Nissan Shows Off EV Battery Pilot Line For Solid State Batteries

Nissan showed its in-construction all-solid-state battery pilot line located at its Yokohama Plant in Kanagawa Prefecture. The pilot line is aimed to further promote development and innovative manufacturing technologies for the “game-changing” batteries.

Under the Nissan Ambition 2030 long-term vision, Nissan aims to launch EVs equipped with the batteries by fiscal year 2028.

All-solid-state batteries are considered the “holy grail” for EVs since they have the potential for energy density that’s approximately twice that of conventional lithium-ion batteries. It also offers significantly shorter charging time due to superior charge and discharge performance and lower costs due to less expensive materials.

Nissan plans to use all-solid-state batteries in a wide range of vehicle segments, including pickup trucks, making its EVs more competitive.

Nissan is conducting wide ranging research and development, from molecular-level battery material research to electric vehicle development, and even city development using EVs as storage batteries. Utilizing this experience, Nissan is stepping up development with the goal of practical implementation.
