Nissan, what took you so long?

After creating the mass all-electric vehicle market with the groundbreaking Leaf in 2010, Nissan only revised it once in 2017 and did not produce any additional EVs for more than a decade, allowing some competitors to dominate sales with several headline-grabbing affordable EVs in recent years.

“I am a community journalist because that is where the greatest need is. There are many sources of information and opinion about international and national issues. But most people are more affected by what happens in their local communities. That is where they live, work and shop. That is where their children go to school. That is where their elected officials, business owners and labor leaders are most accessible. And that is why people need the most current information what is happening — or, more importantly, what is going to happen — in their communities. Providing accurate and up-to-date information that people need to make well-informed decisions on the issues they care about is what community journalism is all about.”
