Pivo 2

Pivo....................................(3486.jpg)

Talk about a cute concept car. The Nissan Pivo 2 almost makes Wall-E look dull – almost… This environmentally-friendly electric urban commuter vehicle has a built-in robotic interface and rotates 360 degrees on its axis. By getting rid of traditional mechanical linkages like shafts and hydraulic cylinders and using drive by wire electrical technology instead, it's infinitely more flexible than most cars we're used to.

In addition to looking adorable and fitting into small spaces, it also does what so many electric cars seem incapable of doing – sits three. If this isn't the car of the future, I'll be so disappointed. RM

    It’s ugly AND it doesn’t look very safe, and it would never be very popular here in america, 😉 that car could MAYBE sit one fat person.

    Rudebwoy, the WHOLE CAR rotates 360 degrees! LOL Just park and rotate sideways. Or backwards, kind of like a hatch you need to lift in the back. Then there is plenty of room. 🙂

    I love concept cars, I wish more would actually go into production. One thing I did notice from this one is that parking would be tough because of the amount of space you’d need to get out from the front opening up that wide. One fix could be a swivel chair, maybe to the right and/or left, to get out from a door.

    I absolutely love this concept! It seems more versatile and just plain genius if you ask me, more so than the Smart car. I am curious about the rest of the specs though! I really hope we can see more vehicles like this in the future.

    I want this car! Come on! Between this and the Smart, this wins HANDS DOWN! LOL! How easy would this be to parallel park? 😀

Any comments?
