According to Nissan's plans, every vehicle coming out of its facilities will be electrified by the early 2030s. Nissan had announced its intention to bring affordable electric vehicles to the masses around the world when Nissan launched the Leaf electric car in 2010.

“With Leaf, Nissan showed our pioneering spirit in electric vehicles. Now with more than a half-million pure EVs sold and more than 5 billion electric miles driven on roads around the world, we’re helping to lead the electric vehicle revolution," said Jeremie Papin, Chairperson, Nissan Americas. “Nissan is fully committed to doing our part toward building a cleaner, safer and more inclusive society for all," he added.
