Nissan eager to turn it on
THE next connection in Nissan’s electric car plan will be plugged in at the Paris Motor Show at the end of the month. It’s a concept car called the Townpod and points to a city car being spun from development of the battery-powered Leaf.
Nissan has released a single picture of the Townpod’s headlamp, but otherwise is keeping quiet.
But the Japanese maker is still teasing with talk. ‘‘The concept combines eye-catching design with a spacious and practical interior,’’ Nissan says. ‘‘It’s designed to offer zero-emissions mobility to a future generation of home-based, innovative entrepreneurs who are creative and tech-savvy.
‘‘It’s more than just a car and it’s more than just a van — it heralds a new era of flexible, stylish vehicles that will bring electric-vehicle mobility to the masses.’’
