TOKYO -- Nissan Motor will switch all models sold in China to either electric or hybrid vehicles, Nikkei has learned, as the Japanese carmaker tries to keep pace with Beijing's push of automobiles with smaller carbon footprints. 

The move follows an announcement this week that Beijing plans to make all new vehicles sold in 2035 "eco-friendly." Nissan will introduce nine models in China by 2025 that will either be fully electric or hybrid.
