Nissan has revealed its own concept version of the Renault Twizy two-seater electric city car.
Dubbed Nissan New Mobility Concept and expected to use the same 20bhp electric motor and lithium ion battery pack as the Twizy, it has been designed by Nissan to evaluate new ways in which electric vehicles can be used.
These include improving mobility at tourist attractions and acting as a link between existing public transport networks, as well as ‘two-mode EV car sharing’, which would see the car used by urban commuters in the morning and evening and as a corporate car during business hours.
Nissan wouldn’t be drawn on its full-scale production chances, however, describing it as “another electric concept we are looking at”.
The Twizy will reach UK showrooms next year, costing from around £6000. Nissan’s first production electric call will be the Leaf, which also go on sale in the UK next year.Read the full story on the new Renault Twizy
