Nissan Shows Off Raised, Rugged RE-LEAF Emergency Response Vehicle Concept

This LEAF will bring you response, recovery and resilience following natural disasters or extreme weather events.

Nissan has unveiled today a new EV concept, the Nissan RE-LEAF, envisioned as an emergency response vehicle, which can act as a mobile battery supply to power recovery operations.

The name comes after three ‘REs’ of disaster preparedness: “providing an emergency response, aiding the humanitarian recovery and improving community resilience for the future”.

The car is based on the 62 kWh LEAF e+, but as you can see, with multiple modifications, including removed rear seats, levelled floor to provide storage for essential equipment and a custom bulk-head cage to separate the front seats from the cargo area.

The car has a raised ride height by 70mm to 225mm with a custom ‘sump guard’ to protect the car’s floor pan. The list include also wider tracks (+90mm front / +130mm rear), custom wheel arches, mud flaps and all-terrain tyres on 17-inch motorsport wheels. There is even a roof-mounted LED light bar.
