Highlights of the Nissan Exhibit at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show
YOKOHAMA, JAPAN (November 8, 2011) - Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., will present a selection of new production vehicles, prototypes and three concept cars at the upcoming 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.
Highlights of the show include:
An overview of the concept cars and technologies to be exhibited are as follows:
PIVO 3 - The smart urban commuter EV of the near future
ESFLOW - Dynamic driving in a zero emission future
TOWNPOD - Cross-genre EV for the free-thinking enterpreneur
NV350 - Next-generation light commercial van delivers capacity, convenience and style
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY - Toward Zero Emission Mobility
Nissan's EV technology offers exciting new benefits exemplified by the Smart House of the Future and EV-based Smart Community, which will be introduced using motion displays.
Nissan will display its Smart House "NSH-2012", an implementation of the "LEAF to Home" (V2H*) electric supply system, which uses power stored in Nissan LEAF's batteries. The Smart House combines solar panels, fuel cells and Nissan LEAF's batteries to maintain a steady power supply to the home, independent of weather conditions. Even during a power outage in a disaster, solar power and Nissan LEAF batteries can continue to supply the home with electricity.
* V2H stands for "vehicle to home", that is, supplying electricity to the home from power stored in an electric vehicle's batteries.
A broader application of the "LEAF to Home" electric supply system, Smart Communities integrate renewable energy and a bi-directional electric grid to enable new lifestyles. Motion displays show how EVs make this possible in three contexts: homes, buildings and communities.
A multi-media presentation of PIVO 3 functions, such as Automated Valet Parking, which link to the "smart city" infrastructure of the future and use cloud computing to enable intelligent and convenient next-generation mobility.
PURE DRIVETM - Boosting fuel efficiency with a suite of technologies
PURE DRIVETM is Nissan's initiative to boost environmental performance in conventional-fuel powertrains. Cutaway models and videos will introduce PURE DRIVETM technologies including clean diesel, hybrid, stop/start system and XTRONIC CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission).
Nissan Safety Shield - Towards zero fatalities
Nissan has set an ultimate goal of reducing the number of automobile accident fatalities or serious injuries involving its vehicles to substantially zero. Nissan's Safety Shield concept defines pre- and post-crash conditions to guide the active development of technologies to address safety all around the vehicle. Nissan will introduce nine technologies by the end of 2011 to create a virtual "Safety Shield" for our customers. Video presentations and interactive displays will illustrate these innovations.
Press conference and other highlights of events at the Nissan stand will be broadcast live on the USTREAM web streaming service, along with updates on Twitter @NISSAN_GLOBAL.
