Nissan's advanced prototype Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV) is part of Nissan's fleet participating in the California Fuel Cell Partnership trials in the US. Its UK tour acts as a catalyst to bring together like-minded organisations including local and national government, academic institutions and regional development agencies.
The Renault-Nissan Alliance will introduce zero-emission vehicles in the United States and Japan, starting with electric vehicles, from 2010. The Alliance aims to take the leadership of zero-emission mobility in the automotive industry and will start mass-marketing electric vehicles globally in 2012. To date the Alliance has signed two final agreements in Europe with Portugal and the Principality of Monaco. The two agreements formulate concrete proposals - ranging from incentives and infrastructures to education programmes - creating the right conditions for mass availability and acceptance of electric vehicles.
Along with this near-term plan to introduce electric vehicles to the mass-market globally by 2012, the FCV work is a longer-range programme designed to enhance practicality and reduce costs of the technology, and includes the plan to release newer generation, developmental FCVs in the 2010s. Nissan is now developing a third generation of its proprietary fuel cell stack, with increased longevity, greater power and further weight reductions.
