Nissan expects increase in EV sales

Nissan believe that 20% of the company’s sales within Europe will be electric vehicles by 2020. This is one of many great aspirations released about the electric car market in recent weeks but is it really feasible?

Well, Japanese companies have a better track record than many of their European counterparts so who are we to question this target? It is also well-known that Far Eastern governments are far more supportive of the electric car market than their European and worldwide counterparts. While we will need to see a relatively quick pickup in sales, the new Leaf battery will certainly help!

Are we starting to see a stronger focus on EVs after the recent scandals?
