Anytime you are trying to get around in the city, there are several options, like driving a Nissan Altima from Coast Nissan, taking local electric trams and even getting a taxi. Along with these, there are several successful car sharing platforms running around the U.S., like ZipCar, but none offer access to clean and easy transportation around all major cities. To solve this problem, Nissan has launched its brand-new car-sharing service in Japan, that will quickly expand to North America and Europe. This service will feature use Nissan’s two-seater electric vehicle, which is light, compact and nicknamed “Twizy.”
While there are several benefits to owning or leasing a new or pre-owned Nissan from your local San Luis Obispo car dealer, for people who don’t travel too far for work or vacation it’s easier and more affordable to use a car sharing service. In each city, Nissan will place these vehicles in popular travel hubs, and people can then rent and return them to any of these hubs once they are finished. These hubs also charge the Twizy while it is not in use, and because the #Twizy is light and ultra-compact, drivers will never have to worry about running out of charge.
The Twizy has been in development for a few years by Nissan’s partner, Renault, and after four years of safety and economic testing, they are finally ready to hit the road. They only sit up to two people, but Nissan will likely extend the program in the future to include the Nissan Leaf. The Twizy has a top speed of around 50 miles per hour and a range of 62 miles, perfect for short trips between city destinations. Being electric, drivers will never need to stop by the gas station for a fill up, and they produce much fewer emission than a typical vehicle.
