Nissan Previews Future Car Design with Vmotion 2.0 Concept in Detroit
Nissan this week provided a glimpse of its future direction in car design by previewing an emotionally dynamic and futuristically styled Vmotion 2.0 concept car that will lead to eventually creating what the automaker describes as zero-emission autonomous vehicles. The automaker also unveiled a Sport variant of its Nissan Rogue compact SUV with lots of advanced safety systems at the 2017 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
The Vmotion 2.0 concept signals cues for how car design will evolve for Nissan’s midsize Altima and Murano SUV and Maxima large sedan, according to company officials. The Vmotion concept’s exterior, dressed in a warm silver paint with copper undertones, features a unique carbon finish with thin silver thread accents along the roof lines.
The roof design features wraparound glass floating back from steeply raked A-pillars to the lip of the trunk. Crisp knifelike character lines provide an edginess to the concept’s sides. Nissan’s new “Vmotion” front design, which is the name of its most recent grille design, becomes the entire front of the car, embellished with a 3-D shape. In addition, a rear diffuser glows when the car operates in semi-autonomous ProPilot mode. Rear “suicide” doors that open backwards complement the concept’s design. The more cabin-focused concept also includes Nissan’s Intelligent Driving systems.
In addition, Nissan showed off the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport variant with lots of advanced safety systems. The new Rogue Sport includes advanced safety technologies such as a full surround-view camera monitor with moving-object detection, forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection, intelligent cruise control, and rear cross-traffic alert.
