Carlos Ghosn Is Alone In ‘All-In’ Position on Electric Vehicles

When Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn starts talking about electric cars, it’s easy to think at least one house on every block in America will have one in a decade or two.

The CEO, who as recently as 2007 was angling to essentially take over General Motors, is almost over-confident about electric vehicles while his peers remain, at best, cautiously even-tempered about the future of EVs.

Nissan’s big EV gambit so far is the Leaf, an EV hatchback that is meant to get about 100 miles on a charge, but for me, only got 80 miles when I tested it last year. Nissan sold just under 10,000 Leafs last year.

“But that was only in nine states (including California),” notes Ghosn. “If we can’t double that this year as we expand production and distribution, then we don’t know what we are doing.” Ghosn said this to a gaggle of reporters in a roundtable interview at the North American International Auto Show this week
