Nissan and Suzuki announce future EV plans

The Japanese car brands have unveiled their "green agenda" plans.

Under the Nissan Ambition 2030 banner, the company plans to launch 23 electrified models by 2030 - 15 of them will be pure EVs. The company also wants its EVs to make up 50% of its global sales by 2030, and achieve carbon-neutrality by 2050.

Among these new cars will be the cars in the 'Out' range: Chill-Out, a Sunderland-built electric crossover that will replace the Nissan Leaf, a radically-styled open-top sports car called Max-Out and a pick-up truck called Surf-Out. Let's hope these plans will not be cancelled at the last minute like Jaguar did with the electric XJ (I'm still pretty pissed at them for that).

Suzuki meanwhile has announced that it will make its first step into the EV industry in 2025 when they will launch their first electric vehicle. Up until now, the company hasn't had the necessity to do so due to the small size of its' cars engines. In the UK, all of their cars are available with at least 48-volt mild-hybrid technology.

I'm excited for both of the companies plans, firstly because owning a car like the Nissan Max-Out just automatically transforms you into a chad, and also because if Suzuki steps into the EV market, it could provide affordable green motoring that we all need.
