Nissan’s vision for future automotive solution is both ingenious and practical to say the least, and the Nissan iV electric vehicle is proof of it all. A perfect amalgamation of sports and performance aesthetics the iV is completely based on nature’s intelligence like the chassis that is re-enforced with spider silk composite that is extremely robust and lightweight. This ultra-lightweight sports tourer will have automotive components developed from organic synthesis based on carbon neutral process. The vehicle comfortably seats 4 people and the cabin is made from photovoltaic material that is 99% less heavy than glass. It also has a solar panel in the canopy and a bio-battery that uses super-capacitor technology to regain 60% of kinetic energy spent.
