Nissan provides overview of progress on environmental commitments; 15 new hybrid models by 2016

At a press briefing in Yokohama earlier this week, Nissan Chief Operating Officer Toshiyuki Shiga provided an update on the company’s environmental commitments under the Nissan Green Program 2016.

Thanks to environmentally friendly technology and new products, we are completely in line with our targets for the reduction of C02 in the usage of vehicles. Other areas we’re tackling starts with manufacturing, logistics, offices and sales outlets.

—Toshiyuki Shiga

The company plans to add 15 new hybrid models by 2016 and new EVs. These will build on an 19% rise in average fuel economy since 2005 in major markets, which Nissan intends to improve even further, Shiga said.

Longer term, Nissan aims to begin reducing total corporate C02 emissions in the 2020s, even as vehicle sales are projected to rise dramatically. Also in the plan is a commitment to zero-emission leadership, minimizing the use of scarce natural resources and industry-leading fuel efficiency.



Very interesting. Nissan-Renault seems to be serious about catching up with Toyota with electrified vehicles in the next five years or so.
