Notes from Project Better Place+Renault press conference
Production of the cars will initially be in Renault's European plants and not in China or Israel as some expected. Ghosn did say if demand is greater than expected (an idea hinted at several times in the press conference) it would be a good idea to bring production to Israel. There are some funny moments too. Shai says hybrids are like mermaids, when you want a woman you get a fish. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert affectionately called Shai the boy from children's book who says the King had no clothes.
The signing of the Project Better Place+Renault contract is a great moment. Should everything go right, in 2011, tens of thousands of electric cars will be sold and will be recharging (in) Israel.
