Nissan Race to Zero: Innovation for complete “Electrification”
Nissan announced that it was participating in the Un-backed Race to Zero campaign, accelerating the company’s goals of full “electrification,” electrification and carbon neutrality.
Nissan also signed the campaign’s business ambition to commit 1.5°C, aligning Nissan with the goal of keeping global temperatures rise to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. Nissan participated in the Science Based Targets (SBTi) initiative as a prerequisite for participating in the campaign. Nissan’s targets to reduce carbon below 2°C have been validated by SBTi, ensuring they are aligned with climate science.

In 2010, Nissan launched the LEAF, the world’s first mass-produced electric vehicle, and through a range of new electric vehicles and electrified technologies circulating around the world, continues to bring innovation and excitement to driving and mobility with zero emissions.
Earlier this year, Nissan pledged to achieve carbon neutrality in all its operations and product life cycle by 2050. Nissan is seeking to accelerate these efforts through initiatives such as the Nissan EV36Zero, the new construction project that combines electric vehicle production, battery manufacturing and renewable energy generation.
Central to Nissan’s carbon neutrality design is the proliferation of electric vehicles and technologies. This began in 2010 and continues today with the expansion of Nissan’s unique e-POWER technology and new pure electric vehicles such as the Nissan Ariya crossover. Nissan aims for 100% of its all-new vehicles in the key markets of Japan, China, the United States and Europe by the early 2030s to be “electrified”.
Earlier this year Nissan announced its long-term commitment to the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship by the end of the twelfth 2025-2026 season, bringing the excitement of zero-emission electric vehicles to the global public.

To accelerate this “journey”, Nissan recently unveiled the Nissan EV36Zero, a plan for the future of the automotive industry. Demonstrating the company’s holistic 360-degree approach to zero emissions, an iconic £1 billion electric vehicle (EV) hub in the UK creates the UK’s first global EV production ecosystem and brings together electric vehicles, renewables and battery production to accelerate the move towards carbon neutrality.
In addition to the development of new vehicles and technologies, Nissan will continue its cooperation with partners worldwide on innovation issues and development of the electrical ecosystem around electric vehicles, covering renewable energy production, energy storage, the use of EV batteries in a second life cycle and the continuous development of the “4R” business model (Reuse, Reconstruction, Resale, Recycling), for the benefit of communities.
