Nissan was involved with development of EVs powered by lead-acid batteries in 1947, during the formative stages of the company.



It was the TAMA. I got to touch it in the basement of their World HQ in Yokohama. it was due to trade restrictions after the war making gasoline too expensive. an electric car was the most viable option for transportation at the time.

I saw the TAMA move in a short demonstration drive in Dec. 2012 at a LEAF gathering in Oppama Japan. I don't know how many of these EVs exist, but they were able to keep one in operation.

that is the best part of a vehicle that relies on very little moving parts that need fluid lubrication. they simply charge the batteries and turn it on!
