Nissan will start car-sharing pilot program with two-seat electric vehicles in Yokohama, Japan.
New Mobility Concept
The Nissan version of the Renault Twizy, the New Mobility Concept, is going to be available for rent in the tourist coastal town of Shikano in Tottori prefecture, Japan, as seen in this video.
Nissan is taking the careful approach as it brings out its second electric vehicle. To show off the car's practicality, Nissan gave seven moms in suburban Japan the chance to test drive the New Mobility Concept vehicle to see how it works transporting their kids, going shopping and running errands. The Tokyu Corp. has joined with Nissan and the city of Yokohama for the Yokohama Mobility Project Zero, which was designed to increase low-carbon transportation locally.
Nissan's Renault Twizy-based New Mobility Concept – an urban electric vehicle revealed back in November of 2010 – is just about ready to roam the roads in Japan.
