Nissan Chief Executive Carlos Goshn said the company expects to sell a broad range of electric vehicles globally by 2012, beginning with a small number, in the hundreds of vehicles, in the U.S.

Mitsubishi is also testing an electric car, and General Motors and Toyota are working on battery-powered vehicles with small engines for recharging. GM plans to start producing the Chevrolet Volt in 2010, while Toyota expects to offer a similar, so-called “plug-in” hybrid around the same time.

Renault has also promises “a range of electric vehicles” beginning with a sedan for the Israel market, before bringing an EV to America within two years, Wired reports.

Tesla, of course, unveiled an electric sports car in 2006.
