Tokyo (ots/PRNewswire) -
- Pivo 2 Concept Turns Heads and Itself in Tokyo
Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., today unveiled the Pivo 2, an advanced
electric concept car that will debut at the upcoming Tokyo Motor
Show. Pivo 2 builds on the popularity of the first Pivo, shown at the
2005 Tokyo Motor Show. Powered by advanced Compact Lithium-ion
Batteries and featuring a unique rotating cabin - meaning no reverse
gear required - the first Pivo became a cult hit at shows from
Beijing to Geneva.

Reasons to love Pivo 2:
- Electric power from Nissan's advanced Lithium-ion batteries
- A robotic agent to share every trip
- 'Revolutionary' technology with 360 degree turning cabin and 90
degree turning wheels
Pivo 2 takes the idea of an environmentally friendly electric
urban commuter vehicle and delivers fun, functionality and a unique
relationship between the car and driver. Pivo 2 is powered by
advanced Compact Lithium-ion Batteries and employs 'by-wire'
technologies for braking and steering.
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.
Thanks to the highly innovative Robotic Agent, you are never alone
in the Pivo 2. With conversations possible in Japanese and English,
the Robotic Agent has been created to work with Pivo 2 to make every
journey less stressful. It provides a unique interface through which
to communicate with Pivo 2 on everything from basic vehicle functions
through to the nearest available parking.
Pivo 2 will be on display at the Nissan Ginza Gallery in Tokyo,
for an exclusive public sneak preview ahead of the Motor Show.
