Electric vehicles have been hyped before as the car of the future, but 2010 could be the year plug-in vehicles finally take off.

Nissan will deliver 1,000 of its zero-emission, five-passenger Leaf hatchbacks to Valley and Tucson buyers in December. Other carmakers, including Tesla Motors, with its high-performance sports car, and Chevrolet, with a four-passenger Volt, are hustling to get more electric cars on American roads as acceptance grows and the technology accelerates.
