Nissan Uses Electric Cars To Aid Disaster Relief In Pilot Program

By

Along with releasing information on the new Nissan LEAF, the car manufacturer is pushing out a series of pilot projects to showcase just how useful the electric vehicle battery is. Under the umbrella of the new Nissan Electric Ecosystem, the company plans to provide battery solutions to developing countries, aid in high-risk disaster areas, and expand outreach to communities in Europe.

The first project deals with building a small grid system for developing countries. We’ve seen numerous solar-powered systems and vehicles being released at affordable rates for those in rural areas that struggle to get any electricity, clean water, and food for their family. Adding local battery supply would limit these travel times and communities would be able to thrive with better shops and schools.
