Nissan updated the Leaf electric vehicle for the 2018 model year, it is the only electric vehicle currently offered in the US by the brand. Though that is about to change as Nissan plans to roll out several electric vehicles by 2022. Infiniti announced last month at the Detroit Motor Show its plans for its first all-electric vehicle in 2021. Nissan currently sells e-Power (hybrids) in select markets, but Nissan’s corporate vice president for powertrain and EV engineering, Toshihiro Hiraj stated that all-electric EVs, not hybrids will be the way to go in the future.
Meanwhile, Nissan-Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn, who is a big supporter for electric cars has said that EVs need more government incentives, lower development costs, and more lobbying to show the risks of climate change to help steer the consumer to cleaner sustainable energy alternatives.
