Robert Llewellyn Drives Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn to the Airport in an Electric LEAF (Video)


Heart to Heart Talk About the Future of the Auto Industry
The latest Fully Charged episode is out and this is a very special one. Robert Llewellyn gives a ride to Nissan and Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn, the man who can be considered the father of the electric LEAF and one of the few people that changed the automotive industry by really committing to EVs. The drive was about 20 minutes long, so we get to learn a lot about Ghosn's vision. Sometimes he goes a bit too far, such as claiming that the LEAF is "totally neutral on the environment" (it's not, but it's a big improvement on a gas car, especially if charged from clean power), and sometimes he doesn't go far enough, but it's nice to see that he's enthusiastic and not doing doing this without believing in it.
