Nissan RE-LEAF Concept Unveiled: Power When You Really, Really Need It

Nissan has presented the RE-LEAF all-electric electric emergency response vehicle concept, designed to provide a mobile power supply following natural disasters or extreme weather. The RE-LEAF is, you guessed it, a prototype based on the Nissan LEAF.

Modifications have been made to the model so it can successfully debris-covered roads, and it includes elements like weatherproof plug sockets mounted directly to the exterior of the vehicle. These enable 110- to 230-volt devices to be powered from the car's high-capacity lithium-ion battery.

Relief, no matter how you spell it
The RE-LEAF can be driven into the centre of a disaster zone and provide a fully mobile power supply to help first responders. The integrated energy management system can, for example, run medical, communications, lighting, heating and other life-supporting equipment.

"We're constantly exploring ways that electric vehicles can enrich our lives, beyond just zero-emission transportation. Concepts like the RE-LEAF show the possible application of EVs in disaster management and demonstrate that smarter, cleaner technology can help save lives and provide greater resilience."
