Nissan says aims to sell 1 mln electric vehicles annually by 2022

Although a bit hit, the Leaf can not achieve that goal on its own, so Nissan presented on Friday plans to make the company the single largest player in the emerging market segment.

While it may appear to be an aggressive plan for an automaker that makes about 5 million vehicles per year, Nissan doesn't mean "all-electric vehicles" by employing the term "electrified".

Ltd. today unveiled plans to launch growing numbers of electrified vehicles, expand and evolve autonomous driving systems, and accelerate vehicle connectivity as part of its Nissan 2022 midterm plan. The tally will get a boost from the introduction of Nissan's new e-Power setup, a range-extender hybrid system it is already selling in Japan and will next bring to other markets. Bold electrification goals comprise the bulk of the new targets, as Nissan steps up its response to an onslaught of new entrants in the EV segment. It will be followed by another, manufactured together with Dongfeng on an A-segment SUV platform. Two further EVs will be launched under the Chinese Venucia brand. Nissan predicts electrified vehicles will make up 30 percent of its USA sales by 2025. Nissan says it will launch eight new all-electric models over the next few years, including a production model based on the IMx crossover concept, and an electric kei auto for the Japanese market.

Our product and technology strategy is dedicated to positioning Nissan to lead the automotive, technology and business evolution. "Our efforts are focused on delivering Nissan Intelligent Mobility, encompassing the three core elements of electrification, autonomous drive, connectivity and new mobility services".

Alongside the all-electric cars, Nissan will expand availability of its e-Power hybrid powertrain, which is now offered on the Note and Serena in Japan. In the United Stated, it expects it to reach around 20-30 percent by 2025, while in China it expects 35-40 percent.

Nissan's plans also include a pure electric crossover that will be available in global markets. The enhanced capability will be introduced in Japan as a pilot project within one year.

Nissan is also plotting to sell one million ProPilot-equipped models per year by 2022.

Nissan held tests for its self-driving taxi service on public roads in Yokohama earlier this month, and plans to offer the service beginning in Japan in the early 2020s.
