Nissan Unveils an All-Electric SUV

Nissan Motor has unveiled a new all-electric sports utility vehicle. It is the first EV to roll off the company’s production line in about 10 years, since the Nissan Leaf. Nissan plans to release the Ariya in Japan in mid-2021. The new model can travel further than the company’s previous EV’s, up to 610 kilometers on one charge. Under certain conditions they are able to take their hands off the wheel. Nissan says the autonomous technology lets drivers relax on expressways.

The new vehicle comes with a redesigned logo as the firm tries to reinvigorate its business. Nissan plans to release 12 models worldwide by the end of next year. Nissan President & CEO Uchida Makoto said, “We put all of Nissan’s most advanced technology into this car. We want to excite customers and really hope they enjoy it.”

Toyota, Honda and Mazda also aim to make full-fledged inroads into the EV market this business year. There is plenty of room for growth with electric vehicles currently only accounting for 0.5 percent of Japan’s new car sales.
