Nissan has revealed long-term and ambitious goals focusing on sustainability and connectivity under its "Nissan Ambition 2030" plan. 

The plan includes producing solid-state batteries by 2028 and launching 15 new EV models by 2030. 

Nissan will spend €1.56 bn on electrification and connectivity in the next five years and release 20 new EV and electrified models during this period. By 2026, Nissan wants to increase EV sales in the US and China by 40%, 55% in Japan and %75 in Europe. 

These steps play a crucial role in Nissan's plan to turn 50% of global sales to EVs by 2030 and reach carbon neutrality by 2050. 

Stepping into a global battery manufacturer position

Nissan will also establish a pilot plant in Yokohama in 2024 that will allow it to let go of cobalt-based batteries by 2028 while reducing costs by 65% and charging times by 66%. The global production capacity is expected to reach 130 GWh by 2030. 

In addition, the auto maker aims to unveil "ProPilot" driver assistant software for 2.5 million cars in 2026 and equip all of its models with advanced LIDAR systems by 2030.
