An automaker has a new all-electric car. Nissan says its Leaf hatchback is a clean car using no gas and zero emissions.

The Leaf has a top speed of 90 miles per hour.

Nissan has not announced a sticker price but says it will be competitive.

The automaker says it's also considering leasing the high-priced lithium-ion batteries that power the car.

Nissan will begin selling the Leaf in the United States late next year.
