Carlos Ghosn Interview On Nissan Leaf Price Cut, EV Sales (Video)
March 13th, 2013 by Zachary Shahan
Here’s a great video from Mr. Energy Czar. He gives a nice intro on EV sales and the transition from gasoline-powered cars to EVs, and then he features an excellent interview with Carlos Ghosn, the CEO of Renault and Nissan.
One of the most interesting comments, I thought, was the emphasis that the $6,000 price cut for the U.S. Nissan Leaf comes from the establishment of the new U.S. factory (which cuts wage, transport, and currency costs), not from artificial company subsidy of the Leaf.
