The 2011 Nissan Leaf, at first glance, looks a whole lot simpler to service than conventional gasoline cars; there's no flammable liquid in the tank, no motor oil, no complicated multi-speed transmission either.

That said, some dealers are probably feeling a little daunted by the idea of taking a dealership that's configured to sell and service gasoline cars and trucks, and upgrading it to sell and service all-electric vehicles, like the Leaf.

Wouldn't there be some expensive equipment required in the transition? A lot more training required?
