Ghosn: infrastructure will hold fuel cell vehicles back

Speaking at the Tokyo Motor Show, Ghosn said he didn’t regret the investment the Alliance had made in electric vehicles, despite pushing back its 1.5-million sales target two or three years beyond the original March 2017 deadline, news agency Reuters has reported.

‘Frankly, I don't know how they are going to do it, because knowing all the problems we have, to have a charging system with electricity, where is the hydrogen infrastructure?’ he said. ‘That's why we have postponed, in a certain way, some of our ambitions in terms of fuel cells.’

The Renault-Nissan Alliance is part of a collaborative agreement with Daimler and Ford, formed in January 2013, which had been targeting a production fuel cell vehicle in 2017. Ghosn has yet to indicate how far this has been postponed.
