Nissan to up EV game in Europe

Nissan has announced plans to launch five new electric vehicles in Europe over the next three years, writes Brian Byrne.

These will include a new generation Leaf, an electric Juke, and a new Micra to be sold only in EV form. Two light commercial electric vehicles will also be introduced.

A third generation of the company's e-Power hybrid drivetrain, which runs the car on electric power from a battery charged by a combustion engine, is also being developed. 

Nissan in Europe is aiming to increase sales volume by 40pc by the end of 2026.
