The highlight in the playful Japanese interior was a small robot that integrates the on-board assistance systems "human appearance" should give.
With a bizarre ball called Pivo, Nissan has already caused a stir in Tokyo several times. Now the car is supposed to come onto the market. Unfortunately without a rotating passenger compartment.
NNissan has developed its electric car study Pivo into a small car with production opportunities.
The electrically powered three-seater now has a conventionally box-shaped body with two sliding side doors instead of the unusual glass pulpit of the two previous studies.
Although the passenger compartment can no longer be rotated 180 degrees in the respective direction of travel, the third Pivo variant should also be a prime example of maneuverability.
Small turning circle
With a length of three meters, it should have a turning circle of just over four meters.
This enables U-turns on two-lane roads.
Electric wheel hub motors continue to provide the drive.
The manufacturer mentions the date of a possible market launch of a similar series model "near future".
The two previous versions of the Pivo caused a sensation in Tokyo in 2005 and 2007.
The first generations
The first generation of the future mobile was no longer than a Smart at 2.70 meters, but could accommodate three occupants. They found their place in a large glass ball that could rotate completely around its own axis.
If you parked forwards, you simply swiveled the cabin when pulling out of a parking space and drove forwards back onto the street.
Robot in the dashboard
The second generation refined the turning technology – thanks to the wheels that could be turned 90 degrees, it was now possible to maneuver into tight parking spaces in crab aisles.
The highlight this time was a little robot in the dashboard. The cute round-eyed Android should communicate with the driver instead of the anonymous on-board electronics.
He also observes his driver’s eyes and facial expressions and suggests a break if he is tired or tries to cheer him up if he is in a bad mood.
