Really? How many Senate seats did they lose? Did the House flip? Or do you believe that state Governors control US tax policy?


It's not a stretch to assume the congressional leaders see the Virginia results as a broader sign that voters are against these policies. It's also debatable. Unfortunately they care more about self-preservation than sticking than their principles.

I personally believe nothing will happen with this bill until spring 2018 anway.

Sunderland has fired up, right on schedule, and the 2018 LEAF is now in production on three continents.

With their superior DC infrastructure, and generally shorter driving-range requirements, It would not be very surprising if 2018 LEAF sales in Europe surpass those in North America.

Production begins of the new Nissan LEAF in Europe

Production of the all-new Nissan LEAF, the next generation of the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, is officially underway for European customers.

With the first new LEAFs now rolling off the line at Nissan’s plant in Sunderland, UK, the countdown has now started to the first customers receiving their vehicles in February.

Embodying Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility vision and already winning international awards for innovation and technology, this new model has been reinvented to offer greater range, dynamic design, advanced driver assistance technologies and enhanced connectivity.

Kevin Fitzpatrick, Nissan Europe Divisional Vice President for Manufacturing, said: “Nissan led the way in introducing electric vehicles to Europe in 2011, and every year since then it’s been clear that more and more customers share our vision for the future of driving.

“We're excited to start production in and to bring the new Nissan LEAF to European markets from February.”

The new Nissan LEAF offers an improved range of 378km* on a single charge, allowing drivers to enjoy longer journeys, interconnected by the extended European CHAdeMO Quick Charging network...

PR doesn't mention how long it will take to deliver ~10 k LEAFs...

The acceleration of electrification: 10,000 European customers have ordered the new Nissan LEAF in two months

Nissan has built upon the experiences and feedback of 83,000 LEAF drivers to develop a brand new vehicle.

That car – the all-new Nissan LEAF – has received unprecedented interest from customers since its European unveiling in October 2017. In two months, 10,000 have been ordered across the region and growth is expected to increase as the vehicle starts to hit showrooms from February 2018.

At the same point back in 2010, orders for the original LEAF could be counted in the hundreds as customers were presented with this new and exciting – but still unproven – technology.

Gareth Dunsmore, Director, Electric Vehicles, Nissan Europe, commented: “We are delighted by the tangible customer interest we have received for the new LEAF as it confirms the leadership Nissan has in electric vehicles. However, the new LEAF is not just our new generation electric vehicle, but also the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility in Europe.”

Since its global unveil in Japan in September, consumer interest and momentum for new LEAF has built steadily across Europe. In early October initial vehicle specifications and pre-sale pricing were released at Nissan’s Futures 3.0 event in Oslo, Norway. Since then, customers have been able to place orders for new LEAF through their local Nissan retailer.

To date, customer interest in the new LEAF has been stimulated through positive media coverage. The car has been praised for the host of new innovations and technologies it brings, including Nissan ProPILOT driver assistance technology, and Nissan e-Pedal, which when activated allows the driver to reduce use of the brake pedal by up to 90%.

Impressively, the 10,000 customer orders have been taken without new LEAF being physically available in Nissan retailers for test drive, and without direct consumer advertising and promotion...

1,912 LEAF sales put it well ahead of the PIP in Japanese deliveries last November.

Toyota will win first in "electric" sales for 2017, but 2018...?

Japan November 2017

...If the 2017 Best Seller trophy is certain to go to Toyota and its Prius PHV, thanks to 25.000 units, obliterating all previous records, providing the brand's second award, adding to the 2012 trophy, for the 2018 edition, the Toyota nameplate wil have a much harder task at hand, as the Nissan Leaf is said to have a 30-45k sales target for Japan alone...

Sounds like LEAF one sold something over 290 k in total by the end of production, and LEAF two will soon hit five-figures.

Nissan delivers 300,000th Nissan LEAF

The Nissan LEAF is the best-selling electric vehicle in the world


YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan announced today that the company has sold its 300,000th* Nissan LEAF globally since the model first went on sale in 2010.

The 100% electric LEAF is the world's first mass-produced – and also the world's best-selling – electric car.

Nissan launched a fully redesigned version of the LEAF in September 2017. Drivers will feel more confident, excited and connected thanks to the car's ProPILOT (ProPILOT Assist in the U.S.) technology, ProPILOT Park technology, e-Pedal, increased power and range, and improved refinement, comfort and convenience.**

"These numbers prove that the Nissan LEAF remains the most advanced car in the world, with the widest reach and the greatest availability," said Nissan Executive Vice President Daniele Schillaci. "The new Nissan LEAF is the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility because it delivers an even more exciting drive and enhanced ownership experience and contributes to a better world. It will take Nissan's EV leadership even further." ...

* 293,744 units as of the end of November 2017

Nissan LEAF Sales In Japan Hit New Record In 2017 (Nearly 8,000 In 3 Months)

The new Nissan LEAF became the 27th best-selling full size car in Japan last month, hitting a solid 2,306 sales (up 87% year-over-year).

After the introduction of next generation LEAF in October, Nissan achieved almost 8,000 sales in three months – which was 46% of total LEAF sales for the year.

Hopefully, the new LEAF will enable at least a doubling of sales in 2018 in Japan, to some 25,000-30,000 units....

Success in Japan suggests world-wide LEAF sales could reach five-figures-per-month in the near future:

2018 Nissan Leaf sales recover in Japan

Nissan has finally recovered from the inspection scandal.

In Japan first deliveries of the new 2018 Nissan Leaf begun in October last year. In the debut month 3.629 units of both the new and outgoing models were sold in total, but in the following two months sales declined due to an inspection scandal.

Anyway, now inspection problems seem to be in the past and last month Nissan was able to sell 3.768 units of the Leaf in Japan – making a total of 11.615 units sold since the new model’s debut month. Furthermore, the Nissan Leaf was the 19th best selling passenger car in that country last month.

Now that first deliveries are also happening in Europe and the USA, it’ll be interesting to see which market will surpass the Japanese sale figures first...

USA 2018 LEAF inventory has increased from 0 to almost 1 k in only a few weeks, BTW.

CG reiterates his claim that the N/R/M Alliance leads the industry in BEV profitability,

For all the disappointment of the Gen two 2018 LEAF utilizing the same platform of the 2011-2017 LEAF, this probably allowed a huge savings in development and production costs that may allow Nissan to blow by the ZEV credit limit in LEAF production numbers which seem to be constricting most money-losing BEV manufacturers, like GM with the Bolt.

Carlos Ghosn: 'We're probably the only carmaker who's starting to make money selling electric cars

The auto alliance between Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi is probably the most advanced and profitable carmaker when it comes to producing electric cars, the company's CEO told CNBC Friday.

The alliance, which started work on electrification back in 2008, announced September that it is going to produce 12 new electric cars within the next five years. Speaking to CNBC, Carlos Ghosn, the chief executive officer, said that it takes time to make money out of electric cars but the French group has mastered the business.

"We are probably the most advanced carmaker in terms of costs of electric cars and we have announced already in 2017 that we are probably the only carmaker who's starting to make money selling electric cars," Ghosn said...

First full month of sales in Europe reported:

Leaf Amazes in Records Storm

...#1 Nissan Leaf – Simply Amazing. The 2.0 version of the most popular plug-in in the world had its first full deliveries month in Europe last March and by registering 6,053 units, the Nissan hatchback recorded the second best result ever in Europe for a plug-in, and with the orders list at over 15,000 units, expect the Leaf to remain at around 5,000 units in the coming months, limited only by the Sunderland production capacity. But back to March, the main markets were Norway (2,172 deliveries, new all-time record for a single model), UK (1,500), France (719), Germany (346) and the Netherlands (299)...
