Nissan’s five-year plan includes an ambitious electrification strategy with the company ready to pump in a lofty USD 17.6 billion to ramp up its electric vehicle production. As part of its electrification blueprint, Nissan has revealed four EV concepts: a small pickup truck called Surf-Out; a boxy crossover called Hang-Out; a compact SUV called Chill-Out; and a convertible sportscar called Max-Out.

While official details aren’t out yet, the Chill-Out concept compact SUV seems to be the model closest to production. A smaller version of the $47,000 Ariya crossover, it’ll be based on Nissan’s CMF-EV platform and will also be priced lower.



The convertible Nissan Max-Out has a low stance and the company says the sportscar will get dynamic cornering and steering response with limited body roll to optimize driver and passenger comfort.

Imagined to work as a mobile living space, the Nissan Hang-Out crossover will get a lounge-like interior with comfortable seating. It is said to have a flat floor that extends across the length of the vehicle, providing ample space for passengers to do what the model name suggests.



The Nissan Surf-Out is a two-door, off-road-biased pickup truck with a minimalist interior and a unique rear lighting scheme. It will have strong off-road capabilities and is expected to come with a range of battery capacities.

All Nissan EV Concepts revealed get the carmaker’s e-4ORCE all-wheel-drive setup and ProPilot driver assistance technologies.

The Japanese carmaker aims to roll out 23 new electrified models by 2030, including 15 fully electric models. Nissan is also working on developing its all-solid-state batteries (ASSB) by fiscal year 2028, with a pilot plant to be set up in Yokohama by 2024. With the introduction ASSB, which requires a shorter charging time, the carmaker will be able to make its EVs more efficient and accessible.
