Nissan has said it has paused development plans for two battery-powered sedans.

It said it would expand its EV line-up to five vehicles in the US.

As global EV demand has waned in recent months, automakers have reassessed their plans for electrification, focusing on hybrid and ICE models.

Stellantis, for example, said it was keeping an agile approach when quizzed by investors earlier this year on whether it would revisit ICE models if consumer demand assumptions changed [EV sales forecasts reduced].

In April, Ford said it was “retiming” the launch of upcoming electric vehicles at its Oakville, Ontario, Canada assembly plant.

In a statement provided to Reuters, Nissan said: “We are adjusting the timeline for the introduction of these five new models to ensure we bring the vehicles to the market at the right time.”

It said it expects its electric SUVs to be rolled out faster than its electric sedans.

The firm added that its Canton, Mississippi factory would support manufacturing of its next-generation vehicles.
