“The question we are all a little bit worried about is the fact that electric cars are not taking off in China, while in other markets they are taking off.”
Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn is disappointed by the low demand for EVs in China where the company tries to sell a Leaf-like EV under the Venucia brand. Ghosn does not plan to issue any more models for now, but concentrates on “selling this one” first.
“In the future we think the electricity vehicle could be the big contribution for power systems’ stability, reliability.”
Wang Zhongying, director of the China National Renewable Energy Center, has high hopes for EVs and their batteries that could one day stabilise the grid by storing and releasing energy from renewables.
