Leaf Sales Plummet in Japan.... Taxpayer Subsidies are Keeping The Titanic "Afloat" in the USA.....

"...Development costs for EVs remain high, however, which means the discounts are only causing car makers to lose more money on them. Sergio Marchionne, chief executive of Chrysler Group and Fiat, has said in the past his company will lose about $10,000 on every EV it builds...."   Forbes
Maybe America is just adding more gas to the Titanic & it's still gonna sink.

Sales of the NISSAN Leaf are "shrinking" in Japan .  I've been told Japanese companies are leaning toward "other" technologies in green cars.  Literally 1/2 + less buyers in Japan. Did the Japanese political leaders have the balls to say "enough is enough"...  In France the EV gravy train is still happening.  Some say their playing roulette with the economic well being of that country.
   

Leaf sales remain.... at about 2k per month.  How many are sold to fleets that are taxpayer backed?  How much to they "really" cost to build.  In 2011 I was told that a Leaf cost over 60K and when marketing and other cost put in the equasion the cost about 80k ..  SInce then I was told that prices did drop to make the care to about 55k.... Still the car is about 80% taxpayer subsidized....  Is NISSAN is using a 1.4 Billion Dept. of Energy loan as "extra subsidies.. NISSAN does not have battery technology that can "compete" with Tesla in a couple of years. Ford's already got better technology and so does GM.  


Oddly the top guy at Tesla KNEW theNISSAN battery was "crap"...  In 2010 he was quoted as saying that.  EVERYONE back then who understood EV technology knew thatNISSAN was using "outdated" technology.  For Stephen Chu and the Dept. of Energy made some bad decisions. Why did NISSAN take so much taxpayer money.                                                                             I knew about the issues of the NISSAN Leaf because people that worked on the Leaf technology communicated to me that they did NOT like their company committing FRAUD.   
Can someone ask NISSAN if that is true? Are the taxpayers subsidizing the Leaf lease rate on top of "other" incentives ($7500)  I heard "creative financing" happened with the lease finance terms.  Is that true?
