Nissan To Launch Eight New Fully Electric Cars By 2022

Industry News

The goal is to sell one-million EVs every year by 2022—six times more than the number it sold last year.

Like many other automakers, Nissan has outlined its plans to ramp up EV production over the next few years to combat tough emissions regulations. As part of its “M.O.V.E. to 2022” strategy, the Japanese automaker has announced it will launch as many as eight new fully electric cars within the next four years to build on the success of the new Leaf. Specific details are being kept under wraps for now, but, in addition to the eight new EVs, Nissan will also be introducing multiple EVs in China through joint ventures.

These will include a new C-segment EV this year, which will be derived from Nissan Leaf technology, as well as an affordable new A-segment EV like the Fiat 500. Its Infiniti luxury brand is also aiming to electrify its entire lineup by 2021.The ultimate goal of this new strategy, however, is to sell one million electrified vehicles every year by 2022—or six times more than the number of EVs it sold last year. It's an ambitious target. We recently learned Nissan has given a production version of the IMx concept the green light, which packed 429 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque in concept form.

Currently, demand for EVs isn’t especially high due to high costs and limited charging infrastructures, but the automaker believes its new electric crossover will change this and become the first truly mainstream EV. With around 300,000 lifetime sales, the Nissan Leaf is currently the world’s best-selling EV. As part of the strategy, Nissan is also planning to deploy its ProPILOT driver assist in 20 models in 20 markets by 2022, which is ideal for highway driving as it can keep a vehicle in a single lane and match the car’s speed with traffic.
