Nissan Concept Car - Pivo 2

Japan’s auto giant Nissan unveils the new robotic vehicle “Pivo 2,” equipped with in-wheel electric motors to drive all wheels independently and to pivot its cabin, at the company’s headquarters in Tokyo.

The Pivo 2 three-seater electric car has wheels that can turn 90 degrees for easy parallel parking.

Like its predecessor, which was unveiled two years ago, the new Pivo has a cabin able to revolve 360 degrees, eliminating the need to reverse.

A round-eyed robot head sitting on the dashboard has cameras that can tell when a driver is getting sleepy.

“You look tired. There’s a coffee shop 500 metres ahead on the left,” it told a driver with drooping eyelids during a recent demonstration.

It can also nod or shake its head, helping to improve the mood of irate or glum drivers.

The car has “by-wire” technologies that use electric signals in the steering and braking.

Unlike the first Pivo, it has no axles. Instead it has four separate electric motors, allowing the wheels to turn further than a conventional car.

The Pivo 2 will be exhibited at the Tokyo Motor Show near the capital from October 27.Nissan Concept Car - Pivo 2 » image 5
