Nissan is already one of the leaders in the electric vehicle field, having unveiled the zero-emission Leaf, which is scheduled to go on sale next month, and now this latest mobility concept. Previewing one possibility for mobility in the future, where vehicle designs will be dictated by ease of use in congested urban environments and ever-stricter emissions standards, the aptly named Nissan New Mobility Concept continues to expand the possibilities realized by electric vehicles.

This particular concept is a sustainable, efficient and convenient mode of transportation focusing on the increase of elderly and single households, as well as the trend of driving short-distances or in smaller groups.

Nissan boasts that its concept is just as maneuverability as a motorbike and is easy to use for just about anyone. Note, however, that It only features two seats and doesn’t have a sealed cabin.

The automaker envisages the vehicle being owned by two parties, one who uses it during the day for business and cooperate events and another who uses it as a private commuter vehicle in the mornings and evenings.

Although Nissan is calling the vehicle a concept, it is actually a rebadged version of the Renault Twizy electric vehicle, which has already been confirmed for sale in Europe early next year with a pricetag around the $10,000 mark.

In addition to the development and production of electric vehicles, Nissan, together with its alliance partner Renault, is taking a comprehensive approach to promote sustainable mobility. This includes forming dozens of zero-emission partnerships worldwide with countries, cities, organizations and other key stakeholders, the deployment of charging infrastructure, second-life use of lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles and the promotion of recycling parts used in vehicle production.
