Description

In a demonstration of their passion for innovation, #nissan engineers have created a prototype #nissan #leaf with a 48 kWh battery – in their spare time. Following the manufacturer’s principles of on-going research and development of electric vehicles, the 48 kWh prototype carries a battery twice the size of the original #nissan #leaf production model, with a 75 percent increase in driving range in everyday conditions. It was created by a group of engineers at Nissan’s Technical Centre in Barcelona (NTCE-S), whose passion and commitment to their work has given rise to the #nissan Innovation team. The team of volunteers take on a range of exciting endeavours, pushing the boundaries of what is possible with electric vehicle technology. The prototype, codenamed “Cocoon” in reference to the American sci-fi film of the same name, was built to compete in the Spanish motorsport event, ECOseries - a new initiative which rewards “efficiency and fuel economy rather than outright speed.” Sub to AutoVideoBroadcast here! http://bit.ly/1ikP6w1 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- WEBSITE http://autovideobroadcast.com/ Like us on FB http://www.facebook.com/autovideobroadcast Send us video ideas on http://twitter.com/AV_Broadcast
