The electric car is real. Its here. And before long -- when curbside charging stations become as ubiquitous as parking meters -- it wont seem all that complicated, either. So says a man who has thrown his corporate reputation into the post-gasoline car: Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Renault and Nissan.
In a wide-ranging Wharton Leadership Lecture that touched on everything from managing a multicultural conglomerate to pushing for targeted government regulation, Ghosn was at his most optimistic when discussing a future where zero-emissions vehicles are embraced, not out of altruism towards Mother Earth, but because they are good business.
