Nissan accelerate­s goal for European electric car sales


Nissan predicts electric vehicles will make up almost all of its sales in Europe by 2026.

Electric vehicles and hybrid – those with both a petrol engine and electric motor – will represent 98pc of sales in Europe by the 2026 fiscal year, the Japanese carmaker said yesterday.

The new forecast, which revises its earlier target of 75pc, is part of Nissan’s efforts to accelerate its electric vehicle strategy, particular­ly across Europe where emissions controls are tougher.

The early electric vehicle pioneer also lifted its sales expectatio­ns in Japan from 55pc to 58pc.

The revised 2026 goals means that electrifie­d vehicles will amount to almost half of Nissan’s global sales, rising from 40pc to 44pc.
