Infrastructure will be very important for the Electric Cars, Fast Charging provides the reasonable solution even now, when actual Fast Charging points are few and far between.

Nissa Leaf 24-hour road trip – Click above to watch video after the jump
Some say that electric vehicles aren't suitable for long-distance journeys. Some doubt that advanced lithium-ion battery packs can withstand the torture of several Level 3 charges within a single day.
Here's why those naysayers are wrong: a Dutch duo has driven a Nissan Leaf exactly 1,254 kilometers (779.19 miles) in just 24 hours. The team recharged the electric hatch numerous (our guess is at least 10) times using quick-charge stations during the so-called "24 Hour Electric Vehicle Road Trip." The Leaf didn't falter. No overheating battery. No tow trucks needed.
Want to see for yourself? Hit the jump to catch a video of the pair driving the electric Leaf nearly 800 miles in one single day.
