Nissan's Pivo 3 EV concept is a futuristic three-seater that expands on the Pivo and Pivo 2. The driver sits in the center position of the Pivo 3 EV, which allows for better visibility. However, the concept car has some rather innovative features to make driving and charging easier.

According to Nissan, the Pivo 3 EV features technology called Automated Valet Parking (AVP), which allows the driver to find a parking spot without driving around and around a parking garage. With AVP, the Pivo 3 EV can also charge itself and return to its driver when called by smartphone.

Like the Pivo and Pivo 2 , the Pivo 3 EV concept is perfect for urban driving. The 10-foot-long Pivo 3 can pull off a U-turn in just 13 feet.

The Pivo 3 EV concept will be revealed at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show next month.
