Nissan Embraces Post-Brexit Britain For Auto Production And May Double Output - Reviews

24th January 2021
"Nissan could double production to up to 700,000 cars and SUVs per year of it’s Sunderland plant."

Japan's Nissan said the Brexit deal in Britain would be an overall plus for its local Sunderland factory, which could double production to up to 700,000 cars and SUVs per year, and became a huge benefit for its electric vehicles.

Toyota, Honda, Tata Motors of India's, Jaguar Land Rover, BMW's Mini and Stellantis's Vauxhall are also currently the major car manufacturers in Britain. The long-term future of the auto industry has been challenged following Britain's withdrawal agreement with the European Union. Honda has already agreed to shut its factory in Britain.

The EU's free trade agreement with Japan indicated that the likes of Toyota and Nissan would discover that factories in Europe were not needed. In particular, it was thought that Nissan was considering moving Honda out of the region.

A change of heart, particularly with its focus on the future of electric vehicles, was the news from Tokyo that Nissan now had optimistic thoughts about the future of its British plant.

Whether other manufacturers see the future in the same way remains to be seen.

Brexit for Nissan is a positive. We’ll take this opportunity to redefine the auto industry in the U.K.,” said Nissan chief operating officer Ashwani Gupta, according to Britain’s Daily Telegraph.

In certain circumstances, our competitiveness is improved (by Brexit). For some of the cases it is par. It depends on which car, but competitiveness is definitely improved in electric vehicles,” Gupta said.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson welcomed the news. 

Gupta said the Sunderland plant could nearly double production. 

Gupta said reports were exaggerated that new border controls could be a major barrier to imports and exports.

To fill a form at the border is nothing. People are prepared for it,” Gupta said.

After Brexit, many analysts questioned the long-term future of the mass car manufacturers of the British auto industry, claiming they would have to move direction to lower production with greater value. They will have to shift upmarket because in mass market cars, other global suppliers would be more successful.

Nissan unveils its first electric SUV, the Ariya with detailed specs

7th September 2020
"A plug-in version of the Nissan NV van."

The Nissan Ariya, the company's first all-electric SUV, will be able to drive up to 300 miles on a single charge and features a high-tech interior, with almost no buttons or knobs, according to the automaker.

The vehicle was unveiled during an online event Wednesday.

Nissan became one of the first major car companies to offer an all-electric car when it introduced the Leaf in 2010. At the time, Nissan had big plans to make a whole lineup of electric vehicles, which then-CEO Carlos Ghosn predicted would make up 10% of the global car market by 2020.

So far, things haven't turned out the way. Last year, electric vehicles made up just 2.6% of all cars sold globally, according to the International Energy Agency. Besides a new and improved Leaf, the only other electric vehicle Nissan offers widely is the eNV, a plug-in version of the Nissan NV van, which isn't sold in the U.S. Nissan executives have said the company will come out with eight new electric vehicles by 2022.

The Ariya crossover SUV will become Nissan's second electric vehicle available in the US. It's bigger and roomier than the Leaf, a compact car, and has a design somewhat like Nissan's Murano SUV. The most noticeable difference is the front "grille" design. Electric cars don't require nearly as much incoming air as the gasoline-powered cars, so the front grille is purely a design feature. The Ariya's grille has a large sunken area with a subtle pattern that's supposed to resemble a traditional Japanese Kumiko design. It also has a slightly redesigned Nissan logo that lights up.

Inside, the Ariya has a particularly roomy interior thanks to the lack of an engine under the hood. Things that usually impinge on interior space, like the air conditioning equipment, are located under the hood instead.

In place of buttons and switches, most so-called secondary controls -- for things like climate control and the stereo -- are handled through "capacitive haptic switches,touch-sensitive icons that light up on the dashboard."

The Ariya's large flat battery pack is mounted under the SUV's floor, which allows the vehicle to have a completely flat floor, an arrangement also found in a number of other electric models including the Tesla Model Y.

The Ariya will be available with Nissan's ProPilot Assist driver assistance technology that allows some hands-free driving on highways in some countries. The hands-free driving technology, which is similar to systems offered by General Motors and, soon, Ford, will be available in the US first on the Ariya, a Nissan spokesman said.

The electric SUV will be available in front- or all-wheel-drive and with a choice of two battery pack sizes. The base model will have a 63-kilowatt-hour battery pack. With the larger 87 kilowatt-hour pack, the Ariya will be able to go about 300 miles on a charge based on US EPA tests, according to Nissan. Nissan did not release a range estimate for the SUV with the smaller battery pack.

The Ariya will be able to go from a stop to 60 miles an hour in about 5 seconds, Nissan chief operating officer Ashwani Gupta said in an online meeting with journalists. That performance is similar to Nissan's 370Z sports car.

The Ariya will go on sale in Japan in the middle of 2021 and the United States later next year. Prices in the US will start at about $40,000. That's a few thousand dollars less than competitors like the Ford Mustang Mach-E or the Tesla Model Y.
