Actually it was based on a later Reuters article from Sep 15. Andy went to Ashton on Sep 3.

It is somewhat naive to think auto companies plans change on a dime and whatever the earlier executive said is null and void now. That is not how corporations work.

You're naive to how the auto industry operates. Projects are begun and ended abruptly on whims of executives regularly.

Ofcourse, everyone knows that. But that may or may not have anything to do with an executive leaving a company.

To assume whatever Andy said is no longer valid because he left Nissan is faulty.

Nissan is doing everything that can to ensure that I never buy another of their vehicles...

The cancellation is probably a wise move, though. Luxury marques make money on ICEs, and the low gas prices gives Infiniti a window of opportunity to capitalize. It's sad for those who want an EV, but it looks like a good business decision to me. If they still do a Leaf which does that kind of high range, making a 2018 or 2019 model Infiniti which can use it would probably be doable.

I suspect that the fact they burned through nearly half of their allowed tax credits for EV purchases had something to do with this decision.
