In a push for electrified vehicles, Nissan has announced its plans to introduce three new dedicated electric vehicles (EV) and five e-POWER hybrid models in Japan by the end of 2022.
Electrification has reaped sustainable returns for the Japanese carmaker as reflected in the 10 per cent growth in Nissan’s global EV sales as well as sales of the Nissan Leaf surpassing 100,000 units in Japan. Nissan expects EV and e-POWER models to make up 40 per cent of domestic sales in the same year and by 2025, 50 per cent of the models sold by Nissan will be an EV or e-POWER models.
Nissan’s Executive Vice President for global marketing and sales, Daniele Schillaci said: “As our domestic market, we are proud that Japan is leading the way forward when it comes to Nissan Intelligent Mobility. This vision is changing the customer experience by delivering technologies and services that are making their lives better and also enabling steady profitable growth through Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022.”
With M.O.V.E to 2022, Nissan aims to become the global leader in electrification, autonomous driving and mobility services with a target sales of 1 million electrified vehicles (e-POWER and EVs) globally per year by the end of the plan.
