Nissan Nuvu Showcased in Shanghai
Back to the Nuvu, Nissan plans to use the 2+1 seater as the base platform for the development of future city cars. Unlikely to see production "as is", the electric concept, which incorporates all organic, natural and recycled materials in its interior design is, according to its manufacturer, "an ideal mobility solution for the urban environment".
Nuvu has been developed on an unique platform, the concept is a "test bed for much of the technology that will be used in Nissan's production EV" (this remains a secret for the time being). Other specifications, like the amount of power or torque of the car, are also being kept a secret.
Still, what is known is the vehicle's range -125 km- and its top speed -120 km/hour (74.5 mph).
The Japanese manufacturer plans on introducing an all-electric vehicle in the Chinese market by 2011. Whether the EV will be the successor of the Nuvu or that of the Nissan EV remains to be seen.
