Every New Nissan in Europe Will Now Be an EV

Nissan going all EV in EU by 2030

  • No more new gas models from Nissan Europe

  • Move could bring more EVs to our roads

Nissan has officially announced that every model it introduces in Europe will be electric-only from now on. The move puts it ahead of continental mandates and makes it easier for the automaker to follow a similar process for North America.

The company’s plan is to be 100 percent EV by 2030 in Europe. To help accomplish that, Nissan has said it will continue to make investments into its European design and research teams.

“EV is the ultimate mobility solution. More than a million customers have already joined our journey and experienced the fun of a Nissan electric vehicle, and there is no turning back now,” said Makoto Uchida, Nissan President and CEO.

“EVs powered by renewables are key to us achieving carbon neutrality, which is central to our Ambition 2030 vision. Nissan will make the switch to full electric by 2030 in Europe – we believe it is the right thing to do for our business, our customers and for the planet.”

Gobally, the brand will have 27 new electrified model, 19 of which will be EVs, by 2030. It also expects to have cobalt-free batteries by 2028, which will cut costs by 65 percent.

Two new EVs for Europe have already been confirmed, and Nissan revealed a concept that is a preview of one of them. It’s a subcompact that is a replacement for the iconic Micra. It will be Nissan’s entry-level model there, and one that would be great to see on sale in Canada once again.

Nissan’s lineup in Europe includes many vehicles that are the same or largely similar to those sold here, including the Qashqai and the Rogue (sold there as the X-Trail). When those go EV in Europe, making the same change here seems like a logical step.
