Nissan’s adherence to offer 100% electrified vehicles that means either EVs or hybrids after 2030 is similar to the approach taken by fellow Japanese automaker Toyota, which has said it will offer at least 50 percent” zero emissions vehicles in Europe by 2030.
Nissan is launching three hybrid models this year, the Qashqai compact SUV e-Power, the X-trail e-Power midsize SUV and the Juke hybrid small SUV
Nissan’s E-Power technology is an unconventional hybrid drivetrain to that used by rivals including Toyota and alliance partner Renault in that the 1.5-liter combustion engine does not directly link to the driven wheels.
The powertrain at first hand charges an on-board battery which powers a motor that drives the wheels. This is also known as a series set-up in which the engine does not directly power up the wheels.
Nissan says that the technology entrusts a driving experience more parallel to that of a pure electric vehicle.
the European Union has said that the Volkswagen brand will trench its last combustion engine vehicles in 2035, by then the automakers must achieve a 100 percent cut in CO2 emissions compared to 2021 levels.
Nissan will launch 15 electric vehicles in Europe by 2030, Cartier mentioned that at a presentation for journalists held in Madrid. The car models will include an SUV replacement for the Leaf compact to be built at Nissan’s plant in Sunderland, England, that is anticipated around 2024.
The Juke hybrid for the moment uses a more regular hybrid drivetrain shared with the Renault Capture E-Tech. Renault is one of many mainstream car makers to have made a pledge to drop combustion engines by 2030.
Ford has also promised to go all electric by the same date, along with Fiat and Peugeot.
Opel or Vauxhall has committed to an earlier EV-only start date of 2028. CEO Carlos Tavares has said that across Stellantis brands in Europe, 70 percent of sales will be purely EV by 2030.
As it is all set to compete for the increasing demand for EVs, Nissan in July committed $1.4 billion with its Chinese partner Envision AESC is to construct a giant battery plant in Britain that will vigour 100,000 vehicles in a year including a new crossover model.
The rival company Toyota also declined to sign the Glasgow pledge, are also boosting up their battery production.
