The set-up is pretty vague, without any real news.

Wonder if there's any chance CG will announce something hitting the market soon, like LEAF gen 2, perhaps?

Sounds promising. With the slowed delivery of Bolt, the timing could work if they're ready to build them.

I'm not going to subscribe to the WSJ, so would someone tell us what, exactly, was announced? I'm guessing it's more of "Stay tuned!"
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

Hopefully so. I'm really surprised they've taken this long. They are seriously risking losing leadership cred.

Just Google the headline and you'll get around the paywall.

Maybe there'll be two BEV reveals at CES?

Fiat Chrysler Said to Reveal Full Electric Vehicle at CES

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV will reveal a fully electric vehicle based on the Chrysler Pacifica minivan at CES in Las Vegas next month as the carmaker moves to get in step with the industry’s shift toward electric vehicles.

The Italian-American carmaker will show the model at CES, formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show and the world’s largest technology convention, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are private. FCA is also working on an electric Maserati sports car, which aims to compete with Tesla models, the people said. Fiat Chrysler declined to comment.

The two models mark a shift in strategy for Chief Executive Officer Sergio Marchionne, who has been reluctant to invest in electric cars...

Really? You positively know that Nissan's big announcement will be Leaf 2.0 and that it is just a bigger, air-cooled battery?

If so, I think that would be a pretty bad mistake on their part. But that type of announcement doesn't warrant CES venue as opposed to a routine auto show venue.
