Renault-Nissan chief executive officer, Carlos Ghosn is the epitome of enthusiastic when it comes to expressing his love for battery-powered vehicles. CEO Ghosn recently gave a speech at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA that stirred up more talk about electric vehicles.
CEO Ghosn is a mixture of brilliance and chaos, in his anticipation of how big cars with cords will get. The CEO is walking the line of fanaticism.
There is no other car company committing the massive investment in electric cars like us. None. A lot of people are saying they’ll come out with an electric car. But they’re saying 10,000 or 20,000 or 30,000. At this time, no one can match us.
Ghosn confirmed that the Renault-Nissan Alliance will be investing $5.6 billion to build a half a million electric vehicles and batteries at 11 factories in eight countries by the end of 2013. His financial push for electrical vehicles matches his verbal one.
