Nissan Partners With NEC For Battery Factory, Claims Of EV by 2010 Maybe Not BS?

Illustration for article titled Nissan Partners With NEC For Battery Factory, Claims Of EV by 2010 Maybe Not BS?

Nissan has announced a strategic partnership with tech giant NEC for a lithium ion battery factory in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The facility will operate under a new company dubbed Automotive Energy Supply and will be capable of putting out 16,000 batteries by next year, and 65,000 at full rate by 2011. With this $115 million announcement, Nissan's claims of putting EVs on the road by 2010 don't seem so far fetched. If Carlos the vanquisher says it will be, it will be. [Wired]
