Nissan will build new battery recycling factories in Europe, U.S. by 2025, report says


TOKYO — Nissan plans to build new battery recycling factories in Europe and the United States by the end of fiscal 2025, the daily Nikkei reported on Thursday.

Nissan hopes that recycling batteries and re-using them in electric vehicles will help lower production costs as the price of rare metals rise, Nikkei said.

The factories would be the company’s first battery recycling facility built outside of Japan, the report added, without specifying the country in Europe where the factory would be built.

Nissan did not immediately respond to a Reuters’ request for comment.

Last month, the company announced its electrification push, committing to spending 2 trillion yen ($17.53 billion) over five years to increase vehicle electrification to catch up with rivals in one of the fastest growing segments for automakers.

The company said they plan to launch 23 electrified vehicles, including 15 EVs, by 2030.
