Imagine the EV1 repowered even with plain ol' Leaf batteries.

When the EV1 got upgraded to its NiMH cells it had about 26 kW-h of energy aboard and had 160 miles worth of range. A new Leaf is carrying 30 kW-h, and the pack weighs less than half as much. Now drop that kind of capacity into the EV1 with its ultra-slippery profile and I can only guess what its range might do. 250 miles doesn't sound wrong.
