In Detroit, Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn said he expects Leaf sales to again grow this year, though sales in 2012 were less than half the car’s original projections. The Volt, on the other hand, more than tripled its sales from 2011, while the Prius PHEV sold nearly as many as its plug-in rival in its first year on sale.
