Nissan introduced a new conceptelectric car Nissan Re-Leaf, which can become a vehicle for rapid emergency response. The new vehicle will be used as a mobile battery for energy recovery operations in disaster areas.


As a basis for a special electric vehiclethe engineers opted for a standard production Leaf Tekna with 62 kilowatt-hours of batteries. The converted Nissan Re-Leaf will ship with the rear seats removed and the floor leveled, allowing for the transport of additional rescue equipment. The trunk houses a control center with a 32-inch plug-in monitor. An LED panel is installed on the roof.


The car has increased by 70 mm to 225 mmground clearance with special underbody protection. The distance between the wheels has also been extended (+ 90 mm for the front axle and + 130 mm for the rear), non-standard wheel arches and mud flaps are used. The rescue vehicle will receive BF Goodrich Baja All Terrain all-terrain tires on 17-inch Compomotive MO5 sports wheels.

The electric vehicle has two all-weatherindustrial connectors for power supply, as well as in the front trunk, one socket for a voltage of 110-220 V. A ventilator, a searchlight, a water heater or an electric hammer can work from the car's power plant. Each piece of equipment is capable of working on electricity from the Re-Leaf for 24 hours.
