70 YEARS OF EV
Exactly 70 years after the debut of its first electric vehicle (EV), Nissan’s most advanced EV ever, the Nissan BladeGlider sports car, took centre stage at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK. Nissan’s EV success story began in 1947 with the launch of the Tama. This pioneering four-seat EV was available as a passenger car and a van and offered customers a range of 65 kilometres on a full charge. It was initially developed by the Tokyo Electro Automobile Co. Ltd, which later became part of Nissan. Since the debut of the Tama in 1947, Nissan has established a rich heritage in zeroemission technology as the world leader in EVs. It pioneered the EV revolution with the launch of world’s first massmarket 100% electric passenger car, the Nissan LEAF.
