Fret not, supporters and buyers of the Nissan electric vehicle initiative! The game is still on.
Nissan has recently dismissed the claims that it was reducing its production of electric vehicles at its plant in Tennessee. In an official statement made by spokesman Travis Parman, as quoted by Industry Week, “The Renault-Nissan Alliance remains 100 percent committed to its industry-leading EV program.”
This zero-emissions brainchild of chief executive Carlos Ghosn has been a global effort to become a leader in eco-friendly vehicles. Through the combined efforts of Nissan and Renault, the Nissan LEAF has become the top-selling highway-capable electric car on the market. As a promotion for LEAF drivers, a 2-year No Charge to Charge program will allow drivers to charge their EVs for free at any of the nation-wide Nissan-installed charge stations. Nissan’s commitment to this initiative is strong and will continue into 2015 and beyond.
What is true is that the Alliance is now examining its strategy for these batteries, possibly moving its battery production from the US and England to the plant in Korea. Whether this will happen or not is still not set in stone, but the amount of production will definitely not see any cuts in the imminent future.
