published: 2016-05-16 16:24 | category: News

Nissan introduced a new home energy storage product made from recycled batteries sourced from the company’s electric vehicle (EV) offerings, according to recent reports. The move means that Nissan has now joined Tesla and Daimler (Mercedes) in the offering of home energy storage systems in addition to EVs.

The new xStorage energy storage system — which features 12 LEAF battery modules — was revealed by Nissan at a recent event in East London. It’s reportedly being produced in partnership with the power management firm Eaton.

“Our system will be provided to end users completely ready to use, with all required elements including cabling and installation by a certified professional, at a starting price of 4,000 euros for 4.2 kilowatt-hours (kWh) nominal,” commented Eaton Electical EMEA’s Vice President of Marketing Cyrille Brisson. “Our policy is to avoid hidden extra costs and achieve a lower total cost of ownership than other major offers already announced.”
Nissan is reportedly expecting to sell 100,000 of the systems within the next 5 years.
