The Nissan EV and battery manufacturing factory in Smyma, Tennessee is under construction and on schedule, according to an article under the SHIFT column of my newspaper. Nissan plans to produce 150,000 Leafs a year at the plant, starting late next year. The adjacent Li-ion battery plant will have the capacity to produce up to 200,000 battery packs a year. The combined production of both the cars and battery packs will create up to 1,300 jobs when it is up and running at full capacity.
