Nissan Wants To Sell A Million Electric Cars Per Year
Nissan has presented its ambitious plan concerning sales of electric vehicles. The carmaker says that it intends to bring the annual sales volume of green cars to one million.
The company is ready to reach this figure by 2022. The Leaf is the locomotive of sales. In addition, Nissan produces a lineup of electrical models that use an e-Power system. Here, the electric powertrain is the source of the driving force, and the battery pack is charged from a small pertol engine.
