Nissan is investing in its electric future with major manufacturing updates at its Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant right here in Mississippi. It will serve as the automaker’s center for EV production in the U.S.
Nissan will infuse $500 million into the plant, which will be dedicated to manufacturing EV models in both the INFINITI lineup and the Nissan lineup.
“Today’s announcement is the first of several new investments that will drive the EV revolution in the United States,” said Ashwani Gupta, chief operating officer, Nissan Motor Corporation, Ltd. “Nissan is making a strong investment in Canton’s future, bringing the latest technology, training and process to create a truly best-in-class EV manufacturing team.”
This investment is another step in Nissan’s plan to develop 15 all-EV models by 2030 as part as the automaker’s mission of Nissan Ambition 2030. In all, the automaker plans to manufacture 23 models for both its brands’ lineups with electrified powertrains.
Nissan plans to transform its operations around the world into a carbon neutral enterprise by 2050. By 2030, Nissan fully electric vehicle sales in the U.S. will account for 40 percent of the automaker’s accounts.
