Nissan announces hybrids to use Li-Ion batteries
Nissan plans to unveil its new electric car and its original hybrid prototype vehicle in 2010. The two fuel efficient vehicles will be powered by an advanced lithium-ion battery. The new electric cars will use a rear-wheel power train that delivers twice the power as conventional nickel-metal batteries. "Under the NISSAN GT 2012 business plan, the company has committed to zero-emission vehicle leadership, and has announced plans to introduce an all-electric vehicle in 2010 and mass market globally in 2012," Nissan said in a statement.
