The Nissan EV36Zero — centered around the Nissan manufacturing facility in Sunderland, United Kingdom — is aimed to “supercharge the company's drive to carbon neutrality and establish a new 360-degree solution for zero-emission motoring.”

Built on an initial investment of £1 billion by Nissan with its partners Envision AESC and Sunderland City Council, the Nissan EV36Zero, the carmaker shared, “brings together electric vehicles, renewable energy and battery production, setting a blueprint for the future of the automotive industry.”

According to Nissan President and Chief Executive Officer Makoto Uchida, the project is part of the company's pioneering efforts to achieve carbon neutrality throughout the entire life cycle of its products. “Our comprehensive approach includes not only the development and production of EVs, but also the use of on-board batteries as energy storage and their reuse for secondary purposes,” he said.

Uchida noted that the Nissan EV36Zero will greatly push the brand efforts to achieve carbon neutrality in Europe.

"The experience and know-how gained through the project announced today will be shared globally, enhancing Nissan's global competitiveness,” Uchida mentioned. “Nissan will continue to leverage its strengths in electrification to become a company that continues to provide value to its customers and society."

"Building on over 30 years of history in the area, this is a pivotal moment in our electric vehicle revolution and securing its future for decades to come,” Johnson explained. "Commitments like these exemplify our ability to create hundreds of green jobs and boost British industry, whilst also allowing people to travel in an affordable and sustainable way so we can eliminate our contributions to climate change."
