Nissan Reveals Intelligent Mobility Plan at Hybrid Vehicle Summit
"Today, we have an initiative called Nissan Intelligent Mobility," the company said, "which focuses on three things: how our vehicles are powered, how they are driven, and how they are integrated into society. We are designing vehicles that will drive you to your destination and park themselves, and researching roads that will charge your Electric Vehicle (EV) as you drive."
Nissan has a history of regularly investing in electric vehicles (EV) for more than seven decades, covering 48 countries. In Europe, the automaker expects EVs to make up 20 percent of its sales by 2020. The company recently introduced Nissan Intelligent Mobility, a vision that helps it determine “how our vehicles should be powered, driven, and integrated into society.”
“We see a future of zero emissions and fatalities through Nissan Intelligent Mobility,” said Yutaka Sanada, Nissan’s regional senior vice president for Asia and Oceania, at the summit. "We want drivers to feel more confident, more connected, anisnd more engaged in their vehicles.”
Nissan’s e-powered vehicles offer more excitement through their EV acceleration and silent engine (Intelligent Power) more confidence on the road through Nissan’s ProPilot technology (Intelligent Driving) and more connectivity through vehicle-to-home and vehicle-to-building charging models (Intelligent Integration)—advancements that Nissan hopes to realize soon.
The company’s first e-powered model is the Nissan Note and the its flagship EV, the Nissan LEAF, has earned the coveted titles of being not only the world’s first mass-produced EV but also the world’s best-selling EV, with more than 270,000 units sold since its launch in 2010.
