Nissan shows advanced EV concept in Paris

(September 28, 2012) PARIS — Making its European debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the Nissan PIVO 3 concept showcases a range of new and exciting technologies that provide a vision of what the future holds for urban mobility.

The innovative zero emissions concept builds on the strengths of its predecessors, and adds more real-world features, such as Automated Valet Parking (AVP) and Robotic Agent Interface (RAI) — a system that integrates the vehicle's key technologies into one interface.

PIVO 3 also has the facility to feed stored power back to the local electricity grid. This technology, when employed on a larger scale with other EVs, has the potential to balance electric power demand and supply.
