    Simon Sproule is the absolute BEST in the BIZ! But, I must say, I’m puzzled by the move, because it seems to me, Nissan/Renault has so much more impact on the world auto biz than Tesla. Having said that, Tesla’s battery move, especially as it relates to providing energy storage for the utility industry, could be a real paradigm shift. Hmmm, perhaps there is method to Simon’s madness!
