Representatives of Nissan said that at the moment the company is the largest manufacturer of electric vehicles in the world – since 2010, Nissan has sold more than 300 thousand copies of the model Leaf. In the fall of 2017, this model replaced the generation and has already entered a number of European markets. Earlier it became known that on the basis of Leaf the Japanese are going to create an electric crossover.
In 2021, the fully electric model will appear in the lineup of the premium Nissan brand – Infiniti. Design and technical solutions will be borrowed from the concept car Q Inspiration, presented earlier this year at the Detroit Motor Show. By 2025, about half of the cars manufactured by Infiniti will be equipped with an electric or hybrid powerplant.
Finally, by 2022, Nissan intends to begin using unmanned technologies on at least 20 different models that will receive ProPilot’s proprietary proprietary system. Thanks to it cars can move independently along the highway and automatically change lanes if necessary.
