ET3A solar-panel powered car with a battery pack and a fuel cell could be coming to market within five years.
The Nissan Leaf is a electric car with solar panels.
It has been hailed as a vehicle that is “green” in that it doesn’t use fossil fuels, uses zero emissions and can be driven on a variety of roads.
However, Nissan is not the only one aiming for the green-car market.
The world’s biggest auto manufacturer, Volkswagen, is currently designing an electric car.
The Volkswagen Leaf, which will be built at a plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is powered by a lithium-ion battery that is 100 percent renewable, according to a report in The New York Times.
Volkswagen is also using renewable energy to help generate electricity, and has committed to 100 percent of its fuel cell electricity by 2026.
The car, which is slated to cost about $100,000 when it is finished, will have a range of about 200 miles and will have an EPA-certified range of more than 300 miles.
The Nissan Leaf has been in production since 2009.
The automaker’s electric vehicles are on track to be on the market by the middle of 2020.
The EPA is expected to finalize regulations for electric vehicles in 2021.
The news comes after Nissan said it plans to start selling its electric vehicle by the end of 2020, according the Wall Street Journal.
The plant where Nissan will build its electric cars is in the Chattanooga, Georgia area, near Atlanta.
Nissan also plans to sell its vehicles in China.
In addition to its electric vehicles, Nissan has also developed electric trucks.
Its Xterra is an electric truck that has a range that can travel between 50 and 110 miles on a single charge.
