Ambition 2030, Nissan Motor Corporations long-term strategy has been unveiled as a 5 year, 2 trillion yen ($17.6 Billion US) investment that will launch 23 exciting new electrified models, including 15 new EVs, aiming for a 50% electrification mix by fiscal year 2030 and to introduce ASSB in fiscal year 2028.
Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida made this statement: “The role of companies to address societal needs is increasingly heightened. With Nissan Ambition 2030, we will drive the new age of electrification, advance technologies to reduce carbon footprint and pursue new business opportunities. We want to transform Nissan to become a sustainable company that is truly needed by customers and society.”
As a Pioneer of electrified vehicles and building the success of the Nissan Leaf, their first global EV, Nissan has listened to the customers from both Nissan and Infiniti brands. Over the next 5 years, Nissan will introduce 20 new EV and e-powered equipped models that will allow them to increase electrification sales mix across major markets by fiscal year 2026, 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
To increase accessibility and innovation in mobility, Nissan will continue to evolve their existing lithium-ion battery technologies and introduce cobalt-free technology to bring down the cost by 65% by fiscal 2028.
This goal aligns with Nissan's focus to bring their ASSB, a proprietary all-solid-state battery packs to market by fiscal 2028. A pilot plant is under construction with production expected by 2024. Nissan expects to expand their EV offerings across multiple segments and offer even more dynamic performance EVs with their breakthrough ASSB battery packs. Nissan expects the ASSB to reduce rapid charging to 1/3rd of existing top current battery technology and bring the cost of battery packs down to $75 per kWh by fiscal 2028 and after that to $65 per kWh if not lower as they achieve cost parity between EVs and ICE autos.
Nissan expects to have next generation LIDAR systems in all Nissan and INFINITI models by fiscal year 2030.
