Nissan is partnering with San Diego Gas & Electric to sell its new all-electric car here next year.

The automaker will show off a prototype of the car to people who manage fleets for large companies, universities and municipalities at the Broadway Pier in downtown San Diego today, though the company insists the way it drives is more important than the way it looks.

“This is not a test and demonstration, but a true market introduction,” said Mark Perry, Nissan's director of product planning and strategy.
