Nissan to showcase electric vehicles

Nissan will showcase its full range of electric vehicle capabilities at this year's 22nd International Battery, Hybrid and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exposition.

The event - better known as EVS22 - is the world's largest international symposium dedicated to electric vehicles and technology, and is scheduled from October 23 through 28 at the Pacifico Yokohama.

Highlights at the event include the X-TRAIL FCV 2005, which is powered by fuel cell technology.

At the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan offered the world a preview of the open possibilities through the reveal of the Pivo concept vehicle.  The Pivo utilises Nissan's "drive-by-wire" technology and combines zero emissions with an efficient packaging. 

In addition, Nissan has been working on non-core electric-powered technologies. One such invention is the rear-wheel drive electric four-wheel drive system - the e.4WD system - that eliminates the need for a propeller shaft and delivers significant improvements with its compact and lightweight design.

Nissan has a long history of research and development in electric vehicles that dates back to its first electric car, the Tama EV, built in 1947.  Today, Nissan continues to explore various long-term sustainable technologies including the promotion of electric-powered vehicles, fuel cell vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles.
