Nissan to Develop Low Cost & Fast Charging EV Batteries

Nissan's R&D and manufacturing divisions will utilize this prototype production facility and accelerate the practical application of all-solid-state batteries

Nissan has announced to develop new and improved electric vehicle (EV) battery technology that promises faster charging and lower prices.

Nissan EV BatteryThe Japanese company has unveiled its prototype production facility for laminated all-solid-state battery cells, which the company aims to bring to market in 2028.

Kunio Nakaguro, Executive Vice President in charge of R&D, said, “Nissan has been a leader in electrification technology through a wide range of R&D activities, from molecular-level battery material research to the development of safe, high-performance EVs. Our initiatives even include city development using EVs as storage batteries.”

Nissan has also said that it wants to launch an EV with all-solid-state batteries developed in-house by fiscal 2028. Under its long-term vision, Nissan Ambition 2030, the company plans to establish a pilot production line at its Yokohama Plant in fiscal 2024.

The company in a statement said: “All-solid-state batteries are expected to be a game-changing technology for accelerating the popularity of electric vehicles.”

This prototype facility, within the Nissan Research Center in Kanagawa Prefecture, is aimed to further promote the development of all-solid-state batteries.

Nissan believes all-solid-state batteries can help bring EVs to the same cost level as gasoline-powered vehicles. The company expects to use all-solid-state batteries in a wide range of vehicle segments, including pickup trucks, making its EVs more competitive.

Nissan said it is veering towards the development of all-solid-state batteries based on the knowledge gained from its experience in working on this technology.

They have an energy density approximately twice that of conventional lithium-ion batteries, significantly shorter charging time due to superior charge/discharge performance, and lower cost thanks to the opportunity of using less expensive materials, it added.
