Futuristic Environmentally-sound Nissan PIVO (19/05/2008)

 

RARE UK PUBLIC APPEARANCE OF THE 360º-ROTATING, FUTURISTIC, NISSAN PIVO - THE ‘CAR WITH NO REVERSE’

The futuristic Nissan Pivo will be on display in the new exhibition The Science of Survival at the Science Museum from Saturday 24 May to Sunday 1 June 2008.

Nissan Pivo is a concept car, powered by a lithium-ion battery, which generates no emissions compared to normal road-going vehicles. The car’s cabin rotates 360º, removing the need for a reverse gear and making parking simple. Pivo’s design incorporates large doors, windscreens and windows and reduces driver blind spots by displaying the exterior surroundings on screens inside the vehicle. This is a rare opportunity for the UK public to see the Pivo in action.

The Science of Survival is a new, hands-on, family exhibition, which uses the latest environmental research to challenge visitors to create their own sustainable city of 2050. The exhibition highlights possible ways of changing and adapting how we live to ensure that we will be able to survive in 2050. The Science of Survival runs at the Science Museum, London until 2 November 2008, before touring internationally.

Simon Sproule, Corporate Vice President of Nissan said, “We are proud that Pivo will be taking its place alongside some of the wonders of human invention in the Science Museum. Pivo is an imaginative demonstration of the potential for advanced zero-emission vehicles that we believe represent a major breakthrough for clean personal mobility.”

The Science of Survival runs at the Science Museum until 2 November 2008.
