Nissan Will Answer GM’s Bolt EV

On the heels of the launch of the new Chevrolet Bolt EV, The Detroit Free PressĀ brings us a snippet on Nissan’s response:

Japanese automaker Nissan plans to introduce an electric vehicle with similar range to General Motors’ Chevrolet Bolt and Tesla Motors’ Model 3.

Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn told reporters today at the Detroit auto show that Nissan is also planning an electric car with similar range as the Bolt concept’s 200 miles.

He said the introduction of the Bolt “was not a surprise.”

“Obviously we will be competing” with electric cars that get 200 miles on a battery charge, he saidā€¦He added: “Generations of EVs coming are going to get better, less costly, lighter, more autonomous.”

 

Nissan is working on a new version of the Leaf, currently scheduled to debut in 2017.
