Nissan Bringing Two EVs to US Plant in 2025: Report

Nissan will have two new EV sedans in 2025

  • EVs from Nissan and Infiniti coming to Canton

  • $500m investment will make plant “EV manufacturing center”


Nissan will be spending $500m on its Mississippi plant to bring electric vehicle production to the facility. Starting in 2025, the plant will build two new EVs, one Nissan and one Infiniti, says a new report.

The move will turn the Canton, MS, plant, into a “center for EV manufacturing and technology,” reports Automotive News. The facility was the first auto plant in the state, opening two decades ago.

Nissan will build the new EVs on an all-new line at the plant. The facility is currently home to the Altima sedan and both Nissan’s Frontier and Titan pickups, though it’s not clear if this vehicle would replace the Altima.

While product details were not revealed, AN says that they have “sedan-like” profiles and a sloping roofline, as well as headlight and taillight designs new to the brand. A new sedan is a strange choice in a market that is hot for crossovers and quite cold for cars, but they aren’t likely to be Nissan’s only EVs.

The Nissan and Infiniti EVs will be a follow-up to the Ariya EV crossover that is set to arrive at dealers this fall. Nissan was one of the first automakers to offer a mass-production EV, when the Leaf launched in 2010. Since then, the shine of the Leaf faded as other automakers launched longer range, more powerful, and flashier EVs.
