Nissan Designing New Urban Personal Electric Transporter

Nissan has been working on a new concept vehicle that is designed to address growing congestion in European cities. Actually, this is a growing problem in large cities all around the world, and this type of urban personal electric transporter (UPET) could possibly be a key solution to easing congestion and lowering emissions in these places.

Nissan is not the first to explore this problem. Its alliance partner Renault has been toying with the similarly targeted Twizy for some time now. But Nissan think’s it can pick up where the Twizy leaves off. The Renault Twizy is marketed mainly as an alternative to scooters, while Nissan’s new car will combine the compactness and agility of a motorcycle with weather protection and a protective shell more akin to a conventional car.

Nissan’s head of product strategy and planning, Etienne Henry, says: “The Twizy is also trying to combine these, but we think there are optimizations possible with this kind of vehicle.” Henry declined to say when the car might actually be added to Nissan’s lineup.
