China is the future of the electric car.

At least, that's what Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn believes.

Speaking to the Associated Press at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show, he said the car industry is carefully watching China to see how it decides to reduce emissions.

When the Chinese do make their move, it will bring on "the explosion of the electric car," Ghosn said. (His words, not ours.)


While no one wants exploding electric cars, it's not surprising that Ghosn is hoping for an increase in demand from China.
