Nissan Increases Planned Number of EVs Coming by 2030
• Nissan is upping its electrification goals and now plans to add more electric vehicles to its global lineup by 2030 than previously set out.
• The original Ambition 203 plan called for the inroduction of 15 new EVs; that has now increased to 19.
Nissan said this week that it is upping its electrification goals and now plans to add more electric vehicles to its global lineup than set out in its original plan, unveiled in 2021.
That Ambition 2030 plan called for the introduction of 15 all-electric models across the Nissan and Infiniti brands by 2030. Now the Japanese automaker says it will aim to launch 19 models, explaining that the evolution of customer demand and business realities are behind the adjustment.
Nissan hasn’t yet shared any concrete details about which models or even vehicle types will populate the group of 19 new EVs, which of course leaves the field open for speculation. The automaker did showcase several concepts during its presentation of the Ambition 2030 plan, including the Nissan Chill-Out, Hang-Out and Surf-Out design studies. That last one is a pickup, and it’s perhaps the one model we’re most likely to see launch in North America.
