Nissan not in hurry to launch a fuel cell powered car

Tokyo Motor Show is still open and visitors can see hydrogen cars from Honda and Toyota, as well as concept cars from Lexus and Daimler. But, what about Nissan ? The CEO, Carlos Ghosn, still appears reticent about the technology. But, in a interview with Automotive News, he said that Nissan is developing a fuel cell car. The point is that this model won’t be launched before 2020, as the company is “not in a hurry”.

Nissan believes it is “too early” to launch a fuel-cell.

Ghosn said Nissan is not under the same amount of pressure as other carmakers, because it already has a “zero-emission solution”: the Leaf, which is the most selled electric car in the world.
