OK, as we just posted, we know that Nissan
is getting involved in large EV
projects in Europe, Israel and Japan. Minoru Shinohara (pictured above with the Pivo 2 concept), senior vice president of the technology development department at Nissan said during the CEATEC Exhibition
in Japan that Nissan is exploring wireless recharging
. For some people (that'd be me!), the hassle of plugging in their car might be a real challenge or just an easy thing to forget. Seeking Alpha
gives hints that Nissan may be looking to ultracapacitors from the APowerCap
company in Ukraine. Besides wireless charging, Shinohara said Nissan will one day offer a complete range of EV options. "We are aiming for EV leadership, which means we need to cover the market," he said. "Which means we need to prepare several vehicles."
