TOKYO -- Nissan Motor plans to end the development of diesel engines, in yet another move by a large automaker to devote management resources to electric vehicles and away from diesel-powered cars, Nikkei has learned.

The decision came after Nissan concluded that further decline in the diesel engine market is inevitable. Authorities in Britain, France, China and other countries are considering restricting sales in the future to meet stricter environmental regulations.
