Nissan to build two all-new, all-electric models at Mississippi assembly plant

Nissan’s Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant in Mississippi will become a center for US EV production, including the INFINITI brand. The company is investing $500 million in Nissan Canton to support production of two all-new, all-electric vehicles. Production is expected to begin in 2025.

Nissan’s investment is supported by strong partnerships with state, county and local governments.

The announcement supports Nissan Ambition 2030, calling for 23 electrified models for the Nissan and Infiniti brands globally, including 15 all-electric vehicles, by 2030.

Nissan has set the goal to achieve carbon neutrality across the company’s global operations and the life cycle of its products by 2050 by pursuing further innovations in electrification and manufacturing technology. As part of this effort, Nissan is targeting 40% of its US vehicle sales volume to be fully electric by 2030, with even more to be electrified.

Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant is celebrating 19 years of manufacturing operations in 2022. The plant employs approximately 5,000 people and has built nearly 5 million vehicles since opening in 2003. The plant currently builds four models: Altima, Frontier, TITAN and TITAN XD.

With this announcement, Nissan now has invested $4 billion in the facility. The company has invested more than $13 billion in its US manufacturing operations collectively.

Great news!
I'll buy a new Nissan all electric vehicle to save the planet.

After I scrap my 10 year old Nissan all electric vehicle Nissan Leaf that works just fine, except Nissan will not supply a replacement battery.............

Fool me once........


The Nissan Frontier is built at this plant, updated for 2022 has a 310 hp 3.8l V6 with no other options. In other countries, there are rumors that the Mitsubishi PHEV platform will be used on the Mitsubishi L200 and the Nissan Navara (the US “Frontier”).
The Mitsubishi PHEV has a 20 kWh battery and the Nissan 2.4l 4 cylinder engine. This would be an excellent choice for the Frontier. It would also give it another option against it’s main competition - the Toyota Tacoma.


Owned both a 2003 Nissan Frontier and a 2013 Nissan Leaf. The Leaf which actually cost me close to nothing to own (long story), had to scrap though the body/interior were in perfect condition - did not want to pay over $10k for a water pump and a new battery. The 2003 Frontier is still in my son-in-law’s driveway.


Nissan should have taken care of their customers


@ ron ingman:
Why don't you contact:
Primarily, they are engaged in Tesla-after-sale -service. But they may have pity with your Leaf and perform a battery update to your liking.
