President EV

The special-purpose convertible based on the third generation President JHG50 (1990-2003). This electric vehicle was not mass-produced and was lent out by Nissan for use in special events such as transporting sumo champions in victory parades and as the leading car in marathons. It was also used at the IAAF World Championships in Athletics in 1991.
It adopted the conventional zinc battery instead of the cutting-edge lithium-ion battery (Li-ion), due to its special purposes like parading or low-speed running. With the top speed of 40km/h, it offered a driving range of 100km on a single battery charge. It accelerated 0-30km/h in 3 seconds and 0-40km/h in 9.5 seconds.
