NISSAN AND FOSTER + PARTNERS REVEAL FUEL STATION OF THE FUTURE CONCEPT
Nissan and Foster + Partners revealed a fully connected vision of the future of mobility. The landmark partnership, between the manufacturers of the world’s best-selling 100 percent electric vehicle and the leading international architecture, engineering and design studio, concluded that the Fuel Station of the Future could actually be the car itself.

The project brings together two brands famed for their innovative, bold design and desire to challenge conventions to offer a fascinating view of how fuelling stations will adapt in a rapidly changing world.

As undisputed leaders and market experts in EV design, engineering and manufacturing, Nissan is perfectly placed to establish a vision for the Fuel Station of the Future. The brand recognises that the refuelling infrastructure of the future represents the perfect opportunity to integrate and engage with local environments in an innovative way – potentially providing an energy and societal hub for modern communities.

The need for a sustainable and innovative refuelling network is becoming vital as the market shifts toward alternative sources like electric power.

The concept will be anchored at the heart of a world that is concerned with a zero-emissions society, connected communities, autonomous drive and the Internet of things. It will demonstrate the host of benefits brought by a smart EV ecosystem - not just in terms of mobility, but in harnessing the potential of battery storage and vehicle- to-grid systems.

The need for a sustainable and innovative refuelling network is becoming vital as the market shifts toward alternative sources like electric power. According to the latest World Bank data, today, more than half (54%) of the world’s population lives in cities and by 2050, seven out of every 10 people will live in urban areas, so it is imperative that the infrastructure exists to support this growth.

The collaboration, carried out over of a 12-month period, offers a snapshot of what’s to come from Nissan’s vision for Intelligent Mobility; a world in which cars interact with their environment as populations adopt zero emission, Piloted Drive technologies. Illustrated in a video, featuring the best-selling Nissan LEAF and futuristic IDS Concept, the visionary concept explores how our urban environments and ways of living might change as technology develops.



David Nelson, Co-Head of Design, Foster + Partners:
“Integrating zero emission technologies into the built environment is vital in creating smarter, more sustainable cities. That commitment must extend far beyond the car – it must sit at the heart of everything we do.”

Paul Willcox, Chairman, Nissan Europe:
“Technology holds many of the answers for the challenges we face in our cities today. However, the true power comes when those technologies are integrated with each other and the world around us. We’ve been at the forefront of zero emission technology since 2010, but our vision does not stop there – we believe that the future of transportation is reliant on both infrastructure and the environment. We’re looking for real, workable solutions that go beyond the product.”

  • Nissan is the leader in zero emission technology, and pioneered the commercial electric vehicle market in 2010. The Nissan LEAF – the first mass-market, pure EV launched globally – continues to be the best-selling EV in history.

  • Nissan is currently trialling an innovative Vehicle-to-Grid system in Europe which, when coupled with advances in its second-life batteries, will allow drivers to operate as individual ‘energy hubs’ able to store, use or return clean energy to the grid.

  • Incorporating a range of pioneering Nissan technologies, the vision hints at how vehicle-to- grid, battery storage, wireless charging, autonomous drive technology and over-the-air connectivity could combine to revolutionise how energy is used and distributed across Europe’s major cities.
