Nissan aims to bring solid-state batteries for electric vehicles to market by 2028.
Nissan announced its prototype manufacturing facility for all-solid-state battery cells. This prototype facility located at the Nissan Research Center in Kanagawa Prefecture will also advance the development of fully solid-state batteries. Nissan is aiming to bring the battery to market by 2028.
In tandem with the Nissan Ambition 2030, the automaker aims to launch an electric vehicle with an all-solid-state battery developed in-house by 2028. It also plans to build a test production line. experiment at the Yokohama Plant in 2024, with the materials, design and manufacturing processes for on-line prototype production to be studied at the prototype production facility. Nissan says it believes fully solid-state batteries could drop to $75/kWh by 2028 and $65/kWh after that, which would reduce the cost of electric vehicles to the same cost as ICE vehicles.
Operating In addition to this, the company’s initiatives even include city development using EVs as storage batteries. Nakaguro adds: “Nissan has been a leader in electrification through a wide range of R&D activities, from research into molecular-level battery materials to the development of safe, high-performance electric vehicles. working together to utilize this prototype manufacturing facility and accelerate the practical application of full solid-state batteries.
Full solid-state batteries have approximately twice the energy density of conventional lithium-ion batteries, have significantly shorter charging times due to their superior charge/discharge efficiency, and are less expensive to manufacture due to Use cheaper materials. Nissan is aiming to use this battery in a variety of vehicles, including pickup trucks.
