Nissan will introduce by next summer its electric vehicle line-up for the European market. Six electric vehicles, between passenger cars and light commercial vehicles, including the new electric Townstar, already launched on a global scale in September 2021.

Nissan to go all electric very soon

Following the decision to not invest in Euro 7 for passenger cars, Nissan will not introduce any new pure internal combustion engine-powered passenger cars in Europe from 2023. Taking bold steps to ensure it will deliver a new era of mobility, Nissan expects 75% of its sales mix in the region to be electrified by FY2026, with the ambition to reach 100% by the end of the decade. This announcement plays a leading role in the delivery of Ambition 2030, the company’s long-term vision for empowering mobility and beyond.

We have established a clear direction through Ambition 2030 and with our new electrified line-up we are truly paving the way to a sustainable future», said Guillaume Cartier, Chairperson, Nissan Africa, Middle East, India, Europe and Oceania Region. «Leveraging our global presence and Alliance partnerships (with Renault and Mitsubishi, ed.), this is a landmark moment for Nissan in Europe with the arrival of our most comprehensive product offering to date. We have harnessed our disruptive nature and our electric expertise to deliver a suite of electrified powertrain technologies that meet the needs of our customers, with zero compromise on excitement».
