Nissan confirms plans for a £1bn Electric Vehicle Battery Factory in Sunderland, England.
A new £1bn electric vehicle battery gigafactory will be built in northeast England by Nissan and its partners to support the production of the carmaker’s new all-electric SUV in the UK.
The EV36Zero electric vehicle hub will be located in Sunderland, with a 9GW battery gigafactory centred around the Japanese group’s existing car plant there. It will be powered by a new renewable energy ‘microgrid’ developed by Sunderland City Council and a battery storage facility powered by used car batteries.
It will invest £423mln into the new hub and the Chinese-owned partner Envision AESC, which owns and operates an existing battery production in Sunderland for the crNissan LEAF, will invest £450mln.
The formal planning process is now beginning with Sunderland City Council for an initial 9GWh plant, Nissan said, with a potential future investment of £1.8bn by Envision AESC by 2030 and potential on-site for up to 35GWh.
