Tavares Outlines Nissan’s Electric Future

In an address and Q&A session with Detroit Automotive Press Association, Nissan executive vice president Carlos Tavares promised three new plug-ins by 2014, shared some growth projections for the EV market, and offered a few interesting tidbits about early LEAF sales.

Nissan Commercial Electric Van
Expected Release Date: By 2014

Nissan ‘New Mobility Concept’
