Nissan Unveils New Ultra-Compact Electric Vehicle Concept
Posted By Ariel Schwartz On November 1, 2010 @ 4:30 pm In Green Transportation | 2 Comments
Forget the upcoming Leaf EV  — Nissan has other snazzy electric vehicles waiting in the concept phase. The latest is the New Mobility Concept,  a golf cart-like EV that is, according to Nissan, easy, innovative, safe, and clean.
Designed to meet the needs of single households and the elderly, the ultra-compact vehicle is designed for short distance driving. Nissan imagines that the car could be “used as a private commuter vehicle in the mornings and evenings, and as a corporate car during business hours,” and that it could one day be part of a public transportation service linking public transportation and electric vehicles .
The vehicle was unveiled this week in Japan, although there is no word on whether the concept vehicle will ever go into production. It is, however, a positive sign that Nissan is actively working on mass-market EVs  for a variety of customers. Stay tuned.
