Nissan shows future EVs with Surf-Out pickup, three other concepts 

Updated Dec 01, 2021 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

Nissan is gearing up to expand its EV market presence. 

In order to hasten and strengthen its position in the global electric vehicle market, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. recently unveiled the Nissan Ambition 2030. The gist of this is the marque’s intentions of introducing more EV models in the coming 10 years, therefore expanding its EV market presence. This in turn supports the Japanese brand’s mission to become totally carbon neutral by 2050.

The Nissan Surf-Out is certainly a lifestyle truck, but we reckon it will be practical as well

One of the highlights of the Nissan Ambition 2030 is the Nissan Futures collection of four EV concepts. These include the Surf-Out pickup truck concept vehicle, which is a rugged but futuristic-looking pickup truck designed to meet the needs of adventurous and outdoorsy users. It is also joined by the Hang-Out van, the Chill-Out crossover, as well as the sporty-looking Max-Out convertible. 

Eventually, Nissan will base their future models on these four concept vehicles. To be exact, there will be 15 new EVs and possibly five hybrids in the aforementioned brand’s lineup by 2030. If we’re to guess, most of these will be based on the EV concepts under Nissan Futures.

In the same press release, Nissan also revealed that these upcoming models will be using their all-solid-state battery (ASSB) technology. This can reduce charging times by as much as a third of what they are now. These can also reduce the costs of production, and it might even conquer the gap between the current price divide between EVs and combustion vehicles. The ASSB will be available on Nissan vehicles by 2028.

Furthermore, Nissan’s 2030 initiative also seeks to expand the capabilities of the Pro-PILOT autonomous driving tech, and the brand’s proprietary advanced driver-assist technologies. For the Pro-PILOT, this will be getting a totally new LIDAR system by 2030. More Nissan vehicles will then get advanced driver-assist tech in the same timeframe. 

And to support the subsequent release of more EV models, Nissan also stated that it is expanding its EV36Zero manufacturing and service ecosystem. It will be hiring more employees, and it will be banking on its partner brands in the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance to support this endeavor.
