Nissan Electric SUV

Nissan IMx Crossover Concept

The Race For The All-Electric SUV Segment Continues To Attract The Attention Of Global Automotive Manufacturers.  Nissan’s Highly Anticipated All-Electric SUV Is Expected To Debut At The Tokyo Motor Show In October 2019  


  • You may have not driven in the ubiquitous all-electric Nissan Leaf, but I assume you have seen it several times on U.K. roads.  In fact, the all-electric Nissan Leaf is one of the best selling electric cars globally, with more than 400,000 sold.  Yes, there are more Nissan Leaf electric vehicles on the roads than the hugely successful Tesla Model 3 
  • The Japanese automotive behemoth, Nissan Motor Company, is keen to leverage its enviable experience and track record with the Nissan Leaf pure electric car,  to launch an all-electric compact SUV.  Surprisingly, it has taken Nissan much longer to introduce a new EV model, given its leadership position in zero-emission mobility

  • The Nissan battery electric vehicle (BEV) will be based on the IMx crossover concept, unveiled in 2017 at the Tokyo Motor Show 
  • The pure electric SUV is expected to have a range of up to 300 miles on a single charge, placing it favourably in comparison to other available electric SUVs.  As an example, the range for the Tesla Model X is 315 miles, while the Jaguar I-PACE has a range of 292 miles 
  • The electric SUV is expected to be built on the Nissan’s new EV platform, with potentially impressive performance figures.  The all-electric crossover is expected to achieve 0 to 62 mph in under 5 seconds 
  • Prices are yet to be ascertained, but we can expect the Nissan electric SUV to be more ‘affordable’ than some of the premium electric SUVs with a similar range
  • The model is expected to be available for sale in 2021

Nissan has demonstrated strong vision in the EV sector by launching the pure electric Leaf in 2010.  Nearly, a decade later, the world is awakening to ‘zero-emission road transportation’.  The Japanese automotive manufacturer is certainly well placed to leverage its experience and knowledge, to create another global EV success.  

There is undoubtedly a significant commercial opportunity to exploit in the mid-priced EV SUV segment. The key for success is creating an electric SUV model that enables affordability and migration from internal combustion engines (ICE) to zero-emission driving.  With a decade of experience, we assume that Nissan has achieved this realization.  If not, then they have failed to truly leverage the valuable experience thus far.
