Dongfeng-Nissan Commits To Massive Electric Car Rollout, 20 By 2022

FEB 12 2018 BY MARK KANE 5

Dongfeng Motor Co., the 50-50 joint venture between China’s Dongfeng Group and Nissan Motor Co. announced a midterm plan that envisions widespread electrification.

Venucia e30 (aka Nissan LEAF)

The company intends to invest 60 billion RMB ($9.54 billion) in manufacturing, products, R&D, human resources, CSR and the environment to support its sustainable growth over the next five years.

Sales are expected to increase from 1 million annually to 2.6 million vehicles, while revenue is expected to rise to 300 billion RMB ($47.7 billion) by 2022 .

A big part of the equation is electrification as 20 electrified models (Nissan, Venucia and Dongfeng) are scheduled for introduction by 2022. That’s out of a total of 40 new models launching by then, so half will be electrified.

First six models, including some series-hybrids like e-POWER, are expected in 2018 and 2019.


  • More than 20 electric models (zero-emission and e-POWER) to be introduced across all brands; six models in 2018 and 2019 across the Nissan, Venucia and Dongfeng brands
  • 30% of all DFL sales in 2022 will be electrified
  • Through providing electrified driving performance with class-leading connectivity and autonomous driving capabilities, INFINITI will have 25% of its portfolio electrified in 2022, transitioning to 100% by 2025
  • Introducing and localizing industry-leading e-component technologies to China

While I’m very keen to see more electric Nissan/Lexus cars in North America, I do wonder how they are going to change the poor attitudes if their dealer network.

“of” vice “if”..

Lexus is Toyota halo branding.
Nissan have Infiniti.

So far, Toyota have not committed to electrifying much.

‘Infiniti’- my bad.

NIssan, Toyota, Honda have great dealer networks and service centers too. Who and where did you get a bad attitude. I can try to correct that.
