Tokyo '09: Nissan Announces All-Electric Version of NV200 LCV

| |
As well as confirming plans for a battery-powered Infiniti model that will be introduced in the very near future at his speech today at the Tokyo Motor Show opening, Nissan Motor Co. President and CEO Carlos Ghosn also revealed that Nissan will produce an electric version of the firm's newly introduced NV200 light commercial vehicle.

"This low-cost multi-purpose vehicle would allow ambulance drivers to drive directly into the hospital... or van and taxi drivers to enter urban areas where CO2 emissions are restricted," said Carlos Ghosn on the NV200 EV. "It's a flexible, practical vehicle with zero emissions."

While the Japanese automaker released a teaser sketch of the fully electric NV200, no other information was given out on the vehicle.
