Nissan EV4-P – The first electric car brand. This small hybrid delivery car of 1973 of release could pass without charging 302 kilometers! Agree, at that time it was a real achievement.
Nissan EV Guide. In 1977, at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Nissan brand, which at that time was the world’s leading manufacturer, introduced the first sightseeing car. In those years, the world overtook the oil crisis, so electric cars were too urgent. Why Nissan EV Guide remained only a concept, is still unknown.
Nissan NX-21 produced in 1983 in those days looked like a car of the future.

The concept Nissan NX has in its name the number 21, as it was the embodiment of a car of the 21st century. And it was true.
Nissan Jura (1987). In those years, the company gave Nissan 10-15 unique concepts a year, while the competitors obtained only 5-6.

Immediately after the release, the car took 2nd place in the FIA Electro-Solar Cup race in Japan. A car weighing 150 kg accelerates to 120 km per hour.
