Nissan to produce a hybrid without Toyota technology

In the past, CEO of Nissan Carlos Ghosn has indicated their deal to produce hybrids using Toyotas technology won't last too long. And back in April, Nissan dropped a few hints about what their new hybrid technology will be like. Well, Nissan has now come out and promised they are going their own way by 2010. First up will be a hybrid compact using a Lithium-ion battery with its larger capacity and quicker recharging capabilities.

But don't expect Nissan to jump into the hybrid market with both feet, even with their own technology. Nissan's approach has been cautious to the extreme, and that's not going to change with Ghosn in the lead.

In fact, the Nissan Altima Hybrid, when it is released, will only be available in limited numbers in limited states.

It seems that Nissan is interested in the commercial hybrid vehicle market, going so far as to produce the hybrid cabstar, for instance.
