People have been waiting months for the Nissan Leaf to reach their driveway, and the waiting list grows with each passing day. Unfortunately consumers may be waiting longer than they once thought as Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. hinted today that the company may not hit its target of launching U.S. production of the Leaf electric vehicle in December, 2012. The company attributes the potential delay to March earthquake and tsunami.
Statements from the company –
“Because of the earthquake, we in a very difficult situation
“We’re (still) assessing the impact of the earthquake”
“We’re not giving up yet,”
Certainly Nissan will be updating the status as the year progresses.
