The Future is Electric for Nissan
Pivo 2 Concept Turns Heads and
Itself in Tokyo
Tokyo - Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.,
today unveiled the Pivo 2, an advanced electric concept car that
will debut at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show. Pivo 2 builds on
the popularity of the first Pivo, shown at the 2005 Tokyo Motor
Show. Powered by advanced Compact Lithium-ion Batteries and
featuring a unique rotating cabin - meaning no reverse gear
required - the first Pivo became a cult hit at shows from
Beijing to Geneva.
Reasons to love Pivo 2:
Electric power from Nissan's
advanced Lithium-ion batteries
A robotic agent to share every
with 360 degree turning cabin and 90 degree turning wheels
Pivo 2 takes the idea of an
environmentally friendly electric urban commuter vehicle and
delivers fun, functionality and a unique relationship between
the car and driver. Pivo 2 is powered by advanced Compact
Lithium-ion Batteries and employs 'by-wire' technologies for
braking and steering.
Where the first Pivo, with its fully
rotating cabin design, made reversing obsolete, the Pivo 2 takes that
easy mobility concept to a new level. Each of the four wheels are
powered by Nissan's advanced electric In-wheel 3D Motor and can turn
through 90 degrees to allow Pivo 2 to drive sideways as well as forward.
Thanks to the highly innovative Robotic
Agent, you are never alone in the Pivo 2. With conversations possible in
Japanese and English, the Robotic Agent has been created to work with
Pivo 2 to make every journey less stressful. It provides a unique
interface through which to communicate with Pivo 2 on everything from
basic vehicle functions through to the nearest available parking.
