Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn is still really, really bullish about the Leaf electric car

May 31st, 2010

Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Nissan, AutoblogGreen Exclusive



Every time we hear Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn speak, he kind of bowls us over with his strong belief in the all-electric Leaf and plug in vehicles in general. At the groundbreaking for the Smyrna, Tennessee battery plant last week, he once again expressed complete enthusiasm for electric vehicles (EVs). Yeah, we weren't surprised, either, but it was still good to hear this much hasn't changed. Here's how Ghosn described the Leaf in its current state:
Just last week, I drove the Leaf to confirm its performance and I can tell you this is a car for the 21st Century. It's a roomy five-seater with a spacious trunk. Its IP system gives the driver useful information, not just about the car, but connecting the car to its environment, acceleration is immediate, stability is great, driving is a pleasure. On top of all of this, we have the quiet, clean, eco-friendly benefits of a zero-emission car.
Don't just ask Ghosn, though. He said the people are speaking up in favor of the car in big ways. On top of the 13,000 Leaf reservations, which exceeds Nissan's available Leaf production capacity this fiscal year, 130,000 people have registered their interest in a Leaf. Online is where it's at, Ghosn said:
The Nissan Leaf is creating a class of its own, and customers are ready to receive it. One signal of its excitement is on Facebook, where more than 54,000 people "like" the Nissan Leaf. In fact, more people like the Leaf than any other environmentally friendly car sold today, and this is before our first sale.
Well, we guess that's nothing, something. Read on after the jump to learn more about the man who doesn't stop giving EVs their due and why he'd much rather you lease the Leaf battery than buy it.
