TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY: Nissan’s All-Electric Nuvu Vehicle
Posted By Jorge Chapa On October 7, 2008 @ 2:30 pm In Green Transportation,Innovation | 2 Comments
This year’s Paris Motor Show  has seen many major manufacturers making strident efforts towards smaller, more fuel efficient, and more environmentally sustainable vehicles. The Nissan Nuvu  is just such a car, representing the type of vehicle that we will be driving within the next decade: one that is city-smart, compact  and all-electric .
The Nissan Nuvu  seats three within a compact three-meter long chassis. Its roof is lined with around a dozen solar panels , which feed the car’s battery via a pillar running through the interior. It is meant to be agile and roomy, and it features a nice futuristic instrument panel. The Nuvu ‘s powertrain runs on two lithium-ion batteries, and its electric motors can push the car to a maximum speed of 75 miles per hour , which will take you for 80 miles on a charge.
While the Nuvu is currently a concept, Nissan plans to incorporate the technologies debuted this car in a soon-to-be revealed electric vehicle slated for production in 2010.
