Nissan Australia boss criticises government leadership on electric vehicles – report

The head of Nissan Australia says the country is falling behind other nations in its adoption of zero-emission cars, due to a lack of leadership in Federal Government policies. "The UK, Norway, Canada, they have all taken a position to say we want to have this particular ambition [to embrace electric vehicles] and we want to guide our policy … to that end" Nissan Managing Director Stephen Lester told The Sydney Morning Herald. "And I think at this moment, we don’t have that here."
