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

Nissan is already contemplating a future Nismo version of the electric GT-R, designed to be even more performance-oriented. To achieve this, they plan to use a smaller battery, further reducing weight. The standard model, on the other hand, will likely incorporate a larger battery for an extended range. By offering a track-oriented variant and a long-range model, Nissan aims to cater to a wider range of enthusiasts.

Espinosa emphasizes that the electric GT-R should remain relatively affordable, resisting the temptation to enter the realm of supercar pricing. This approach is in line with Nissan’s long-standing commitment to making the GT-R accessible to performance enthusiasts. It’s worth noting that the GT-R R35 has seen a significant price increase over the years. While it initially entered the U.S. market in 2009 at a price of $69,850, the 2024 model year now starts at $120,990. Opt for the Nismo variant, and you’ll be paying at least $220,990.

The Road Ahead

With All-Solid-State Batteries still approximately four years away from becoming a reality, the fate of the GT-R R35 remains uncertain. However, it’s essential to consider that this aging supercar has already been discontinued in Europe due to noise regulations and in Australia due to safety standards it cannot meet.
