Nissan Leaf Electric cars can act as a power source for external devices and have been used in some emergency situations.
Now the company has produced a concept emergency response vehicle called RE-LEAF that is specifically designed for emergency work.
To better enable the car to navigate roads where there might be obstructions or fallen debris, the RE-LEAF’s ride height has been raised, there’s a custom ‘sump guard’, wider track, custom wheel arches, mud flaps and all-terrain tyres on 17” motorsport wheels.
But it doesn’t have four-wheel drive.
The rear seats have been removed and the floor levelled to provide storage for essential equipment.
Once the RE-LEAF arrives at a disaster zone, a bespoke pull-out desk, extends from the boot with a 32” LED screen and dedicated power supply creating an operational hub to run communications from and manage the recovery process.
