This week Nissan announced that it will unveil the Pivo 2, an advanced electric concept car, at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show. The car is powered by Compact Lithium-ion Batteries and features a unique rotating cabin, meaning no reverse gear is required. According to the company's press release , the Pivo 2 takes the idea of an environmentally friendly electric urban commuter vehicle and delivers fun, functionality and a unique relationship between the car and driver. I've seen a handful of mini electric cars on the road recently in San Francisco and while I fully support their function I'm a little shocked by their designs, which still look like geeky cars of the future. When it comes to electrical transportation does the function of the machine outweigh its design? Would you drive one?
