Nissan has revealed the Townpod EV at the Paris Motorshow, which looks very much like an electric Cube. The Townpod is said to cater to all manner of situations, be it the nuclear family off for a long weekend or the weekly visit to the supermarket.
Utilizing the same technology found in the Nissan Leaf, the car’s charging point is found on its nose. The showcar in Paris is covered in Stratosphere White paint, with electric blue hints visible behind the door handles, number plates, spokes of the alloy wheels and within the headlamp pods. The van will feature suicide doors as well.
Inside functions such as climate control and media playback are accessed with two centrally digital screens. The top screen provides information such as car speed, battery status, remaining range and navigation system, while the bottom touch screen provides controls for nav systems, audio system and allows users to perform system checks.
Other interesting features include a thing called the “Puck”, which is a rubber ball, with a wide groove cut into it. It is said to be able to accommodate drink holders and mobile phones. Easing loading issues, the Van’s boot features an interesting design, with doors hinged to either side of the back. The addition of a hatch-like sun roof, directly above the cargo area, allows Nissan Townpod to carry taller objects.
A picture gallery is available after the jump.
