Nissan To Show Electric SUV Concept At Paris Car Show

Could this be an electric Nissan Murano?

According to Jeff Fisher, Nissan Australia’s General Manager of Media Enquirers, at next month’s Paris auto show, Nissan will show a battery-electric SUV concept. “At Paris,” Fisher said to motoring.co.au, that Nissan will “have an SUV concept, with zero emissions; so an electric SUV concept vehicle.”

Although Nissan hinted this might be a replacement for the Nissan X-TRAIL, the look coincides with the current USDM Murano.

Fisher went on to explain that there is no definitive model that this EV SUV falls under, however hinted out a concept car and a currently manufactured vehicle with much skepticism. “[Hi-Cross] was a compact SUV concept; X-TRAIL is a compact SUV so you can draw your own conclusions.”

 

Based on the pictures of the Hi-Cross concept, this swooping crossover style SUV has a style similar to the state side Murano, but if Nissan is hinting the vehicle is a replacement to the X-TRAIL, the US might not see an EV SUV from Nissan since that vehicle is currently not in the US Marketplace.

We all know that people will begin to vandalize, steal the cables, and have accidents. Please pass this information on…..thanks…GD By the year 2017, the Electric Vehicle Support Equipment industry and federal government expects to have deployed 4.1 million charging stations in communities across the United States. Giving consideration to the deployment of these high voltage appliances, we must expect and be prepared for catastrophic accidents and incidents involving electric vehicle charging stations. These accidents result from vehicle collision, natural disaster, or acts of vandalism. The potential for accidents and incidents grow exponentially as more electric vehicle charging stations are installed in public places. There are thousands of electric vehicle charging stations currently installed in public places across our country; the likelihood for catastrophic accident or incident involving these high-voltage appliances as a result of collision, vandalism, or natural disaster increase exponentially every day.
