Nissan’s Electrifying Vision: All-Solid-State Battery-Powered GT-R Expected by 2028

The Iconic GT-R Awaits a Transformation with Game-Changing Battery Tech

Among the notable vehicles in Nissan’s electrification strategy is the venerable GT-R. This performance legend, in its current R35 generation since late 2007, has been a symbol of automotive excellence. In a recent interview with Top Gear magazine, Nissan’s global product boss, Ivan Espinosa, shed light on the challenges of supercars, particularly the burden of weight. Current batteries, being on the heavier side, pose a significant obstacle to electrifying supercars. Nissan’s approach is clear: they’re waiting for ASSBs to fully electrify the GT-R, and the reason is simple. Doubling the energy density allows engineers to incorporate a smaller battery, mitigating the weight penalty while preserving the GT-R’s classic 2+2 seating arrangement.
