Nissan launched the Nissan EV36Zero, a flagship electric vehicle (EV) center valued at £ 1 billion, and is building the world’s first electric vehicle ecosystem.

The Nissan EV36Zero is located in a record-setting car manufacturing plant in Sunderland, UK, and will support the company’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions and a new 360-degree zero-emission engine.

The retrofit project started with an initial investment of £1 billion by Nissan and its partner Envision AESC (a global battery technology company) and the Sunderland City Council. The Nissan EV36Zero is composed of three interrelated programs that combine vehicle power, renewable energy, and battery production. Develop a blueprint for the future of the automotive industry.

As part of the £1 billion announcements, Nissan will invest up to £423 million to manufacture the next generation of all-electric vehicles in the UK. Based on Nissan’s cross-border expertise and Nissan LEAF’s global success, it promises to provide style, efficiency, and style to the next generation of vehicles. Battery technology makes it more affordable to switch to electric driving.

Makoto Uchida, President, and CEO of Nissan said: “This project is part of Nissan’s pioneering effort to achieve carbon neutrality throughout the product life cycle. Our holistic approach includes not only the development and production of electric vehicles but also the use of onboard batteries. As energy storage and secondary utilization.

British products for the global market are exported to the European market traditionally served by Nissan’s Sunderland plant. The new crossover will be built on the Alliance CMFEV platform, with an estimated production capacity of 100,000 vehicles.

Sunderland’s manufacturing industry will create 909 new jobs for the factory and more than 4,500 jobs for the UK supply chain, while R&D will add 75 additional jobs. As a result of the renovation project, Nissan has invested more than 5 billion pounds in the plant, which also includes:

• R and D at Nissan’s European Technology Center in Cranfield, Bedfordshire,
• Helping UK suppliers switch to electric vehicles
• Improving business competitiveness and improving the environment
• Improving Nissan’s workforce skills to cope with future technologies

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “Nissan’s announcement of the next generation of electric vehicles and the new Envision AESC super factory in Sunderland is a huge trust in the UK and our skilled workforce in the Northeast.”

With more than 30 years of experience in this field, this is a turning point in our electric car revolution, which will ensure its future for decades to come.

Pledges like this demonstrate our ability to create hundreds of green jobs and promote the development of British industry, while at the same time enabling people to travel affordable and sustainable, thereby eliminating our contribution to climate change.

“We have reached a new milestone with the Nissan Leaf, which is the first all-electric car in the mass market. Now, as we accelerate the realization of Fully electrified and carbon-neutral, Nissan will lead the next phase of the automotive industry together with our partners.”

The battery business vision AESC of the global environmental protection company Vision Group will deploy intelligent and integrated AIoT technology to monitor and optimize the energy consumption, production, and services of its new super factory, rapidly expand production, and use batteries to power 100,000 Nissan cars. Every year.

Envision AESC is investing 450 million pounds to build the UK’s first super factory in the International Manufacturing Park (IAMP) next to the Nissan plant, which will use renewable energy and innovate next-generation battery technology.

The formal planning process of the new Gigafactory will begin soon. This will be an initial 9 GWh facility with a potential future investment of 1.8 billion by 2030 and the ability to produce up to 35 GWh locally.

The new plant will increase the price competitiveness of electric car batteries made in the UK, including new Gen5 battery cells with a specific energy density of 30%, thereby increasing the range and efficiency.

New Nissan Motor supports the continuous localization of auto parts with advanced technology, reduces battery costs, and increases the availability of electric vehicles for more and more customers in the future.

Lei Zhang, founder, and CEO of Envision Group said: “By 2030, demand growth may bring up to 1.8 billion pounds of future investment, 25 GWh of additional production capacity, and 4,500 jobs. The new British electric vehicle center, with R & D, Cooperate to solve all battery problems. Life cycle, from storage to recycling, V2G smart charging, and feedback recycling.

Nissan in the UK

Nissan Qashqai, Juke, and LEAF are currently produced in Sunderland, most of which (70%) are exported to continental Europe, 20% are sold in the UK, and the other 10% are exported to the global market, from South America to Australia. From the Nordic countries to South Africa.

The new £1 billion Nissan EV36Zero improvement heralds the subsequent segment of Nissan’s electrification plan and its UK operations.
