Future Car: Nissan to unleash Pivo 2 concept at Tokyo
Update: Pivo2 video added.
Nissan has unveiled the second installment for the Pivo vehicle it displayed in Tokyo in the year 2005. The new Pivo 2 runs on compact Lithium ion batteries and is without a reverse gear. Anyways, what is the need of a reverse gear in a vehicle whose cabin is capable of rotating 360 degrees!
Each of the four wheels is powered by Nissan’s in-wheel batteries and each wheel is capable of turning through 90 degrees. With a cabin that can rotate 360degrees and wheels that can turn 90 degrees, Pivo2 can be driven in any conceivable direction on the road.
The concept is a one-seater but you will never be alone in this vehicle; an interactive robotic agent will keep you company on the roads and provide an interface for basic vehicle communications as well as parking assistance.
