Japanese automaker’s commitment to sustainability and innovation evident as Nissan electric vehicle sales soar.
Nissan has proudly announced reaching a significant milestone in their journey towards a greener future: one million electric vehicles (EVs) sold worldwide. Interestingly, Europe leads the sales figures from 2010 to the present day.
A Look Back at Nissan’s Electric Journey
Thirteen years ago, Nissan introduced the world to its first mass-produced electric vehicle, the Nissan Leaf. For several years, this zero-emission vehicle stood alone in Nissan’s lineup. Today, the Leaf boasts over 650,000 units sold globally, marking it as a pioneer in the EV sector.
The electric range expanded in 2014 with the introduction of the e-NV200, exclusively catering to the European market. Fast forward to 2022, Nissan launched Ariya, its first electric crossover, and earlier this year, the successor to e-NV200, the Nissan Townstar EV, hit the roads.
Breaking Down the Sales
Out of the one million EVs sold, Europe accounts for a whopping 320,000 vehicles. Both China and Japan tie with 230,000 zero-emission Nissan cars each, closely followed by North America, which has seen 210,000 Nissan EVs roll off the lots. The remaining 10,000 vehicles are distributed among other regions.
Nissan Electric Future
Nissan’s commitment to electrifying its fleet doesn’t stop here. By 2030, the automaker plans to launch an impressive 19 new electric models globally. Furthermore, starting from 2028, all Nissan EVs will be equipped with state-of-the-art solid-state batteries, promising longer ranges and faster charging times.
Nissan’s achievement in the EV market underscores its dedication to innovation, sustainability, and meeting global demands. As the company charts its course for the next decade, the automotive world eagerly awaits the next chapter in Nissan’s electric story.
