A New EV Charge for Superhero Ultraman

June 12 – Yokohama – Japanese Superhero Ultraman uses stored solar power to fight against the forces of galactic evil, but in his latest TV adventure his earthly defense team will rely on a new zero-emission source for mobility – electric vehicles.

The Japanese cosmic giant and Defense Team UPG will use reconfigured Nissan EVs – a Nissan LEAF and e-NV200 – in the 16-part “Ultraman Ginga S” TV series, set to air from mid-July.

The new TV Tokyo series is the latest iteration of the positively-charged character who first appeared in 1966.

To celebrate the new season and ultra zero-emissions mobility, photo sessions for the two decked-out EVs will be held at Tokyo Big Site from Wednesday in conjunction with Tsuburaya Productions.

For a behind-the-scenes look at the Nissan EVs as they were transformed, as well as innovations such as the Autonomous Drive EV mode for the UPG team, please enjoy the below video.
