By this time, the company will show nine vehicles in China, which will be either all-electric or hybrid. The move will come against the backdrop of Beijing’s plans by 2035 to ensure that all machines sold in China meet more stringent environmental requirements.

Also, the Japanese concern is going to expand production capacity in the Middle Kingdom by about 30%, up to 2 million units. In addition, the company plans to increase the share of electric cars sold in China from the current 2% to 23% over the next three years.

In the Japanese car market, Nissan is now selling the Leaf electric hatchback with a range of 250-270 km. Also in 2021, the serial production of the Ariya crossover with more powerful batteries should be launched, which allows the car, depending on the modification, to drive from 340 to 500 km on a single charge.

Another Japanese automaker Toyota Motor previously announced its intention to completely stop assembling cars with gasoline or diesel engines for the domestic car market by 2025, leaving only hybrids, electric cars and cars running on hydrogen in its model line.
