During the celebrations for its 80th Anniversary, Pininfarina has unveiled the Nido EV Concept.
The Nido EV Concept is based on the 2004 Nido Concept and features a platform with a hybrid powertrain and a modular chassis that can be easily adapted to four different layouts, such as a compact pickup and a mini-van with both 2 and 2+2 seating layout and pure-electric or hybrid drivetrain.
The prototype adopts a tubular steel frame, while the final version will have an aluminium space frame.
The Nido EV is powered by a rear-mounted permanent magnet motor coupled with a Zebra Z5 Ni-NaCl battery, which guarantees a range of 140 km, a top speed of 120 km/h (limited electronically), and a 0-60 km/h acceleration in 6.7 seconds.
Additional information can be found in the official press release, reported below.
