Why Isn’t the Nissan Sakura Electric Car Sold in the USA?

The Nissan Sakura is what is known in Japan as a kei car a Japanese microcar, the smallest highway-legal passenger car with limited dimensions and engine size. The Nissa Sakura, an electric car, is far from being the only kei car but it is one of the few available kei electric cars. Specs are modest, with just 20 kWh of battery capacity and a range of 112 miles (180 km). It will have just 62 hp (43 kW) and is sold for around $14,000 (1.78 million yen). But it will still fit four adults and some luggage, and it has a top speed of 81 mph (130 km/h).

Considering that people in the USA drive around 40 miles a day on average this vehicle’s range is more than enough for a daily driver and at $14,000, it is far cheaper than most available cars in the U.S.

  • 1/2" thick copper plates interspersed with 3/4" G10FR4 sheets creates a multilayer capacitor array glued together with a high dielectric strength epoxy at the bottom of the craft.
  • The G10FR4 at that 3/4" thickness has a dielectric strength of 600kV.
  • The minimum stated voltage applied to the capacitors was 1.2 million volts double that rating.

  • When Eugene Podkletnov's superconducting disc is rotated considerably faster than its originally tested 5,000 rpm there are strange effects.
  • Rotating the superconducting disc between 25,000 - 50,000 rpm causes the disc to lift into the air.

  • Device 2 was used to show the effects of dielectric material being placed between the conductive plates in the capacitor.
  • Device 2 was seen to move about an eighth of a rotation and stop when tested with a single 44kV pulse applied.

  • In device No. 69, a 19kV was applied to the test capacitor at pulse rate of 600hz resulting in a very small but detectable motion being seen on the torsion pendulum.
