The Nissan Terra fuel cell SUV concept officially took the stage today at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. The Nissan Terra SUV concept may just look like another rugged SUV, but underneath its bulging fenders lies a green hydrogen fuel cell stack and the same electric motor that powers the Nissan LEAF.
“Our challenge was to take Nissan’s strength in SUVs and crossovers forward into the zero-emissions era, fuel cells being our new frontier in zero emission mobility” said Francois Bancon, Nissan’s devision general manager of product strategy and planning. “Not big and tough for the desert, the aim was a new approach to SUVs that’s relevant to urban life. The unique diagonal seating layout that offers an exciting driving experience thanks to exceptional visibility that creates a sense of being in control under any conditions.”
