Nissan’s Ghosn shows the goals for the deployment of electric vehicles in the U.S.

A highly esteemed group of business leaders, which include Nissan Motor Co. CEO Carlos Ghosn, has released its goals, which interestingly go beyond President Barack Obama's objective.

The group's report is called the Electrification Roadmap, which lays out goals for the deployment of electric vehicles and supporting infrastructure in the United States.

While President Barack Obama aims to have 1 million electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles on the road by 2015 as well as getting 25% of all sales by 2020, the roadmap is more ambitious.

It sets a national goal of having electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles account for 75 percent of all light-duty vehicle miles traveled in the United States by 2040. To achieve the 2040 target, two midterm goals were stated, namely: 1.

By 2020, electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles should stand for 25% of new car and light-truck sales. At that level, sales growth would result to about 14 million electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles on the road; and 2.

By 2030, those vehicles should stand for 90 percent of new car and light-truck sales. That means that there would be more than 120 million electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles on US roads by 2030. [via autonews]
