Nissan Terra, Peugeot Onyx Ready for Paris Show...Ford Opts for Lithium...
National Plug In Day

Nissan announced the debut of its Terra Fuel Cell vehicle for the upcoming Paris Motor Show, where the Peugeot Onyx hybrid will also be on display. Ford will begin using Lithium, instead of rare earth elements, in its hybrid and electric cars. National Plug In Day will be celebrated in more than 30 U.S. cities on Sept. 23.
