Re: Nissan shifts EV strategy to premium vehicles, not ‘discount cars’ like Leaf

If Nissan survives, they will stay in the EV game because EVs help corporate average fuel economy and generate emissions credits to facilitate sales of SUVs and trucks.

Remember, if the volume of the more costly Nissan BEV is less than the present Leaf sales, the EV credits are less.
That's not helpful for offsetting ICEV sales.
