The new electric car was named Re-Leaf and was designed on the basis of the Leaf electric car, but, unlike it, it received sockets with protection against moisture, easy access and voltage of 110-230 V. It was created specifically to supply energy to equipment in the emergency zone. situations in the face of any disaster. The Re-Leaf battery will not discharge during the entire period of debris removal and emergency treatment. A full charge is also sufficient to provide food for a family for six days.
The electric car has a number of advantages over the serial version: it is able to move on roads strewn with debris and debris due to the increased ground clearance, it has additional floor protection and wider wheels. There is a pull-out table in the luggage compartment, and there is plenty of free space in the rear seats. It is not yet known when electric vehicles will join the fleet of emergency services. At the same time, in Japan, the converted Nissan Leaf has been performing a similar mission since 2011.
