Check out the great article and also some really cool video too.
Thanks to Planet Green I was able to test drive the Nissan E cube electric car. Nissan has been promoting their electric car technologies across the country. I was able to check out the car at Bear Mountain State Park in New York.
The design of the E cube (which means nothing since they don’t even have a prototype) reminded me of the AC Propulsion Ebox electric car that I talked about in Build Your Own Electric Vehicle. Yet, when I drove the car it reminded me of when I rented a Nissan once so that was pretty cool.
According to the Nissan spokesman I interviewed, Nissan electric cars will be on the roads late next year and will be mass marketed to consumers globally in 2012.
The Renault-Nissan Alliance is working with communities, utility companies and all levels of government to help make zero emissions a reality around the world.
In the United States, Nissan has forged partnerships to bring electric cars to Tennessee, Oregon, Sonoma County, the Tucson area, San Diego and more to come. Hey bring them to New York; I want one!!
Globally, the Renault-Nissan Alliance has even announced strategic partnerships to promote electric cars in Israel, Denmark, Monaco, Japan, Portugal, France, and the U.K. (Source: Nissan Motor Corporation).
