Paris Motor Show: Nissan Townpod

September 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

The clue’s in the name: the Townpod’s an urban utility concept, combining the assets of a compact van with the usability of a passenger car, thanks to a roomy, adaptable interior. It’s about practicality rather than status, with vertically-split rear doors, a flat floor, a large opening roof hatch, a sliding rear seat which folds away into the back of the front seats, and rear-hinged rear doors with no obstructive B-pillar. Its interior is functional and simple, with an allegedly future-proof audio system, touch-screen controls and a handy storage device called the Puck, a small rubber ball with a groove – and it’s all driven by the Leaf’s all-electric powertrain.  This is a concept which should become reality.
