Nissan Declares that it will Produce 16 New Electric Cars by 2026

Nissan has announced a new strategy to electrify 16 of its 30 vehicles by 2026, with internal combustion powering the remaining vehicles. The business claims it intends to launch seven new cars in the US and Canada, but it’s unclear how many of those will be electric vehicles. This information is for those who live in North America.

According to Nissan, “e-POWER and plug-in hybrid models” will be available in the US; these vehicles run on a combination of petrol and electricity. Right now, Nissan only makes two all-electric vehicles: the Ariya SUV and the possibly endangered Leaf.

Nissan announced in 2021 that it will produce 23 electric vehicles by 2030, of which 15 would be completely electric and not hybrids. Although 16 is a larger number than 15, Nissan doesn’t specifically state how many of those 16 are all-battery or if any of them are, so it’s difficult to determine if any of this is an improvement over the original plan.

Nonetheless, the business stated that it now expects 60% of its cars to be “electrified” by 2030, up from its previous commitment of 50% by the same year. By the same year, it increased the total number of electrified vehicles to 34.

The business appears to be reversing its 2028 “all-solid-state” battery plans. It now claims that by that date, it will be manufacturing cars with “enhanced NCM li-ion, LFP and all-solid-state batteries.”
