Nissan North America doubles down on partnership with Habitat for Humanity with "The House the Media Built"


NASHVILLE Tenn. – Nissan North America further reaffirmed its ongoing commitment to Habitat for Humanity by bringing in more than 50 journalists from around the nation to participate in its 11th home build in Nashville with the organization, dubbing it "The House the Media Built." This accelerated, six-day build began Oct. 17 and was completed Friday, Oct. 28 at 4 pm with the home dedication.

"Nissan began its relationship with Habitat for Humanity more than a decade ago with a donation of $1 million, 50 TITAN trucks and an abundance of employee volunteer time following Hurricane Katrina," said Dan Bedore, director, Nissan Division Communications. "This relationship goes to the heart of our values, not only as a corporate citizen, but as neighbors in the communities in which we live, work and serve."


"The House the Media Built" follows the company's recent announcement pledging another $1 million grant to the organization, and another decade of service helping to build more homes for families in need of decent, affordable housing. Portions of Nissan's contribution will be used to expand Habitat's vehicle fleet, which supports disaster recovery efforts, with the largest portion going towards the cost of building homes in areas of the country where Nissan has an operational presence.

Nissan's partnership with Habitat began in 2005 when it donated 50 trucks and mobilized employees to assist in home building following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in the Gulf Coast region. In the last decade, Nissan has donated an additional 88 vehicles. Since 2006, Nissan's employees have logged more than 80,000 volunteer hours with Habitat for Humanity, building 71 homes across the U.S. and 11 in Nashville.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville seeks to put God's love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. Prior to becoming homeowners, Habitat future homeowners attend home education classes, work at the build site, and volunteer at Habitat's retail outlet, the ReStore. Since 1985, Habitat of Greater Nashville has built or recycled more than 770 homes.

Nissan’s Future Lab Experiments imagine new vehicle ownership models and map the future of mobility


TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. – Nissan is conducting a series of real-world experiments and trials to bring future mobility scenarios to life through several "Living Labs" underway at Nissan Future Lab. The "Living Lab" research provides user data to help Nissan anticipate and evolve to meet future transportation needs.

The difference between traditional research methods and Nissan's "Living Labs" is the research relies on networking with external partners – like San Francisco-based Scoot Networks – to uncover opportunities and learn through observing user behaviors.

"Working within the living lab framework allows Nissan to experiment out in the marketplace," said Rachel Nguyen, executive director, Nissan Future Lab. "By combining our hardware with outside software, services and systems into collaborative beta tests, Nissan has the opportunity to develop new products and service offerings that fit in the new mobility economy."

Inspired by rapid developments in electric and autonomous technology as well as ride sharing trends, Nissan's "Living Labs" focus on vehicle ownership structures, the changing marketplace for vehicle technology and new uses for electric vehicles.

Vehicle ownership structures. With the fast-paced growth of smart technologies and the emergence of the sharing economy, Nissan Future Lab is studying different sized and packaged vehicle solutions. Last October, Nissan launched its first "Living Lab" with Scoot Networks to bring 10 Nissan New Mobility Concept Vehicles (NNMC) to Scoot's fleet in San Francisco. The electric-powered "micromobility" vehicles fit between a small motorcycle and a full-size vehicle and are available for rental using the Scoot app sharing platform. Through the pilot, Nissan is gathering data on city dwellers mobility choices for short distance trips, and the role electric vehicles play as shared transportation options.

The changing vehicle technology marketplace. The sharing economy also presents new opportunities to leverage vehicle technology. Studying the emerging mobility markets and understanding new business needs – like redistributing shared vehicles to their points of origin – can lead to new applications for still-developing vehicle technologies. The Scoot "Living Lab" is also providing data on vehicle distribution to help Nissan better understand the distance traveled from the origin, popular origin points and other user behaviors.

New uses for electric vehicles. Nissan is also actively studying the expanded use of electric vehicles including vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology. Since 2014, Nissan has participated in a large V2G pilot program with the U.S. Air Force. A fleet of modified Nissan LEAF electric vehicles discharge power back into the gird through a series of bi-directional charging stations. The exchange is used to balance the overall load by absorbing excess power, then putting it back into the grid during times of high demand.

"The Future Lab team is exploring 'Living Lab' projects designed to help us better understand the real-world benefits of V2G technology for individual electric vehicle consumers and how it fits into their mobility lifestyle in the future," added Nguyen.

Rachel Nguyen will provide an update on Nissan's "Living Labs" project during the "Car of Tomorrow: Hardware Makers Building Partnerships to Succeed in a High-Tech World" session on Wednesday, Aug. 3 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. at the Center for Automotive Research's Annual Management Briefing Seminar in Traverse City. More information on the session is available at www.cargroup.org.
