Nissan Motor Corporation intends to switch all its vehicles sold in China to either electric or hybrid vehicles by 2025, as the Japanese car manufacturer attempts to keep pace with Beijing’s push for automobiles with smaller carbon footprints, reports Nikkei Asian Review.

Nissan is set to introduce nine models in China by 2025, that will either be fully electric or hybrid, starting with the release a model equipped with its hybrid ‘e-Power system’ in China next year. The company is also expected to launch its Ariya electric model next year. Additionally, in the next three years, the number of e-Power models is expected to be increased to five or six including its Sylphy sedan.

The Chinese government is reported to have re-classified hybrid vehicles as fuel-efficient vehicles, which is claimed to make it easier for automakers to meet production quotas. As part of its drive to make all new vehicles released in 2035 environmentally friendly, half of the autos are expected to be zero-emission vehicles and the other half would be gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles.

Nissan plans to increase the sales ratio of electric vehicles in China from 2% in the fiscal year 2018 to 23% by 2023, but the company states that it could raise the goal further as it reviews sales strategy over the next five years.
