Nissan to Reveal New Non-Hybrid Electric Car in L.A... Well, Kinda
As the sun sets and dusk prevails over the city tomorrow night, Nissan will be unveiling their new fully electric car (not a hybrid) in Los Angeles and other West Coast cities. It won't be an event, but rather something more guerilla as a team crosses town from Santa Monica to West Hollywood, Hollywood to downtown with a projector strong enough to show images for fifteen minutes on the sides of buildings (think temporary billboards of sorts, which could be illegal, too, with our current signage controversy).
GM (and various others) may have killed the electric car years ago (oh, the memories of driving an EV1!), but Nissan is the first to re-introduce it to the market, which will be previewed this October through next Spring and then on the market in the Fall of 2010.
Over the last few months, reporters have test driven prototypes of the car, which won't be named until tomorrow in Japan where the live event it taking place. For those who happen to catch the projections, they should see the first available images, the name and a short description of the vehicle.
