Nissan to go all-electric by 2030 despite petrol ban delay
Nissan will accelerate plans towards electrification by committing that all vehicles sold in Europe will be electric by 2030. The announcement comes despite the UK postponing its 2030 ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars to 2035. Car trade body the SMMT has voiced concerns that the postponement of the ban would see consumers delay the switch to electric vehicles. Nissan will also introduce new battery technology by the end of the decade that it said will reduce both the charging time and cost of electric vehicles, but it did not specify when EVs would cost the same as petrol cars. "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," said Nissan's chief executive Makoto Uchida.
