                      News Release

                      December 7, 1998

                      Nissan, Hitachi, and Unisia JECS Agree to Start Feasibility Studies To Strengthen Joint Development Structure for ITS Driveway Control Technologies

                      - Hitachi Considers Capital Participation in Unisia JECS -

                      Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., Hitachi Ltd., and Unisia JECS Corporation announced today 
                      that they have agreed to start feasibility studies to strengthen their joint development 
                      structure for developing cutting-edge driveway control technologies for ITS (Intelligent 
                      Transport Systems).
                      
                      In order to promote the development work smoothly and efficiently, Hitachi intends to 
                      consider capital participation in Unisia JECS with a view to taking the No. 2 equity 
                      position after Nissan.  Along with this, the company will consider sending its 
                      executives to the Unisia JECS board.
                      
                      The three companies have jointly worked on developing powertrain control systems 
                      since 1994.  They have decided to deepen their collaboration in anticipation of the 
                      actual operation of ITS, which includes automated driving, in the 21st century.  Their 
                      joint initiative is based on their shared understanding that it is essential to develop 
                      integrated vehicle control systems which combine powertrain, braking and steering 
                      control systems.
                      
                      If the feasibility studies prove the business to be viable, the three companies will go 
                      ahead with the following joint development work.
                      
                      <Powertrain-related Area>
                      -Next-generation fuel injection system
                      -HEV (Hybrid-electric vehicles)
                      -EV (Electric vehicles), etc.
                      <Brake-related Area>
                      - Electrically controlled brake-by-wire system 
                      <Steering-related Area>
                      - Directly-operated electrically controlled power steering system
                      <Integrated Vehicle Control System>
                      - Integrated overall vehicle control system combining the three functions of 
                        powertrain, braking and steering
