The look of the Denki Cube is already known in Japan, where a 1.3-liter four cylinder gas version has already been on sale. However, this electric version is stretched 9.4 inches to accommodate the battery pack.
As a concept, the Denki Cube gets a futuristic dashboard, with an LCD instead of an instrument cluster, plus a center display with icons for navigation and other car functions. A big display also shows whether the car is in Park, Drive, Reverse, or Neutral.
Nissan showed off a battery module next to the car. This module is made up of four thin cells. The battery pack for the car uses 24 modules. The car's range is estimated at 100 miles, with a 75mph top speed.
Nissan also displayed a couple of Cube models that had been decorated by art students, probably in an effort to compete with Scion in the youth market. These cars herald the gas-powered Cube's introduction to the U.S. in Spring of 2009.
