Nissan unleashes new electric-vehicle era at Auto China 2018

Nissan is bringing three zero-emission vehicles to Auto China 2018 that embody its Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision – including the company's first electric vehicle made in China for Chinese customers.

“As part of our effort to ensure sustainable growth in China, we’re launching a major EV technology effort, with Nissan Intelligent Mobility as our guiding vision,” José Muñoz, Nissan’s chief performance officer and chairman of the Management Committee for China, said at the trade show in Beijing. “We’re unleashing a new era of EVs in China, providing Chinese customers with electrified products that are safer, more stable and offer a better customer experience.”

Added Munoz, “It speaks to our ambition to become China’s EV leader by delivering more than 20 electrified models over the next five years across the Nissan, Venucia, INFINITI and Dongfeng automotive brands.”

Nissan Intelligent Mobility is the company’s vision for changing how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into society.

Premiering at the show is the all-new Nissan Sylphy Zero Emission, built in China for the Chinese market. The model brings together the Nissan Sylphy’s reputation for durability, quality, reliability and value with a proven, fully electric drivetrain.

As Nissan’s first mass-production electric car in China, the Nissan Sylphy Zero Emission shares a platform and technologies with the Nissan LEAF, the world’s best-selling electric vehicle. The new model features fast-charging capabilities and a 338 kilometer driving range, according to Chinese regulatory standards.1

The car also includes Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies such as Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Emergency Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Warning. It will go on sale later in 2018.

The Nissan IMx KURO, an electric crossover concept vehicle, offers showgoers a glimpse of the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility. The car’s advanced features include Nissan’s exclusive Brain-to-Vehicle technology, which intercepts and analyzes the driver’s brain waves to improve reaction times and increase driving comfort.
