October's Paris Motor Show will be the stage for Nissan to unveil their new Nuvu concept, an electric 2+1 micro-car that would compete with the Toyota iQ if the automaker rolls it out. At less than ten feet long, the Nuvu will be about the same size as a smart fortwo, but powered solely by a battery. There are two main seats and an extra seat for a third passenger. According to Nissan, there is "sufficient space for a typical supermarket or shopping expedition". Demonstrating Nissan's commitment to EV technology, and their environmentally-conscience green side, the Nuvu's all-glass roof is covered with solar panels placed in the pattern of leaves on a tree. The "trunk" of the tree is the conduit feeding the power to the battery. Nissan hasn't released pictures of their newest EV, but we promise full details and a gallery when we see it in person next month.

        +1 Nissan can win with an edgier style. It would definitly steal away from the somewhat blander iQ, and Smart.

        If that's the car and it's priced competitively with the SF2, then it will be in my driveway.

      small size + functionality + good looks = success

      hope they pull it off, the iq looks kind of quirky.

      Sounds great!
      Welcome to the growing class of cool micro cars!

      I already used the smart fortwo that was great and I'm expecting more from this new model.
