The Nissan Motor Company and the NEC Corporation are set to invest $115 million to start mass-producing lithium-ion batteries for electric, hybrid and fuel-cell vehicles. According to Nissan officials, the new batteries will be more powerful than nickel-metal hydride batteries commonly used in electric and hybrid cars today, and will be half their size. The joint venture, called Automotive Energy Supply, is planning to open the battery plant by 2009. Available video includes shots of the PIVO2 and Mixim electric cars.
