Nissan goes Solid-State

Nissan showed its in-construction all-solid-state battery pilot line to members of the media at its Yokohama Plant in Kanagawa Prefecture on 16th April 2024. The pilot line is aimed to further promote development and innovative manufacturing technologies for the batteries.

Under the Nissan Ambition 2030 long-term vision, Nissan aims to launch EVs equipped with batteries by fiscal year 2028.

All-solid-state batteries, which will be game-changers for EVs, have the potential for energy density approximately twice that of conventional lithium-ion batteries, significantly shorter charging time due to superior charge and discharge performance, and lower costs due to less expensive materials. Nissan plans to use all-solid-state batteries in a wide range of vehicle segments, including pickup trucks, making its EVs more competitive.

Nissan is conducting wide-ranging research and development, from molecular-level battery material research to electric vehicle development, and even city development using EVs as storage batteries. Utilizing this experience, Nissan is stepping up development with the goal of practical implementation.

Mobility Alliance take –

Mainstream EV pioneer Nissan has been struggling with its production, especially with ARIA, and also the cost parity of its long-standing LEAF. The change, rather than a revisit to their strategy amidst the challenge of China seems they play the trumps.

Meeting the production and marketing costs was an issue for the Japanese for some time while meeting their unwavering quality measures. They may not consider lowering the standards for sure, yet need to innovate the processes and strategies to be competitive in an ever-challenging EV arena.

If not, whatever the best battery they make, for whatever the price the competition will be all the same or more as the technology is everywhere now! No product innovation will last, it is the service and marketing innovations Nissan needs to pay stronger attention to.
