Innovations in batteries, including solid-state and related technologies; Further development of Nissan e-POWER engines to achieve greater energy efficiency; Development of a battery ecosystem to support decentralized on-site power generation for buildings with renewable energy sources; Innovations in the manufacturing process to support increased vehicle assembly productivity, starting with the Nissan Smart Factory initiative.
“We’re determined to help create a carbon-neutral society and accelerate the global effort against climate change,” said Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida. “Our offering in electrified nissan vehicles will continue to expand around the world, and this will make a major contribution to Nissan becoming carbon neutral. We will continue to drive innovation that enriches people’s lives as we pursue a sustainable future for all.”
