The Renault-Nissan partnership has announced that it aims to develop batteries that can offer a 400km range on a single charge by 2020.

Achieving this goal will almost double the distance that existing Electric Vehicles can travel. The current range of a Nissan LEAF is 228km.

As range is one of the barriers to purchasing EVs, this will offer a tremendous incentive to drivers who are thinking of buying pure electric vehicles.

Renault-Nissan hopes that this added convenience will boost sales and contribute to sales targets… Nissan plans to:

– Increase the sales share of electric cars to from 1% to 10% by 2025

– Sell 1.5 million EVs by 2016 – although just 200,000 units were sold as of the end of 2014

Nissan’s Kazuo Yajima oversees the joint development of electric and hybrid vehicles. Nikkei Asian Review reports that he is considering battery suppliers alongside Nissan’s joint venture with NEC, “provided there are no problems with costs, performance or availability.”

Increased range will undoubtedly be reassuring to drivers and will combine well with the financial incentives involved with driving EVs.
