Nissan Motor said on Wednesday all its “new vehicle offerings” in major markets would be electrified by the early 2030s, as part of the automaker’s on-going to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

The automaker, which plans to cover markets in Japan, China, the United States and Europe, said it will carry out battery innovations, including as solid-state batteries, for electric vehicles (EVs) and further develop its e-POWER hybrid technology for gaining greater energy efficiency.

“We’re determined to help create a carbon-neutral society and accelerate the global effort against climate change,” said Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida.

Nissan’s plans come as worldwide automakers are pivoting from diesel vehicles to electric and hybrid models, while Japan intends to eliminate sales of new gasoline-powered vehicles by the mid-2030s, transiting to EVs including hybrid vehicles and fuel cell vehicles.

Japan laid out a “green growth strategy” last year that includes a goal to replace new gasoline-powered vehicles with EVs by the mid-2030s to help achieve the 2050 carbon-neutral goal.

Japan, where renewable energy accounted for 18% of the country’s power mix in the year ended March 2020, is in the process to evaluate its energy policy.
