go anywhere in Japan in both the iMiev and Leaf without much problem. The Japanese expressway system has embraced Chademo and is installing charge points at highway service areas which are generally spaced out at about 10 mile intervals on an extensive network of roads which connect all major cities. Tesla has put up close to 30 HPC's around the country as well, but unfortunately to get to them you need to exit the highways and drive a least several miles and sometimes more to get to them.
