Nissan Motor Co. has set an ambitious mission to reach carbon neutrality across its operations and its products’ lifecycle by 2050. As part of the effort, by the early 2030s, every all-new Nissan vehicle offering in key markets will be electrified. Nissan asserts that it will also seek electrification and manufacturing technology innovations to enable meet its carbon neutrality goal.

Innovations will occur in batteries, including solid-state and related technologies to develop cost-competitive and more efficient electric vehicles. Nissan will further establish its e-POWER electrified powertrain for more efficiency.
Did you know that the first-generation X-TRAIL T30 is the direct predecessor of 2021 #NissanRogue? This model had similar innovative features as the Rogue, including the “All-Mode 4×4” feature that evolved into Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. #TBT #Heritage #Nissan pic.twitter.com/64LUsFyhrK

Nissan will also create a better ecosystem supporting a decentralized on-site power generation system for buildings using renewable energy sources.
The automaker says it anticipates increased collaboration with the energy sector to support the decarbonization of power grids.

Nissan intends to invest in manufacturing process innovations to support increased productivity during vehicle assembly. For decades, Nissan had a program to reduce emissions and provide electric vehicle technologies to help society and the environment.
The automaker’s electrification and emissions reduction efforts also support the UN Paris Agreement’s goals on climate change and global progress towards carbon neutrality by 2050. Nissan says 100 percent of all-new vehicle offerings will be electrified in Japan, China, the US, and Europe by the early 2030s.
Nissan is also set a goal to be among the leaders driving the adoption of electric vehicle technology. Solid-state batteries, in particular, hold the promise to significantly change the electric vehicle market with longer driving ranges and significantly faster charge times. Once automakers can address driving range and charge speed, electric vehicles will go more mainstream. Electric vehicle technology is also coming down, getting the cars closer in price with traditional combustion engine vehicles.
