Nissan Xmotion Concept Reveiled

Nissan Xmotion Concept

Nissan released its Xmotion concept car at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, complete with performers who danced on the stage next to the futuristic vehicle. Fast music played in the background as the car was concealed with a cover that added mystery to the presentation. Once the drape was removed, a compact SUV with stunning features was unveiled.

The three-row vehicle can comfortably seat up to six people and continued the automaker's long history of creating innovative crossovers. The vehicle is pronounced as "Crossmotion" and incorporates Japanese culture into the design of the car, staying true to the automaker's roots. The car also features Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology that offers added convenience and safety on the road.

Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president of global design at Nissan Motor Co. said, "In the Xmotion concept, we explored the more rugged and powerful side of Nissan Intelligent Mobility. Bold and powerful forms and proportions are, upon closer inspection, contrasted with aspects of traditional Japanese craftsmanship expressed in a contemporary way."

The body of the concept car has a blend of eastern and western influences with a Japanese digital art theme used in the cabin of the vehicle. Multiple layers of details are used to increase the appeal and innovation of the Nissan Xmotion.

The exterior of the vehicle is beautifully sculpted and has a combination of edges and curves. Although there's plenty of visual simplicity with the Xmotion, its 21-inch aluminum-alloy wheels make it appear masculine and intimidating. The wheels look mechanical and create a fierce exterior that is futuristic.

The interior of the concept car is unique with side-by-side seats that are used, offering more space for each passenger in the second and third row. A long panel of wood that is used in the middle of the car separates passengers from one another and is a work of art that contributes to the Japanese style of the cabin. Additional features in the vehicle include a digital room mirror in the ceiling and the center console. The controls that are available on the infotainment system can also be adjusted with the use of eye movements and gestures from the driver, making it easy to focus moze on the road ahead. Seven different screens are built in the car.

Nissan anticipates that the concept car could work as a functional vehicle that can be used daily, whether spending time driving in the city or to a national park. The vehicle can be used as a family vehicle or for those with long commutes.

Concept cars are built by automakers to offer vision and insight into future designs and tech features that can be integrated into future models. The vehicles showcase new styling and are often introduced to the public at auto shows to gauge customer reaction and determine which features should be integrated and mass-produced in the future. The vehicles never go into production and are considered to be prototype cars. They are often extremely radical and unique but are still fully drivable.
