    Nissan plans to roll out four new battery-electric vehicles, while Infiniti will gain two EVs during the same time period. This information confirms the Nissan/Infiniti brands will consume half of the EV's planned by mothership alliance,*Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi.

    Back in September alliance CEO Carlos Ghosn announced a multiyear business plan that included the alliance launching 12 battery-electric vehicles by 2022. The business plan did not outline which brands within the alliance would gain the new EV's.*

    Toshihiro Hirai, Nissan*corporate vice president for powertrain and EV engineering, has since confirmed where at least half the EV's will end up. In speaking with*Automotive News*he confirmed the breakdown of four for Nissan, two for Infiniti.*

    Details of the six new products are, of course, still unknown at this time. Nissan recently revealed the IMx Concept, an electric crossover, at the Tokyo Motor Show. This vehicle is likely previewing one of Nissan's upcoming EV's given the popularity of crossovers and Nissan's vast portfolio of them.*

    Hirari went on to clarify that the six vehicles will be exclusively electric, not simply electrified with Nissan's ePower mild hybrid, which is also expected to come stateside soon.*

    Although the Nissan brand has not detailed electrification plans beyond the next five years, Infiniti has confirmed that all vehicles after 2021 will be fully electric or offer Nissan ePower. Most luxury brands have announced similar plans.*
