Worlds Coolest Golf Cart? Nissan’s New Concept EV

2 November 2010 5 Comments

Isn’t this the coolest golf cart you’ve ever seen?

Nissan EC Concept Car

Okay, it’s not a golf cart. This is the ‘NISSAN New Mobility CONCEPT’ an EV (electric vehicle) model proposed yesterday.

Four keywords outline the NISSAN New Mobility CONCEPT:
* Innovative – New two-seater compact mobility for various needs and occasions
* Easy – Size which enables anyone to drive and park easily
* Safe – Maneuverability equivalent to motorbikes with greater safety
* Clean – No emissions while driving

One idea behind using this design is that it would be well suited for the elderly, this is in response to the trend of Japan’s aging population. It would also be a fit for the increasing number of single households. That extra seat in the car beside you would only remind you of what a lonely failure you are; don’t need it.

The current design doesn’t seem to have an enclosed cockpit, which would be pain if you were driving on a rainy day or during winter. This would obviously be changed if they ever start production.

Here’s it in action:

I gotta say I like how it looks; I wouldn’t mind trying one out. But if there’s a contest for coolest golf cart we definitely shouldn’t count this guy out.

    I’d like to try one if I ever get the chance, but I wonder what it’s range would be. Is it designed only for in-city driving or would you be able to actually commute with it?

    They say the drive range is 100km.

    I don’t like this as much as the leaf or cube, it is just a gold cart!
