This is the all-new Nissan Pivo. Its name comes from the 360-degree rotating cabin atop the platform-on-wheels. To us, it looks more like a toy car than a real, live automobile; but it sure is nifty. It runs on pure electricity – from a lithium-ion battery. It uses drive-by-wire the whole way through, so no mechanical brake fluid or steering cables. Here’s a description from Wikipedia:
The Pivo really doesn’t even have an engine. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery. The battery has a super motor that creates one of the lowest emissions yet in any vehicle. The design of the vehicle is very futuristic because of many features the Pivo has shown. The Pivo’s cabin can revolve completely around (360 degrees) and is very easy to maneuver because of it. The Pivo sports very high-tech gadgets, as well. It features Nissan’s Around View Monitor which reduces blind spots by displaying the outside surroundings on screens mounted on the inside of the car’s A-pillars.
