Official: Nissan unveils New Mobility Concept

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 1, 2010

Nissan revealed today its so-called “New Mobility Concept” or its own version of the Renault Twizy Concept, recently unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The new car is Nissan’s proposal for a sustainable, efficient and convenient mode of transportation focusing on the increase of elderly and single households.

The concept is described by four keywords: Innovative – New two-seater compact mobility for various needs and occasions; Easy – Size which enables anyone to drive and park easily; Safe – Manoeuvrability equivalent to motorbikes with greater safety; Clean – No emissions while driving.

As expected, the ultra-compact 100% electric vehicle with no emissions is user friendly, and can be utilized in various situations in everyday life. For those who don’t know, Nissan aims to become a leader in zero-emission mobility with Alliance partner Renault and already launched the LEAF or the so-called “first affordable electric car on the market. ”

Nissan had expressed its desire and commitment to introducing vehicles with zero carbon emission, and had stayed true to its word with the launch of the Nissan LEAF electric vehicle. The vehicle first appeared in the United States in December 2010, and it was shipped to European customers beginning in early 2011.

Partnering with Nissan in this eco-friendly initiative to bring zero-emission vehicles to the market is racing car maker Renault. Aside from its partnership with Renault, Nissan also engaged in relationships with several nations, cities, and government and private organizations to promote sustainable zero-emission mobility.

Nissan is also committed to developing means for reusing old lithium-ion batteries employed in EVs like the LEAF as well as promoting recycling in manufacturing processes.

Finally, Nissan came up with the Nissan New Mobility CONCEPT, a proposed concept car that is intended for the elderly people as well as for single households. Nissan aims to come up with sustainability, efficiency and convenience for such people with the CONCEPT proposal.

  • 'seamless mobility service', a highly efficient and convenient public transportation service linking public transportation and EVs supported by IT,
  • '2-mode EV car sharing', where the vehicle is used as a private commuter vehicle in the mornings and evenings, and as a corporate car during business hours, and,
  • contributing to the revitalization of communities with improved mobility in both urban and tourist locations.

Aiming to be a global leader in zero-emission mobility with Alliance partner Renault, Nissan will launch Nissan LEAF, the first 100% electric, mass-marketed, zero-emission car in December 2010 in Japan and the United States, and in early 2011 in Europe.
