As we look towards a greener future Japanese car manufacturer Nissan recently revealed reports suggesting they may actually be able to sell more of their electric Leaf gas-free motors than they initially projected. This gives us the impression more countries are starting to embrace the fossil-fuel alternatives, and Nissan unveiled news that over 100,000 units of its electric Leaf have been sold since its launch back in 2010.

This is not only great news for the car manufacturer, but also the environment in general as we are now starting to see the market shift towards more eco-friendly vehicles. The electric car sales boom is documented on the Time website highlighting recent reports from Nissan that they could sell up to 1.5 million units of electric vehicles by 2020.

Towards the second half of this year the Leaf will hit the South Korean market and although Nissan acknowledge the limited market compared to that of gas-engine cars, they feel that tougher emissions standards worldwide will assist the growth of the electric-car market.

In other Nissan news, we recently discussed the new Nissan Juke being even uglier as the 2014 Geneva Motor Show showcases a whole spectrum of motors. Those of you who found the previous Juke was an unattractive model may find the newer version has been regarded as even uglier by some.

This model has accumulated plenty of criticism about its look in the past, and although this does look like a fun car, we are concerned that Nissan are not taking any previous feedback on board. Returning to the original topic are you glad to see the demand for electric-cars is starting to rise?
