Nissan Light Commercial Electric Vehicle

Nissan has released a concept sketch of a new light commercial electric-vehicle based on the NV200 Concept.

“The low-cost multi-purpose vehicle would allow ambulance drivers to drive directly into the hospital or van and taxi drivers to enter urban areas where CO2 emissions are restricted,” Nissan said in a statement. “The van is one of four electric vehicles Nissan has announced for the future.”

At the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan unveiled its production Leaf electric-car, which will be launched in Japan and the U.S. in late 2010. CEO Carlos Ghosn also confirmed that it will release a four-seater Infiniti electric compact car and a production version of the Nissan LandGlider concept.
