That's good news to me hearing there might be more factory jobs, hopefully some at entry level, in a poor state like Mississippi.

And though I am not sure what the overall energy expenditure to build them will be, at least electric vehicles do NOT spew toxic exhaust fumes, adding to already bad environmental conditions.

Hopefully Nissan will find ways to produce clean energy to power this facility.

Bad day for Musk, but as he doesn’t pay tax in the USA, maybe not so bad. The more electric cars, the more charging stations.

I don't know about the quality of Tesla cars but as an owner of Nissa cars since 2006, the quality is average. Especially here in Japan the after sales value is so low. The cars look nice but take a peep at places that out of reach of the eyes and you will see alot of cutting corners, with poor finishes and cheap materials.

Nissan is still alive?

Hopefully the more electric cars, the more opportunities for new businesses to start up, and the more new jobs created.

Hopefully new technologies and new businesses will come along to provide any additional electricity that might be needed.

It will be nice to see whether so-called market capitalism can actually meet the needs of the public and move away from the petrochemical industry's oligopolies and monopolies that have restricted competition, with the aid of governments at all levels throughout the fossil era.

And also nice to think the globe's fossil barons will not have the same amount of control over the planet, and that more of us might have additional opportunities to free ourselves from their grips.

In time, not now though.

That would be good if and when that happens.

Not in the near foreseeable future but one day perhaps. Keep hope alive.

Well, that is a long and far off dream that none of us will see in this lifetime see.

Hope this is successful. Nissan is the most advanced as far as ev goes out the Japanese automakers.

Just found a used Model X, will sign the paper work tomorrow. Wife won't let me go out with gas prices so high, but takes the GLE to Aoyama 3x a day when she should be walking hahaha. Oh well.

When the EV GTR launches I may look at one to replace my GT3 RS.

All companies are shifting to electric. The needs for battery related metals are huge

Thank you Nissan.

We had a Datsun when we got married. It ran, and ran, and ran.
