Default Ghosn Not Worried About March Sales

Interesting article at GreenCarReports.com

Gotta love that Ghosn is unphased by March Leaf sales which were only about a quarter of the Volt sales. Ghosn has this interesting comment.

Quote:
Ghosn said Leaf sales will soar once U.S. production of the cars begins in Smyrna, Tennessee. He said that would happen "this summer," though a Nissan representative confirmed that battery production starts in September and Job One for U.S.-built 2013 Nissan Leaf models is scheduled for this December.

That "localization" will let Nissan reduce Leaf costs considerably, Ghosn said, though he gave no details on possible price cuts for the 2013 models that will roll off the lines in Tennessee.
If Nissan is able to cut the price of the Leaf even further that definitely makes things interesting
