Nissan’s electric vehicle plans
Nissan is accelerating its plans for electric vehicles (EVs), with a goal to have them make up 40% of its global sales by 2030. The Japanese automaker announced today that it will introduce 12 new EVs by that time, including eight pure EVs and four e-Power hybrids.
Nissan’s EV plans have been in the works for some time now, but they’ve been given new urgency in recent years as the company seeks to catch up to rivals like Tesla and General Motors. The new BEVs will be built on Nissan’s existing EV platform, which currently underpins the Leaf hatchback and e-NV200 van.
The first of the new EVs will be a crossover SUV, which Nissan says will go on sale in 2020. It’ll be followed by a sedan and hatchback, both of which are due in 2021. These three models will form the core of Nissan’s EV lineup, and they’ll be joined by five more EVs over the next nine years.
Two of those five additional EVs will be e-Power hybrids, which combine a gasoline engine with an electric motor. The other three will be pure electric vehicles, two of which will be aimed at the Chinese market. All told, Nissan is aiming to sell 1 million EVs per year by 2025, which should help it reach its goal of 40% EV sales globally by 2030.
The new LEAF e+
With an estimated range of up to 226 miles on a single charge, the new LEAF e+ is Nissan’s longest-range electric vehicle yet. Powered by a high-capacity 62 kWh battery, the LEAF e+ offers up to 40% more range than the standard LEAF. And with its 150 kW (201 hp) electric motor, the LEAF e+ has more power and quicker acceleration than ever before.
The Ariya Concept
In August 2019, Nissan Motor Corporation announced plans to introduce 12 new battery electric vehicles (BEVs) by the end of fiscal year 2023. The announcement was made as part of Nissan’s M.O.V.E. to 2022 midterm plan and builds on the company’s commitment to electrification.
The first BEV in the lineup is the Ariya Concept, which made its world debut at the 2020 Tokyo Motor Show. The Ariya is a coupé-style SUV that combines an emotionally engaging design with advanced technologies for a unique driving experience.
The Ariya Concept is powered by two electric motors – one on each axle – that deliver all-wheel drive capability and instant torque for a 0-60 mph time of less than 5 seconds1. With a range of up to 300 miles2 on a single charge, the Ariya Concept can take drivers almost anywhere they want to go.
Charging is fast and convenient with both Level 2 (240 volt) AC and DC fast charging capability3. The vehicle can be recharged to 80% battery capacity in just under 30 minutes4 using DC fast charging, making long distance travel more feasible than ever before.
The Ariza concept features an elegant and minimalist interior design that prioritizes passenger comfort and creates a serene driving environment. The intuitive layout of the cockpit puts all essential information right in front of the driver, while passengers can stay connected with NissanConnect5 – an advanced
