A Nissan electric vehicle and electric truck are the first to be tested in Nevada, the company announced Friday.
The new Nissan Leaf is powered by a lithium ion battery, which was developed for the Tesla Model S, the most successful electric car.
The Leaf has been a benchmark model for Nissan since the company’s founding in 1986, and the electric car is expected to go on display at the automaker’s showroom in Las Vegas later this month.
Nissan is also developing the electric bus, which is designed to go 100 miles on a single charge and has a range of up to 300 miles on one charge.
The company says it is working on a range extender that can extend the range of a vehicle to about 300 miles, and it is planning to debut the new electric van later this spring.
Nissan said the new Leaf is also a “game-changer” for the automotive industry, and that it will become the most affordable electric vehicle on the road.
The company has been trying to make electric vehicles available to the masses for some time.
Nissan introduced its Leaf plug-in hybrid vehicle, the Leaf LEAF, in 2011.
In the past, the electric vehicle has struggled to gain acceptance, but Nissan has made progress since.
After launching its electric SUV last year, Nissan sold 1.2 million of the vehicles worldwide in its first year of sales.
The car was able to hit a market share of around 30% in the U.S., where it sold around 9 million.
While Nissan’s efforts have been impressive, the automarch has been struggling to bring its electric vehicles to market, according to Bloomberg News.
According to the report, Nissan’s electric vehicle sales are only expected to grow by between 1% and 2% this year, according the company.
