By 2030, Nissan announced that 40% of its U.S. vehicle sales will be electric vehicles. This comes after the White House officially announced its electrification target for the U.S.
There is no indication yet as to what percentage will be achieved by other forms of electrification.
“Nissan North America, Inc., has a target that more than 40 percent of its U.S. vehicle sales by 2030 will be fully electric, with even more to be electrified.”
Recall that the government’s target in new car sales is 50% by 2030.
Nissan introduced its LEAF electric car in the United States in December 2010. The company has sold 159,200 units so far (as of the end of Q2 2021). Specifically in Q2, the LEAF represented only 4.8% of Nissan’s passenger cars (excluding trucks and SUVs).
Jeremie Papin, chairperson, Nissan Americas said:
“With LEAF, Nissan showed our pioneering spirit in electric vehicles. Now with more than a half-million pure EVs sold and more than 5 billion electric miles driven on roads around the world, we’re helping to lead the electric vehicle revolution. Nissan is fully committed to doing our part toward building a cleaner, safer and more inclusive society for all.”
