the future of Nissan

We are driving towards a more sustainable future, using our purpose, products and technology to deliver the future of mobility today.

For the past 20 years Nissan has been fully committed to raising environmental awareness and sustainability at the Sunderland plant. We have already seen 10 wind turbines installed on site that contribute 6.6MW power to the plant and a further 4.75MW generated from the current solar farm.

Today Nissan’s vision for the future is brighter than ever with the launch of “Ambition 2030” alongside the announcement of the EV36Zero project and the company’s journey to carbon neutrality.


What is EV36Zero?

EV36Zero will transform Nissan Sunderland into a flagship EV hub, bringing together electric vehicles, renewable energy and battery production, and setting a blueprint for the future of the automotive industry. The project brings together a new electric crossover for our plant, the Envision-AESC gigafactory, and the renewable electric microgrid.

The 3 pillars of EV36Zero

New generation 100% all-electric Nissan crossover

We are building on our EV expertise and the worldwide success of the Nissan LEAF to produce a new-generation, all-electric crossover in the UK for global markets. The new vehicle promises next-generation vehicle styling, efficiency, and battery technology that makes the switch to electric driving even more accessible

The Envision-AESC gigafactory

Our long-standing battery partners, Enivison-AESC are investing in building a second Gigafactory adjacent to our Sunderland plant. Already supplying batteries for the Nissan LEAF, Envision-AESC will now provide next-generation battery technology for Nissan vehicles.

A 100% renewable energy microgrid

The microgrid represents an infrastructure project that’s the first of its kind in the UK. In total, the microgrid aims to reduce our carbon footprint by 55,000 tonnes per year, supporting Nissan’s wider Ambition 2030 carbon reduction programme.

Ambition 2030

Nissan aims to become a truly sustainable company, driving towards a cleaner, safer, and more inclusive world. The vision supports our goal to be carbon neutral across the life cycle of our products by fiscal year 2050.
