Both automakers are facing challenges related to the higher costs associated with developing EVs compared to traditional gasoline-powered vehicles, resulting in elevated prices for all-electric cars.


Despite their efforts to strengthen their EV businesses, Nissan and Honda continue to face stiff competition from global rivals such as Tesla Inc. and BYD Co., which currently dominate the global EV market.
