LONDON -- Nissan said all new models it launches in Europe from now will be fully electric and it plans to sell only electric vehicles in the region by 2030.
Nissan confirmed two new battery-electric cars for Europe. It said one of these will be produced at its Sunderland plant in northern England where it builds the Leaf EV. Nissan did not give details of the new model. The automaker has previously said it will add an electric SUV to replace the Leaf in the medium term.
The second model is an all-new electric car that will succeed the Micra as the entry-level vehicle in Nissan's line-up. The EV will be built by Renault in Douai, France alongside the full-electric Renault 5.
Nissan on Monday unveiled the Concept 20-23 for a Europe-focused small sporty electric hatchback ahead of the launch of the Micra successor, which is expected in 2025.
