Nissan New Electric Cars Manufacturing in UK


Nissan has officially announced it will shift production of its manufacturing hub based in the UK to 100% electric power. As a result, the company will release into the market the new generation of three electric vehicles. The revolutionary plan dubbed EV36Zero has a $4 billion investment, signifying a milestone in the global shift from internal combustion engines for the company.

Nissan EV36Zero Center: A Carbon-Neutral Powerhouse

The Nissan EV36Zero Centre, located in Sunderland, will operate on a carbon-neutral basis. Nissan’s main models transform electrification, including the popular Qashqai and Juke, as well as the next generation of Nissan Leaf, which played a pivotal role in the electric vehicle revolution.

Renewable Energy-Powered Facility

An on-site, smaller EV36Zero network will run it using wind and solar energy farms at their disposal. Nissan and its suppliers will be receiving 100% renewable energy from this small-scale network, underscoring Nissan’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

Makoto Uchida, the chief executive officer of Nissan, was very excited about the project, saying, “We are speeding towards a new age for Nissan, the entire industry, and our customers with the introduction of our core European model electric versions."

Nissan's Commitment to Full Electrification in Europe

These announcements solidify Nissan's commitment to making all its new cars in Europe fully electric and achieving a 100% electric passenger vehicle lineup in Europe by 2030.

Nissan X-Trail 2023 Goes Electric in Japan

In January 2023, the all-electric version of Nissan X-Trail was launched in Japan.

Nissan releases an all-electric version of its X-Trail 2023 in Japan, emphasizing strengthening its electric vehicle portfolio worldwide.

Three new electric cars are in the pipeline.

Nissan plans to introduce three new all-electric models to the market. These vehicles represent the future of all three currently manufactured models at the Nissan plant in Sunderland: Nissan Qashqai, Nissan Juke, and Nissan Leaf.

Prime Minister's Vote of Confidence

Speaking about it, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak called the investment “a massive vote of confidence in the UK’s car industry.” He added, “This venture will, without doubt, secure the future of Sunderland as the British Silicon Valley for electric vehicle innovation and manufacturing."

Nissan's Investment Details

Nissan’s investment of $1.38 billion in the United Kingdom includes an extensive supply chain for research and development that manufactures two new electric vehicles. The first phase of EV360 included investing $522 million towards facility renovations, better manufacturing processes, skill training, and supplier tooling.

Inspired by Electric Concepts

Three of the electric car models that are coming soon were inspired by the three electric concept cars known as Nissan Hyper Urban Concept, Nissan Hyper PUNK Concept, and Nissan Chill-out Concept. These models provide distinct designs as well as styling.


The EV36ZERO project shows that Nissan has decided to enter the electric vehicle segment, and it is a giant step into the world of green automobiles. Nissan’s strong resolve and vast contributions have positioned it to shape the future of electric-powered cars and ensure a cleaner environment.
