Modification of the popular Japanese electric car will be a good helper during man-made and natural disasters. Thanks to such a mobile power plant, medical equipment can be powered, for example.

Nissan unveiled the Nissan Re-Leaf prototype based on the production model in the top Tekna version with a 62 kWh battery.

Such an electric car is able not only to be powered by electricity from the network, but also to share it – a very useful function in all kinds of rescue work. For these purposes, the Nissan electro hatch had to be modernized. So the clearance of the car was immediately increased by 7 cm so that the electric car could compete with crossovers in cross-country ability.

The prototype also received new 17-inch wheels with off-road tires.
The trunk of the car was equipped with a real control center with a large 32-inch display. The rear row of seats was removed, making room for equipment.

To ensure the mobile power station was able to cope with its tasks, it was equipped with a pair of industrial power connectors. They can be connected to equipment operating at a voltage of 110-220 volts. Moreover, the number of devices is not limited to one. With the simultaneous operation of several pieces of equipment at once, we are talking about days. This time will be enough for specialists to restore the electricity supply, albeit not completely.

Meanwhile, the Brazilian design studio Nissan has turned a Nissan Navara pickup into a rescue vehicle. The car was equipped with additional batteries, a convenient storage system and a folding platform for launching a search drone.
