Accelerating electrified mobility through an array of choices and experiences
Nissan, as an early adopter of electric vehicles (EVs), has democratised EVs and invested in charging infrastructure and energy management. By putting electrification at the heart of the business’s long-term strategy, Nissan Ambition 2030, the firm wants to accelerate the electrification of its vehicle range and rate of technological innovation over the next five years with investments totaling 2 trillion yen.
Based on customer demand for a varied variety of exciting vehicles, Nissan will introduce 23 new electrified models, including 15 new EVs, by fiscal year 2030, with the goal of achieving a global electrification mix of more than 50% across the Nissan and INFINITI brands.
Nissan expects to improve its electrification sales mix across major markets by fiscal year 2026 by introducing 20 new EV and e-POWER equipped models over the next five years, including:
• Europe by more than 75% of sales
• Japan by more than 55% of sales
• China by more than 40% of sales.
• The United States by 40% of EV sales in fiscal year 2030.
“We are proud of our long track record of innovation, and of our role in delivering the EV revolution.”

Increasing accessibility and innovation in mobility
Nissan’s goal is to increase access to safe and enjoyable mobility. Nissan will continue to enhance its lithium-ion battery technologies and introduce cobalt-free technology in order to reduce costs by 65 percent by fiscal year 2028.
Nissan plans to deploy an electric vehicle (EV) powered by its patented all-solid-state batteries (ASSB) by fiscal year 2028, with a pilot facility in Yokohama ready as early as fiscal year 2024. Nissan will be able to expand its EV offers across segments and provide more dynamic performance with the introduction of groundbreaking ASSB.
ASSBs will make EVs more efficient and accessible by cutting charging time in half. Furthermore, Nissan anticipates ASSB to reduce the cost of battery packs to $75 per kWh by fiscal year 2028, with the goal of lowering it even further to $65 per kWh in the future to reach cost parity between EV and gasoline vehicles.
Nissan intends to build a global battery supply chain in order to satisfy rising customer car demand and support the growing number of EVs on the road. Nissan plans to boost its global battery production capacity to 52 GWh by fiscal year 2026, and 130 GWh by fiscal year 2030, in collaboration with its partners.
Nissan Ambition 2030 aims to spread the benefits of mobility to more customers by introducing sophisticated driver-assistance and intelligence technologies. These collaborative initiatives will also help Nissan’s ongoing attempts to build new mobility services and collaborations.
Nissan EV Technology Vision
Global ecosystem for mobility and beyond
Nissan will localise manufacture and sourcing in addition to upgrading technologies to make EVs more competitive. Nissan will expand its unique EV Hub idea, EV36Zero, which debuted in the United Kingdom, to key countries including as Japan, China, and the United States. The EV36Zero is a fully integrated manufacturing and service ecosystem that connects mobility and energy management in order to achieve carbon neutrality.
Nissan will continue to prioritise the sustainability of vehicle batteries based on its decade of repurposing and recycling knowledge with 4R Energy. The firm plans to extend its battery reconditioning operations outside of Japan by opening new locations in Europe in fiscal year 2022 and in the United States in fiscal year 2025.
Nissan’s infrastructure refurbishment will help to promote a circular economy in energy management, and the corporation hopes to fully commercialise its vehicle-to-everything and home battery systems by the mid-2020s. Furthermore, by 2026, the corporation plans to invest up to 20 billion yen in charging infrastructure.
Nissan wants to add more than 3,000 individuals in advanced research and development internationally as it accelerates its pace of mobility innovation, while also continuing to upskill its present staff. The corporation will also leverage Alliance collaboration to achieve cost savings and shared expertise in areas like as carbon-neutral technologies, electrification, software, and services.
Beyond the Nissan NEXT transformation plan, the corporation will be able to sustain its business in the long run, with a consolidated operating profit margin of more than 5%.
