Nissan Pivo 2 conceptWed, 10 Oct 2007 00:00:00 -0700
Nissan has released details of a new Pivo 2, an advanced electric concept car that will debut at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show. Building on the popularity of the first Pivo, shown at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show, the latest concept will be powered by compact Lithium-ion batteries and features a unique rotating cabin.
Where the first Pivo, with its fully rotating cabin design, made reversing obsolete, the Pivo 2 takes that easy mobility concept to a new level. Each of the four wheels are powered by Nissan's advanced electric in-wheel 3D motor and can turn through 90 degrees to allow Pivo 2 to drive sideways as well as forward.
Besides the futuristic convenience of the 360 degree turning cabin and pivoting wheels, Pivo 2 also features such gadgetry as a 'robotic agent', which allows users to interact with the vehicle through conversation in Japanese and English. The 'agent' provides a unique interface through which to communicate everything from basic vehicle functions through to the nearest available parking.
