Nissan PIVO 3 concept announced [video]

Essentially an evolution of the Pivo 1 and Pivo 2 concepts, the Pivo 3 is an urban commuter EV of the near future.

Nissan has announced plans to introduce the Pivo 3 concept at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Essentially an evolution of the Pivo 1 and Pivo 2 concepts, the Pivo 3 is a "smart urban commuter EV of the near future." As such, it measures less than three meters long and has in-wheel electric motors for maximum maneuverability.

Inside, the cabin is elegantly equipped with premium leather, metallic trim and a digital instrument cluster. There's also a McLaren F1-style seating arrangement which doesn't look very comfortable.

Specifications were not released, but Nissan says the concept has an Automated Valet Parking system which allows the car to "automatically drive, locate a parking space and park without driver assistance." More interestingly, the car can return to you when called by a smartphone.
