New Nissan Ambition 2030 details new electric vehicle strategy
Nissan Chill-Out concept could preview Nissan LEAF successor
Four concepts show new Nissan design language
Nissan plans to release 23 new electrified models by 2030 including 15 new fully electric vehicles across the Nissan and Infiniti lineups, bringing its total electrified vehicle mix to 50% by the end of the decade.
The new plan called Nissan Ambition 2030 was announced today alongside a range of new concepts including the successor to the Nissan LEAF, the Nissan Chill-Out shown here.
Other concepts include the Nissan Max-Out, a topless performance car; the Nissan Surf-Out electrified pickup, and the Nissan Hang-Out, an off-road adventure-focused minivan.
Although still early in their development stage, the concepts provide a glimpse into Nissan’s future design language with the Chill-Out being the closest of the four to production form. The model is built on the same platform as the upcoming Ariya and will feature the same e-4ORCE twin-motor all-wheel drive technology.
The concepts also feature solid-state battery technology, the next-generation of battery construction that would have significant safety and performance enhancements over current liquid batteries such as lithium-ion.
Some of the most noteworthy features of the new concepts include the see-through front grill in the Max-Out concept and the theater-style seating in the Hang-Out which also has a system to filter out vibrations and bumps in the cabin to limit motion sickness.
