The automaker has been working with governments and organizations to advance EV infrastructure around the world. While promoting green innovation, the automaker has developed a prototype roadside service vehicle equipped with a charging system for EVs which become inoperable. Nissan and JAF have partnered to promote the real-world use of this vehicle, which is intended to create a safety net and render assistance to EVs which may run out battery power, and to help stranded motorists.
In the wake of the Nissan Leaf’s launch, JAF conducted roadside assistance training for EVs using a Leaf. JAF also initiated related practical roadside service training across Japan using other EVs in cooperation with other automakers.
Masakazu Kume, Executive Director, Japan Automobile Federation, said, “JAF has been working on ways to create an environment where motorists can drive EVs with the assurance that assistance is available and to support the adoption of environmentally-friendly EVs as part of our social contribution activities. Our participation in this trial operation is one of these activities. We have already prepared insulated gloves and goggles for our service vehicle staff to assist EVs. We will actively respond to requests from EV motorists as more and more EVs hit the road.”
