Nissan RE-LEAF: Power when it’s needed, where it’s needed

2020/09/29

PARIS – Nissan today unveiled a 100% electric emergency response vehicle concept, designed to provide a mobile power supply following natural disasters or extreme weather.

Real-world applications of EVs during disasters

Natural disasters are the biggest cause of power outages. A 2019 World Bank report found natural shocks and climate change caused 37% of outages in Europe between 2000 and 2017, and 44% of outages in the U.S. over the same period.

During that period, electric vehicles can provide zero-emission mobile emergency power. Improving resilience with EVs Acting as a portable power station, the latest generation Nissan LEAF e+ with a fully charged 62 kilowatt-hour battery can provide enough electricity to power the average European household for six days.

As a disaster recovery vehicle, the RE-LEAF can power multiple devices simultaneously.

Nissan RE-LEAF in detail

The Nissan RE-LEAF supports the three "REs" of disaster preparedness – providing an emergency response, aiding the humanitarian recovery and improving community resilience for the future.

The RE-LEAF's amber color scheme is a nod to the ancient Greek word for amber – electron – the origin of the word electricity. This pairs with the blue color scheme of our Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision to reference the concept's connected abilities.
