Foster + Partners and Nissan give a glimpse of the fuel station of the future

The new video, part of a project with car marker Nissan, shows the final concept behind a vision for the future of fuel stations that will be unveiled next March.

The video appears to show a Nissan electric car pulling to the side of the road where it is automatically charged.

Foster + Partners head of design David Nelson said: “As we look ahead at the next 10 years, autonomous cars, artificial intelligence and greater connectivity will come at great pace – and it is our job as architects to inspire and support that change.”

“Pre-empting those developments and integrating technologies to offer urbanites a totally seamless experience is vital, if we are to succeed in creating cities that serve us.”
