Rapid growth continues in the electric vehicle industry. In just two months, the Japanese auto giant announced it was stopping all development of combustion engines in favor of electric vehicles. In collaboration with the US Space Agency, it is now working on developing an electric car battery that is certain to revolutionize the world of electric vehicles.

By 2028, Nissan plans to replace all its lithium-ion batteries with solid-state batteries that will be integrated into a wide range of devices. Aside from its size being half of the current batteries, it will also be able to fully charge in just 15 minutes, according to

Nissan announced last week that it needs a combination of different technologies to develop batteries, and also set out an ambitious plan called Nissan Ambition 2030, which calls for solid-state batteries to be introduced to its electric vehicles by 2028.

By reducing the cost of all-solid-state batteries to $75 per kWh in six years, and to $65 per kWh thereafter, electric vehicles will be priced in the same category as vehicles with an internal combustion engine. As a result, Nissan plan to use solid-state batteries in a number of types of vehicles, including pickup trucks, so that electric vehicles become more sophisticated, popular, and cost-effective.
