Nissan Announces Two All-Electric Vehicles From Its Mississippi Plant
Just a few days ago, Japanese auto manufacturer Nissan announced that it was to invest close to 640 million CAD to transform its Canton assembly plant to build all-new Nissan and Infiniti EV models starting in 2025. Investment supports retraining and upskilling nearly 2,000 jobs, transforming the Canton plant into a centre for EV manufacturing and technology. This EV investment is one of several in the U.S. by the Japanese giant over the next five years. By 2030, Nissan is targeting 40% of its US vehicle sales to be fully electric, with even more to be electrified. New vehicles are part of the Nissan Ambition 2030 plan calling for 23 electrified models for the Nissan and Infiniti brands globally, including 15 all-electric vehicles by 2030. The plant currently builds four models: Altima, Frontier, TITAN and TITAN XD.
