Nissan is taking another step towards becoming more eco-friendly. The automaker recently announced a new goal to become carbon neutral throughout the company’s operations and product life cycles by 2050. With this goal in mind, the brand plans to ensure that every all-new Nissan vehicle offered by the early 2030s will be electrified.
“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 vehicles will continue to expand around the world, and this will make a major contribution to Nissan becoming carbon neutral.”
Nissan is working towards further innovations in electrification and manufacturing technology, focusing significantly on the following areas:
- Battery innovations, which includes solid-state and related technologies to create cost-competitive and more efficient electric vehicles
- Greater energy efficiency with Nissan’s e-POWER electrified powertrains
- The creation of a battery ecosystem to support onsite power generation for buildings with renewable energy sources
- Manufacturing processes that support higher productivity, starting with the Nissan Intelligent Factory initiative
This goal expands past initiatives like the Nissan Green Program. Nissan was the first carmaker to introduce a mass-market electric car with the Nissan LEAF, and it plans to ensure 100 percent of its all-new vehicle offerings will be electrified in the Japanese, Chinese, American, and European market.
