New Mobility in Old Japan Town
March 12 – Shikano, Tottori Prefecture – The New Mobility Concept, a two-person Electric Vehicle (EV), is now serving even more communities, with the latest, a rural castle town near the Sea of Japan.
Local inn owners in Tottori wanted to craft a hot spring and local car-share visit package for Shikano’s narrow roads, contacting Nissan to bring the EV to the town.
Some 155 of the EVs, which have become a staple in Yokohama transportation under the “Choi Mobi” name, have been used in 22 different locations for tourism and transit across Japan.
Shikano EV rentals range from about $10 for one hour to $40 for six hours, with an additional training license charge of $12.
