Nissan announces plans for charging stations

Despite the fact that many people are still sceptical of the electric vehicle market, Nissan has this week announced plans to triple the number of charging point across America. This is a significant commitment by one of the largest car manufacturers in the world and should instil some confidence into this particular market.

There is no doubt that consumers are warming towards electric vehicles and if we were in a “traditional” economic situation, as opposed to a worldwide downturn, it is likely that sales would be significantly higher. The introduction of further charging points will make a massive difference to consumer sentiment towards the electric vehicle market and should lead to further growth in the short to medium term.

Times may be hard in the automotive industry but the electric vehicle market is not dead!
