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.
