Nissan’s 2013 Sustainability Report Highlights Automaker’s Unmatched Commitment to Electric Vehicles

In June, Nissan published its 2013 Sustainability Report, in which we find several interesting electric vehicle related statements.

First of all is that the Japanese automaker is still thinking bold in terms of the electric vehicle’s future. We all know of the prediction of 10% EV market share in 2020 made by Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn, and the prediction of cumulative 1.5 million EV sales by the Renault-Nissan Alliance before 2017. But the long-term goal is almost 100% market share by 2050.

“As a zero-emission leader, our mission includes solving issues and clearing up doubts about EVs, such as driving range and availability of charging infrastructure. We are working on solutions by capitalizing on the diversity and cross-functional corporate culture that we have fostered throughout the years. We believe that practically all vehicles should be replaced with zero-emission vehicles, such as EVs and fuel-cell electric vehicles, by 2050 to help protect the global environment. The launch of Nissan LEAF is an initial step. Nissan is creating a totally new global EV market as a zero-emission pioneer, and our efforts are winning recognition worldwide.”

Sales Results

To date, Renault-Nissan Alliance sold over 100,000 electric vehicles (including Renault Twizy). About two thirds of these are Nissan LEAFs.
