Nissan Motors, Tokyo, said yesterday that it will sell its first gasoline/electric hybrid car online.
The company will begin taking orders for its Tino Hybrid April 14 on the Internet in Japan.
The Tino is powered by a 1.8-liter gasoline engine and two electric motors. It has double the mileage efficiency of comparable gas only powered cars and cuts emissions in half.
Nissan said it hopes to sell 100 units of the car initially and will increase production of the car according to demand.
