Here' the bottom line: Nissan
wants to be the world leader in electric cars. This does not include hybrids, but full-blown electric vehicles that require absolutely no gasoline. Nissan and its partner Renault
have decided they're tired of utilizing other automaker's hybrid technology. Say what? Yes, the Nissan Altima hybrid uses borrowed technology from Toyota
. It's not enough to rely on other's technology if you expect to get anywhere in the developing green auto technology market.
