The Transport Agency is testing the Nissan Leaf this week amid concerns the electric braking system could be failing. There have been more than 50 reports of brake failures in the popular electric car in the United States and Britain. Henrik Moller, of the New Zealand electric car advocacy website Flip the Fleet, says at least five Nissan Leaf's have had brake problems here, including his own.
