TOKYO -- Nissan Motor plans to raise production capacity in China by around 30% and send in vehicle development teams from Japan, keeping focused on a growth market even as the automaker retreats from the pursuit of scale under former boss Carlos Ghosn.

The Japanese automaker wants all of the new cars it releases in China to be electrics, in line with Beijing's support for low-emission vehicles.
