The Leaf uses Lithium Manganese batteries (LiMnO2, lithium manganese dioxide), one of the most common Lithium battery chemistries.

He was driving 75 in the car pool lane for about 25 miles, then 60-65 for the rest. I had to pick him up from the Nissan dealer. He had to go there to use their quick charger or he wouldn't have been able to drive home. Not exactly the performance he had hoped for. He's hoping the it was the heater and seat warmers that reduced his range.
