The companies will jointly develop next-generation batteries for use in e-POWER vehicles.

Nissan and Sunwoda will also consider developing an efficient manufacturing technology for the stable supply of a jointly developed car battery. In the future, the specific content and terms of joint development will be discussed. The results of the joint work will be presented by the end of 2020.

Recall that the Japanese automaker is actively following the plan for the electrification of its cars and vehicles based on e-POWER technology, which was highly appreciated by customers for their powerful driving performance and quiet operation, provided by a 100% electric drive. Similar technology in the future will receive all cars of segments B and C in the world market. By 2023, we plan to sell more than 1 million cars equipped with environmentally friendly power plants annually.

Sunwoda has extensive global experience, mainly in the development of household appliances and lithium-ion batteries in the automotive industry. The Chinese electronics maker is expected to contribute to Nissan’s e-POWER strategy using its proven technology.

In the future, both companies will further strengthen their positions by combining Nissan’s technology and know-how for the development of electric vehicles and batteries in cars with next-generation Sunwoda batteries, including in the Chinese and world markets.
