Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn (one of the biggest champions of electric cars in the world) recently had the chance to “test-drive” the automated version of the Nissan LEAF at the CEATEC technology exhibition in Japan. He had quite the reaction. 🙂 Check out the video:

In related news, the outspoken CEO recently made the interesting comment that “the explosion of the electric car” would only come once China made strong move in that direction. An interesting comment — it certainly will be interesting to see what happens if/when China starts pushing harder for the technology.

  • Autonomous long-distance drive

    Nissan perhaps wants to be first, but Mercedes seems to be ahead of Nissan. Mecedes joined Google who demonstrated autonomous driving in normal variable traffic.
