TOKYO -- Nissan Motor will sell electric-drive versions of all new and redesigned models to hit the Japanese market starting in fiscal 2020 as it shifts further away from gasoline power under tighter emissions rules, Nikkei has learned.

The automaker will roll out an electric sport utility vehicle as early as the second half of 2020 and an electric version of its mainstay Dayz minicar in 2021.
