Nissan LEAF electric vehicle production process detailed
Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. has started production at its Oppama facility for
the all-new 100% electric, zero-emission Nissan LEAF, which is slated to go
on sale in December in Japan and the United States, and from early 2011, in
select markets in Europe. In November, the company will begin exports to
the United States, followed by shipments to Europe in December.
"This is a significant milestone, not only for Nissan and the
Renault-Nissan Alliance, but also for the entire automotive industry," said
Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn at the Nissan LEAF offline ceremony.
"Consumers are clear. They want sustainable and affordable mobility...and
the Alliance is leading the way with cars that deliver exactly that, with
the reliability, excitement and performance that consumers demand. The
high-quality, innovative Nissan LEAF will radically transform what
consumers expect from automobile manufacturers worldwide."
Nissan LEAF will be produced at the Oppama Plant along with popular
gasoline models such as Nissan Juke and Nissan Cube. Part of the assembly
line has been modified to mount battery modules at the stage of production
where fuel tanks are traditionally installed, and motors and inverters are
mounted at the point where engines are installed in gasoline-powered
vehicles. Production quality and efficiency are assured by applying the
Nissan Production Way (NPW) in every step of the assembly process.
Nissan LEAF's lithium-ion battery modules are manufactured at the
Automotive Energy Supply Corporation (AESC) operation in Zama, Japan, which
is a joint-venture of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and NEC Corporation. The
battery module, which contains 4 battery cells, are assembled at Zama and
then shipped to the Nissan Oppama facility, where 48 of them are assembled
into the electric car's battery pack.
Hidetoshi Imazu, Executive Vice President of Manufacturing, said, "Oppama
will serve as the 'Mother Plant' for the production of Nissan LEAF. We will
use all of the know-how and learnings from Oppama to ensure the highest
quality at all sites that manufacture Nissan EVs."
Sites for future production of Nissan EVs include Smyrna, Tennessee, in the
United States and Sunderland, England, in the UK.
The Oppama plant has an annual production capacity of 50,000 units. Nissan
LEAF will start production at Smyrna in late 2012 and at Sunderland in
early 2013. At full ramp up, Smyrna will have an annual production capacity
of 150,000 units, and Sunderland will have a capacity of 50,000 units.
Nissan LEAF is the first 100% electric, zero-emission vehicle to be
produced for the Renault-Nissan Alliance. Nissan, together with its
Alliance partner, Renault, aims to be a global leader in zero-emission
mobility. To date, the Alliance has signed 80 partnerships for
zero-emission mobility with governments, municipalities and companies
