ok, I'll say it: if Ghosn was still CEO of Nissan they would have been the first to partner with Tesla...not the last (assuming the inevitable).
Mixed news. End of the charging connector war looks likely. Ending the connector war is a good thing. Some of the implications are not good.SageBrush wrote: ↑Thu Jun 08, 2023 4:51 pm https://www.npr.org/2023/06/08/11811660 ... etwork-evs
Fantastic news, and it did not take long. Perhaps M. Barra is not as dense as she seems
Poor Nissan. They finally ditch CHAdeMO ... for the losing competitor.
If Ghosn had been running things, Nissan would still have the global lead in sales, and I would be driving an electric Frontier. Well, my guess anyway. The way Nissan threw away a global lead on one of the most important tech changes of the past 50 years is pitiful. Certainly will make a good case study in someone's economic curriculum--how not to run a global car maker.Stanton wrote: ↑Fri Jun 09, 2023 6:24 amok, I'll say it: if Ghosn was still CEO of Nissan they would have been the first to partner with Tesla...not the last (assuming the inevitable).
Nissan went from an EV leader (with Ghosn) to an EV follower (without Ghosn). I still love my Leaf, but it's probably the last Nissan car I'll ever buy.
I suggest instead a thread consolidating all the charger infrastructure universe transition to NACS. We can cover manufacturers, installers, port conversions, and adapters.cwerdna wrote: ↑Fri Jun 09, 2023 6:29 pm Maybe I'll start another thread about this:
https://twitter.com/ABBNorthAmerica/sta ... 2830041091 says that ABB is adding NACS as an option on their products. ABB makes many models of DC FCs.
