The Twizy's near-identical twin is set to join the EV family! Renault's alliance partner, Nissan, has unveiled their very own take on the all-electric two-seater for its latest concept.
Called the New Mobility CONCEPT, the newcomer looks identical to its French brother and is powered by the same all-electric set-up too. That means the 20bhp electric motor is carried over, along with a range of 60 miles and a top speed of 47mph.
Most interesting is Nissan's thinking on what the New Mobility CONCEPT's role will be. Among the ideas are using EVs as a link between existing public transportation, improving mobility at tourist hot-spots and ‘2-mode EV car sharing’, where the vehicle is used as a private commuter vehicle in the mornings and evenings, and as a corporate car during business hours.
For the moment, Nissan aren't looking at putting the New Mobility CONCEPT into production, deciding to focus on the launch of its LEAF electric vehicle early next year. Meanwhile, the Twizy will be on UK roads early in 2012, costing around £5,000. For more details click here.
