As the electrification of automobiles accelerates, there is a growing movement among automakers to significantly renovate their production lines in order to support the production of EVs = electric vehicles.

Of these, at Nissan Motor's factory in Kaminokawa-cho, Tochigi Prefecture, a part of the production line was renovated so that EVs with significantly different designs from gasoline-powered vehicles could be assembled together.



We are trying to reduce the burden on employees by automating the work by introducing a new robot in the process that was previously done manually by sneaking under the car.



The company has set a goal of making all new models to be introduced into the market electric vehicles in Japan, Europe, the United States, and China in the early 2030s, and will flexibly adjust the production system even if the demand for EVs increases in the future. We are reviewing the process so that it can be arranged.



Hideyuki Sakamoto, Vice President of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., said, "Electric vehicles have many very heavy parts such as motors and batteries, which puts a heavy burden on working employees. We want to reduce mistakes by automating work and make it easier to work. ".

In addition, Mazda also renovated its factory in Hofu City, Yamaguchi Prefecture last month, and it seems that the movement to review the production process will continue to spread in order to respond to the movement toward electrification.
