Nissan Motor Co. said Thursday that it has begun providing power using an electric vehicle (EV) to an earthquake-stricken area of the Noto Peninsula.

The company’s move came in response to a request for support from Ishikawa Prefecture.

The Nissan dealership in Kanazawa has provided one EV equipped with a power supply function to the town of Anamizu.
