Nissan will work with Sumitomo to recycle batteries from Nissan brand electric cars. They say this will allow them to lower the price on their plug-ins. A new venture will be formed to recycle the lithium-ion batteries. In the hybrid and electric car field Nissan is hustling to catch up with competitors Honda and Toyota. Nissan's plug-in Fuga will not hit the streets until next year.PLUG-IN PRIUS Toyota, meanwhile, will put some plug-in Prius cars on the road. Toyota will release 500 plug-in versions of Prius by January 1. It's a test model using lithium-ion batteries instead of the nickel-metal hydride used in the current Prius. These first Prius plug-ins may only have a range of 15 miles on just electricity. FORD GOES ELECTRIC Ford Motor says it expects to have electric or hybrid cars become as much as 25% of their new cars by the year 2020. To show they're serious, they've appointed a new chief of global electrification!
