Nis­san ea­ger to turn it on

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Onroad -

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.’’
