Japanese carmaker Nissan Motor will spend JPY2trn ($17.59bn) over the next five years to accelerate the electrification process of its product line-up.

The company aims to introduce 23 electrified models, including 15 new electric vehicles (EVs), by 2030. Furthermore, it expects 50% of Nissan and its luxury brand INFINITI’s line-up to be electric by 2030. In terms of sales mix, the company expects more than 75% of sales in Europe to be from its electric cars, in Japan more than 55%, in China more than 40% and in the US it aims to have 40% of its sales from EVs by 2030.

“The role of companies to address societal needs is increasingly heightened. With Nissan Ambition 2030, we will drive the new age of electrification, advance technologies to reduce carbon footprint and pursue new business opportunities. We want to transform Nissan to become a sustainable company that is truly needed by customers and society,” Makoto Uchida, CEO of Nissan, said in a statement on Monday.

Bringing down battery costs

“With our new ambition, we continue to take the lead in accelerating the natural shift to EVs by creating customer pull through an attractive proposition by driving excitement, enabling adoption and creating a cleaner world,” said Nissan COO Ashwani Gupta.

Following the announcement, Nissan’s shares were trading 3.57% lower at JPY605. Broader markets in Japan were also trading lower because of concerns regarding the Omicron variant of Covid-19. Nikkei 225 was down 0.04% while the TOPIX was down 0.39%.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
