Ghosn predicted that there would be as many as 7 million pure electric vehicles being sold around the world by 2020. By contrast, the PWC "Analyst Report" published recently pinned the number of all-electric vehicles that could be produced (but not necessarily sold) at approximately 500,000 units in 2015"growing to 1 million by 2017 and 1.5 million by 2020.
