Nissan’s First Electric Vehicle: The 1947 Tama | The Truth About Cars

Nissan’s First Electric Vehicle: The 1947 Tama | The Truth About Cars: "It’s probably a bit of a stretch to call the 1947 Tama a “Nissan.” This lead-acid battery-powered two-door was developed in response to post-War oil rationing by the unemployed aircraft engineers of Tachikawa Airplane Company, a firm that later renamed itself the Tokyo Electric Motorcar Co. That company later became the Prince Motor Company, which in turn merged with Nissan, making the Tama a tenuous but real part of Nissan’s EV legacy."
