 MAJOR ROLE FOR AUTO GIANT AT WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL FAIR
 VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's


fourth-largest automaker will play a major role at the Globe 92 international environmental congress and trade show and public fair in Vancouver March 16-22.
 Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. will exhibit a futuristic electric vehicle, while the company's researchers will deliver presentations on a variety of new environmental projects.
 A few days earlier -- as a prelude to Globe 92 -- Nissan's FEV (Future Electric Vehicle) will make its first-ever demonstration runs on public roads, in Stanley Park, early March 12.
 From March 16-19, FEV will be one of the star exhibits at the Globe 92 trade show in B.C. Place Stadium.
 Then, from March 20-22, it will go on public display at the Enviro Expo fair in the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre.
 Three senior Nissan research executives will also participate in panel sessions and lectures at Globe 92:
 -- March 17, Mitsutaka Konno, general manager, Environmental Health and Safety Engineering Department, will participate in a morning panel discussion of "Competitiveness and Corporate Environmental Strategy". His presentation is entitled "Putting Environmental Management into Practice."
 -- March 18, Masato Fukino will deliver a late-afternoon paper on his team's work in development and new technology in Nissan's FEV electric vehicle.
 -- March 19, Atsushi Kato will detail Nissan's newly patented and environmentally benign process for stripping paint from old plastic components, such as vehicle bumpers. The process is viewed as a major breakthrough toward easier recycling of plastic vehicle components.
 NISSAN'S FEV -- IN BRIEF
 Nissan's FEV is a streamlined sports coupe featuring numerous technological breakthroughs:
 -- It can recharge its batteries to a useful level within 6 minutes and can fully recharge in 15 minutes -- compared to lengthy overnight recharging needed by most electric vehicles.
 -- It's capable of reaching highway speeds, and capable of covering up to 160 km on a single charge -- among the best performances by any electric car yet developed.
 -- And it is fully detailed and equipped -- including superlight bodywork, full safety equipment, including dual front air bags, and solar-power roof panels to boost battery charging.
