Nissan Ambition 2030 - 15 new EVs, cobalt-free and all-solid-state batteries

29 November 2021, 06:20:42

Nissan Ambition 2030 - 15 new EVs, cobalt-free and all-solid-state batteriesNissan unveiled Nissan Ambition 2030, the company's new long-term vision for empowering mobility and beyond. Over the next ten years, Nissan will deliver exciting, electrified vehicles and technological innovations while expanding its operations globally. The vision supports Nissan's goal to be carbon neutral across the life cycle of its products by the fiscal year 2050.

As a pioneer of electric vehicles (EVs), Nissan has democratized EVs and invested in building charging infrastructure and energy management. By placing electrification at the core of the company's long-term strategy, Nissan Ambition 2030, the company aims to accelerate the electrification of its vehicle lineup and rate of technology innovation with investments of 2 trillion yen over the next five years.

Based on customer demands for a diverse range of exciting vehicles, Nissan will introduce 23 new electrified models, including 15 new EVs by the fiscal year 2030 aiming for an electrification mix of more than 50% globally across the Nissan and INFINITI brands.

With the introduction of 20 new EV and e-POWER equipped models in the next five years, Nissan intends to increase its electrification sales mix across major markets by the fiscal year 2026, including: Representing the next stage of Nissan's electrified future, the company today also unveiled three new concept cars that offer enhanced experiences through sophisticated technology packaging. These concepts showcase the thrilling possibilities that Nissan strives to provide across a wide range of new advanced vehicles and ecosystems.

The first concept is a new way to think about mobility - the Nissan CHILL-OUT is a mobile haven. It features a sleek and modern design, advanced safety technology and a productive and comfortable interior space. The crossover concept utilizes the CMF-EV platform, delivering high levels of comfort and an energizing driving experience.

The Nissan MAX-OUT is a convertible that surpasses the conventions of driving excitement. It aims to deliver a new driving experience with its superlative stability and comfort. Dynamic cornering and steering response are balanced with limited body roll to optimize driver and passenger comfort, creating a feeling of oneness with the car.

The Nissan HANG-OUT is a utility vehicle that changes the concept of space. A stress-free ride for all vehicle occupants. The car is more than just a means of transportation; it can be used as an extension of personal space. It offers space in which you can fully focus on what you want to do while on the move.

Finally, there's the Nissan SURF-OUT - a pickup truck that empowers customers' range of activities. A hub for having fun with your friends, the Nissan SURF-OUT aims to provide a smooth ride regardless of the terrain, enabling customers to go anywhere in comfort and with confidence. The vehicle's variety of power sources and low and flat cargo space are aimed to help you to go wherever you want and amplify your experience when you get there.

Nissan's ambition is to support greater access to safe and exciting mobility. To make progress towards this, Nissan will continue to evolve its lithium-ion battery technologies and introduce cobalt-free technology to bring down the cost by 65% by the fiscal year 2028.

Nissan aims to launch EV with its proprietary all-solid-state batteries (ASSB) by the fiscal year 2028 and ready a pilot plant in Yokohama as early as the fiscal year 2024. With the introduction of breakthrough ASSB, Nissan will be able to expand its EV offerings across segments and offer more dynamic performance. By reducing charging time to one-third, ASSBs will make EVs more efficient and accessible. Further, Nissan expects ASSB to bring the cost of battery packs down to $75 per kWh by fiscal year 2028 and aims to bring it further down to $65 per kWh to achieve cost parity between EV and gasoline vehicles in the future.

Nissan seeks to establish a global battery supply system to meet growing customer vehicle demand and support the growing number of EVs in use. Working with its partners, Nissan intends to increase its global battery production capacity to 52 GWh by fiscal year 2026, and 130 GWh by the fiscal year 2030.

Though Nissan Ambition 2030, the company also seeks to extend the benefits of mobility by delivering its advanced driver-assistance and intelligence technologies to more customers. These combined efforts will likewise support Nissan's continued efforts to establish new mobility services and partnerships.

Nissan aims to expand ProPILOT technology to over 2.5 million Nissan and INFINITI vehicles by the fiscal year 2026. The company will also further develop its autonomous vehicle technologies, aiming to incorporate next-generation LIDAR systems on virtually every new model by the fiscal year 2030.

In addition to technology upgrades, Nissan will localize manufacturing and sourcing to make EVs more competitive. Nissan will expand its unique EV Hub concept, EV36Zero, which was launched in the UK to core markets including Japan, China and the U.S. EV36Zero is a fully integrated manufacturing and service ecosystem connecting mobility and energy management with the aim of realizing carbon neutrality.

Ensuring vehicle batteries remain sustainable will also continue to be a priority for Nissan based on its decade of repurposing and recycling expertise with 4R Energy. The company intends to expand its battery refurbishing facilities beyond Japan with new locations in Europe during the fiscal year 2022, and in the U.S. in the fiscal year 2025. Nissan's refurbishing infrastructure will support a circular economy in energy management, and the company aims to fully commercialize its vehicle-to-everything and home battery systems in the mid-2020s. In addition, the company will invest up to 20 billion yen by 2026 towards charging infrastructure.
