TOKYO -- Nissan Motor will end development of new versions of all its sedans in Japan as sport utility vehicles make inroads into its home market, Nikkei has learned.

Major suppliers had been informed of the plans as of Friday, according to people familiar with the matter. All four sedan models sold in Japan will be affected by the development, including the long-running Skyline.
