Cars that run on hydrogen from water.

And where will hydrogen come from smarty pants?

i hope that by then, the electricity used to run the cars won't come from coal-fired power plants and other non-renewable sources. otherwise, it would defeat the purpose.

It's misleading to call electric cars "zero-emission". The electricity has to be produced.

This Ghosn guy says "gonna" a lot.

Still, if Ghosn says they're gonna do it, I believe they're gonna. I'm gonna be watching the news on August 2nd. Where youse guys gonna be?

Q:What do you call a guy who's had his ride stolen?

A: Carlos

If any company is gonna manufacture a practical electric car, Team Ghosn has a good a chance as the other biggies. I researched his 350Z and GTR - risky, cost efficient, bold and practical. Those are characteristics needed during these times. He knows the big obstacles to his goal is battery weight and capacity - he may be able to make an electric car that would be the primary car - Nissan have the R&D to make it. This would be a challenge for CEO Ghosn.

Ghosn has big plans. Let him realize these first before dismissing the market share of hybrid vehicles.

If Carlos can do an affordable electric car, that can make Nissan number two of J and make the hybrid tech look obsolete.

I just realized that if I had a stake in the Prius, I would not be able to say much on other auto companies. I could ONLY help Toyota.

I hardly think that a well educated CEO will be spouting the words 'gonna' into his speeches. As bastardised English goes, that is up there with the worst. Perhaps he should go to one of the English schools for a brush up, help them out too. Though I suspect that what they teach there would make it even worse!!

A huge IF. Actually highly unlikely.
