A Unique Future on the Roads

One great thing about our goals is that they are always subjective to change. This enables us big time in terms of adapting to an ever-changing environment around us. In fact, the flexibility we have here does everything to enhance our knowledge pool in a meaningful way, and when you have such a productive setup as a part of the fold, it becomes almost natural to try and project it on a grander scale. Human beings have been doing exactly that throughout their history. Although the efficiencies associated with these attempts varied heavily, each one of them pushed us forward under some capacity. Nevertheless, in case we really have to pick one that triggered our biggest leap to this day, it will be, hands down, technology. The reasons for technology’s success go beyond just complimenting our flexibility. It offered us a world of wriggle room, while also ensuring a greater overall experience. The knowledge we were gaining now on the back of gazillion tech by-products elevated us to a point where separation between the current generation and the ones that came before it got too big for anyone to successfully comprehend. Currently, the world looks determined to further pull away, and in a bid to do so, we are dabbling with even more advanced tech permutations. One permutation, however, that happens to be leading the charge for automotive industry is the EV vehicle technology. Already boasting a strong presence across the sector, EV vehicles are being touted for domination, as they expand their radius by the day. If anything, a recent announcement from Nissan signals even bigger things within this niche.

Nissan has officially announced its “Ambition 2030” project, which will see the company investing over $2 trillion in developing EVs and battery technology over the next five years. Nissan is going to approach the next decade with an intention of having at least 15 new EVs by 2030. Furthermore, it must be noted that the company expects to power these EVs through all-solid-state-batteries (ASSB). ASSB brings in a ton of benefits like reduced charging time, but the automotive market is still yet to witness anything like it in flesh and bones. To facilitate its ambition, Nissan already has a pilot plant up and coming in Yokohoma around 2024.

Apart from the holistic technology, Nissan is dreaming of bolstering your driving experience through its ProPilot driver assistance technology and next-generation LIDAR systems that are going to be “on virtually every new model by fiscal year 2030.”

During Nissan’s announcement, we also learned about the first four cars, which will kickstart the Ambition 2030 project. The said four cars are Chill-Out, Surf-Out, Hang-Out, and Max-Out.
