Carmaker to partner with UTC on fuel cell development.

Published: 04-Mar-2003

OKYO, Japan --Japanese carmaker Nissan Motor will jointly develop a fuel cell with the U.S. group United Technologies Corp., according to a report Tuesday.

Nissan had already announced in December a fuel cell power plant developed by UTC Fuel Cells, a unit of United Technologies, would be used in its X-Trail FCV test vehicle this year.

Nissan said then it had won approval from the Japanese government to test the hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle on public roads in Japan in 2003.

Nissan is already testing other fuel cell vehicles on U.S. roads, using technology from Canada's Ballard Power Systems.
