Nissan to Build an Electric Car in China

Nissan, in a joint venture with China's Dongfeng, will build an EV for the Chinese market by 2015. Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn said: "We see a clear need for cars that are affordable, practical, spacious and zero emission. Nissan is clearly the global leader in zero emission mobility, now with more than 10,100 electric Nissan Leaf vehicles already sold worldwide." "We are fully prepared to follow the Chinese government direction to promote the adoption of zero emisssion vehicles. We are ready to produce electric cars locally in China under the Venucia brand."
