Nissan pulled back the curtain for dealers this week, giving a sneak peek into its upcoming electrified arsenal, according to reporting from Automotive News. At the heart of their presentation were three promising models.
First, they unveiled an updated version of the Nissan Leaf. The new Leaf boasts a sportier look and a longer driving range. With improvements, it might achieve up to 265 miles on a single charge, outdoing its predecessor.
Following the Leaf, Nissan introduced a new sporty sedan that could be the successor to the Nissan Maxima. Dealers also got a sneak peek of an electric SUV similar to the Ariya EV’s design and function.
Nissan’s broader vision for an electric future is accelerating, too. The OEM announced plans to release electric vehicles under the Nissan and Infiniti banners by 2025. By 2026, the company’s Canton factory should roll out two more electric SUVs.
Yet, Nissan’s CEO, Makoto Uchida, clarified that the automaker’s gas-powered vehicles aren’t going anywhere soon. By 2026, the U.S. can expect a hybrid from Nissan, a vehicle already successful in Japan.
On the technology front, Nissan is developing a faster-charging battery, aiming for 100 miles of charge in just 15 minutes. Preliminary tests for this battery are set to begin in their Yokohama facility next year.
By 2030, Nissan aims to have 27 new fully electric or hybrid models.
