Nissan EVs help sustain output

30 June 2015 #Sustainability Case studies

Nissan’s Sunderland plant remains the UK’s largest vehicle producer, manufacturing over 500,000 units for a third successive year. This was in part due to growing demand for Nissan’s 100% electric LEAF model. Electric vehicle production doubled at the plant in 2014 to more than 17,000 units. Production at the UK battery plant increased further as the facility started supplying units for use in the all-electric e-NV200 van, built at Nissan’s Barcelona plant. 2014 also saw output of the Qashqai model passing two million units in record time, fewer than eight years after investing in the crossover segment.
