Nissan to Launch Limited Leasing of the 2003 Model X-TRAIL FCV, Recently Approved by the Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport

Tokyo -- Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., today announced that its 2003 model X-TRAIL FCV, a high-pressure hydrogen-poweredfueled fuel cell vehicle (FCV), was approved by the Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport on November 25. As a result, Nissan now plans to launch limited leasing of the X-TRAIL FCV.

Following the approval of the 2002 model X-TRAIL FCV by the Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport in December last year, Nissan conducted repeated driving tests of the vehicle on public roads in Japan. In addition to using the data obtained in those public road tests to make various improvements, Nissan has also equipped this 2003 model of the X-TRAIL FCV with a host of new technologies to enhance its performance significantly.

The 2003 model X-TRAIL FCV is fitted with a high-power motor that generates maximum power of approximately 85 kW, about 1.5 times more power than the 2002 model, enabling the vehicle to deliver powerful driving performance. The driving cruising range has also been extended 1.75 times to more than 350 km. The increase was accomplished by adopting Nissan's Compact Lithium-ion Battery and a fuel cell stack that operates with superior efficiency. Unveiled at this year's Tokyo Motor Show, the Compact Lithium-ion Battery features high power density, outstanding cooling performance and a compact design. This battery also contributes to a substantial improvement in interior space efficiency as a result of adopting a newly developed thin, laminated cell in place of the conventional cylindrical cell.
