22.4.2022 | Nissan plans to launch its first EV with a solid-state battery by 2028
Nissan revealed a prototype production facility in , Yokohama, Japanon Friday, where the company says it plans to manufacture solid-state batteries for use in electric vehicles.
The company said in a statement that it plans “to establish a pilot production line at its Yokohama Plant in fiscal 2024, with materials, design and manufacturing processes for prototype production on the line to be studied at the prototype production facility.” Nissan aims to bring its first EV with all-solid-state batteries to market in 2028.
All-solid-state batteries could, in theory, charge more quickly, hold more power, and last longer than lithium-ion batteries that most EVs use now. Nissan said it expects to eventually use the batteries across its vehicle lineup, including its pickup trucks.
