Nissan Give Their Take On The Future Of Mobility [w/Video]

Nissan have teamed up with world-renowned architects Foster + Partners in order to give us a glimpse of what the future of mobility might look like.

Right off the bat, one of the main ideas behind this concept is that the car itself could in a way be the fuel station of the future. In order to best understand how that makes sense, you need to watch the video and see how cars would be able to interact with their environment.

In short, Nissan is envisioning a world where vehicle-to-grid, battery storage, wireless charging, autonomous drive technology and over-the-air connectivity would mix together, revolutionizing how energy is used and distributed across major cities.

“Technology holds many of the answers for the challenges we face in our cities today. However, the true power comes when those technologies are integrated with each other and the world around us,” said Paul Wilcox, chairman of Nissan Europe.

“We’ve been at the forefront of zero emission technology since 2010, but our vision does not stop there – we believe that the future of transportation is reliant on both infrastructure and the environment. We’re looking for real, workable solutions that go beyond the product.”

Over half of the world’s population lives in cities, and according to a study, seven out of every 10 people will live in urban areas by the year 2050 – making it imperative for us to have an existing electric infrastructure in place.

Currently, Nissan is testing a new vehicle-to-grid system in Europe, which should allow drivers to operate as individual “energy hubs” able to store, use and return clean energy back to the grid.
