Despite the fact that Nissan Leaf deliveries are off to a slow start in both the U.S. and Japan, an advance supply of electric hatches will reportedly ship off to Hong Kong soon. According to a statement released by Kitty Poon, Hong Kong's acting secretary of environment, Nissan has agreed to fast-track this batch of Leafs so they arrive no later than April.

Additionally, Hong Kong's government wants to sign a deal with a supplier of commercial electric vehicles. City officials have said that talks center around a British manufacturer that they would only identify as Smith, which we assume to be Smith Electric Vehicles, the U.S.-based commercial electric vehicle manufacturer that recently bought out its British parent company, Tanfield Group.
