GM, Nissan End-of-Year Electric Car Sales Reported
DETROIT — It wasn't, by any measure, a flood, but deliveries of the world's first mainstream electric-drive vehicles began last month, marking the beginning of what we expect to be a slow but profound transformation of the global automotive landscape.
General Motors Corp. says it delivered 326 of its Chevrolet Volt extended-range plug-in hybrid sedans, while Nissan Motor Co. tells us it delivered 19 of its groundbreaking battery-electric Leaf hatchbacks to U.S. buyers.
The automakers say that production and deliveries will ramp up now, with GM promising 25,000 Volt deliveries in the U.S. by the end of the year and Nissan shooting for about 15,000 in the U.S. and 25,000 globally by years' end.
