Sunday’s Yomiuri reported that Nissan Motor announced on Thursday that it will begin producing two new types of electric vehicles (EV) at its Mississippi plant starting in 2025. The paper said Nissan has been promoting the electrification of automobiles as a pillar of growth, adding that it will boost production and expand the lineup of EVs for the U.S. market. The daily said Nissan is planning to increase the percentage of EVs among the new cars it sells in the United States to more than 40% by 2030. Nissan reportedly plans to invest $500 million in technology for EV-specific assembly lines at the plant. Saturday’s Asahi carried a similar story.
