Nissan reveals ‘game changer’ electric vehicle battery

Nissan unveils new solid-state battery, enhancing EV efficiency with higher energy density, faster charging, and reduced costs.

Technology

Nissan has revealed a new solid-state vehicle battery that promises to be a game-changer for the promotion of electric vehicles.

The battery was shown to members of the media at the Yokohama Plant in Kanagawa Prefecture.

All-solid-state batteries, which Nissan says will be game-changers for EVs, have the potential for energy density around twice that of conventional lithium-ion batteries, significantly shorter charging times 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.
