Nissan Concept cars

Nissan Ellure

Nissan calls its Ellure concept "the sedan re-imagined," previewing what sort of design is possible for its forthcoming four-door range. This concept is at once elegant and aggressive, with styling elements that don't stray too far from what the automaker is currently putting out. Those headlamps, for example, use the same fin-like design of the taillights on the 370Z and Juke, and are a more forward-thinking version of what we currently see on the Maxima.

The Ellure is powered by a supercharged 2.5-liter inline-four and a 25-kilowatt electric motor, mated to the automaker's Xtronic CVT and a front-wheel-drive layout. Nissan says the concept uses regenerative braking and an advanced drive-by-wire electric/hydraulic steering system to ensure that the Ellure is as involving as possible for drivers out on the road.

Nissan e-NV200

Based on the Nissan NV200, Nissan introduced the Nissan e-NV200 concept all-electric van at the 2012 North American Auto Show in Detroit. The e-NV200 has a 24 kWh battery pack that is expected to have a range similar to Nissan Leaf of 73 mi (117 km).

Trials with a prototype were conducted with Japan Post Service beginning in July 2011, followed by trials with FedEx in London starting in December 2011. More testing with a more advanced pre-production version unveiled at the 64th IAA Commercial Vehicle International Motor Show in Hanover is scheduled to take place in Singapore, the U.S. and Brazil, and production is expected to begin in 2013.

Nissan Pivo1 ,Pivo2 ,Pivo3

The Nissan Pivo is a concept car created by Nissan. The Pivo was first introduced at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show. The car is essentially a 360 degree rotating three-seater cabin on a chassis of 4 wheels, and hence eliminates the need for reversing and makes parking easier.

The updated Pivo 3 concept was unveiled at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. The concept has one seat in the front and two in the back. The Pivo 3 features Nissan's Automated Valet Parking (AVP), which allows the car to park itself and recharge itself while parked, at specially-equipped parking lots. Also the system can find a parking space, physically park the car or remember where they parked their car. The Pivo 3 can be remotely maneuvered with a smartphone.

Nissan Townpod

The Nissan Townpod is an electric concept car presented by the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

The Townpod design features several familiar visual elements from other Nissan cars. The drivetrain featured in the concept car is the same zero-emission technology that is fitted on the Nissan Leaf. As in the Leaf, the charging points are located in the nose behind an automatically retracting cover.

Nissan TeRRa

Nissan has decided to show during the Paris Motor Show 2012, its capabilities both in terms of design and energy saving: the concept of Nissan TeRRa is super-enhanced version of the crossover Qashqai, displays surprising lines and technology powered by a fuel cell.

To move Terra Concept, Nissan has adopted an innovative system based on three blocks electric motor drive (two in back , one in front, no connection between the two trains) powered by a fuel cell in the rear floor.

Nissan 370Z GT4

the Nissan 370Z still remains within reach: the road version offers accessible true sports performance. Which is a good thing, since you’ll definitely want to get your hands on one when you see it.

The Nissan 370Z looks as good on the road as it feels. Its unmistakable sleekness features the distinctive boomerang lights and powerful curved lines. Everything about the design reveals the soul of the Nissan 370Z: a car made for action and excitement.

Nissan Leaf Nismo RC

Nissan Leaf Nismo RC Front Cornering The Nissan Leaf Nismo RC might be powered by the same 107-hp electric motor that propels the consumer-oriented Leaf, but that's where the similarities end. With its purpose-built carbon-fiber body, monocoque chassis, race-tuned suspension setup, servo-less brakes, and powerless steering, the Nismo RC is a race-ready EV on steroids.

Nismo has created about a dozen Leaf RCs. Equipped with a huge Super GT-style wing and sitting ultra-close to the ground, it certainly looks the part, but does it drive the part as well? To see if the hype is real, we jumped behind the wheel of the experimental race car at Nissan's Oppama Grandrive proving ground, about one hour south of Tokyo.

Nissan Juke Nismo

The new Juke Nismo Concept will be distinguished by Nismo’s signature colors - pearl white with red highlights - and an extreme body kit that not only offers a sportier look but improves the car’s aerodynamics as well. The body kit includes revised bumpers in the front and rear, wider fenders, and sill side skirts. The grille pattern has also been changed and the tailgate spoiler has been modified with the addition of side elements to control airflow more efficiently. The concept will sit on a new set of 19-inch alloy wheels.

The interior has also been highly modified. Everything from the steering wheel, pedals, gauges, shifter knob, and door trims have been redesigned to provide greater involvement when driving. The sporty bucket seats are covered in leather and are highlighted by dials and needles illuminated in red.

Nissan Juke-R

The Juke-R is a limited production run Juke with a Nissan GT-R's VR engine that boasts 545 bhp. Nissan has recently announced a total of 40 Juke-Rs will be produced with the 2013 GT-R's running gear and performance stats.

Nissan Invitation

The Nissan Invitation is a small five-door concept car built by Nissan and will be first shown to the public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The concept was designed and developed in Japan, but will be turned into production reality by Nissan's UK based technical centre in Cranfield, Bedfordshire. It shares the company's V-platform with the Nissan Micra.


The Nissan Hi-Cross Concept, which makes its North America debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, offers a bold design statement about the next-generation of Nissan crossovers. The design is dramatic and athletic, yet completely purposeful. The dimensions are compact, yet surprisingly roomy. And, it's fuel efficient. The concept's hybrid drivetrain is based on a new Nissan system developed for front- and four-wheel-drive models.

The Nissan Hi-Cross Concept combines sculpted style with everyday utility. It features an advanced "one motor, two clutch" gasoline/electric hybrid system and a futuristic seven-passenger interior.

Nissan Actic

The Nissan Actic was a concept car design study by Nissan Design America in La Jolla, California, and presented at the 2004 North American International Auto Show. The vehicle itself is a crossover SUV style, with smooth, bullet-shaped bodywork that looks vaguely like a small Nissan Murano.

It was never intended for production, but instead served as an exercise to display future possible technologies and design directions for Nissan vehicles, and to gauge interest in a small, entry-level SUV. One of its most original features are sliding doors, instead of traditional hinged doors. The rear doors slide to the back of the vehicle and the front doors slide to the front of the car like elevator doors, allowing a maximum amount of entry space.

Nissan AZEAL

The Nissan AZEAL is a concept car first released to the public at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. The concept is a sports coupé aimed at young drivers.

The AZEAL has a turbocharged 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine with a 6-speed manual transmission equipped with a limited-slip differential. It is front-wheel drive. No further information on the car has been released by Nissan yet. Exterior features of the AZEAL include 19" aluminum-alloy wheels, dual exhaust pipes, side skirts and a spoiler topped off with glass roof panels like those found in the Nissan Maxima and Nissan Quest.

Nissan Bevel

The Nissan Bevel is a concept crossover SUV unveiled at the 2007 North American International Auto Show.

Carlos Tavares, Nissan Motor Co. executive president of global product planning and design, says the Bevel is a study for older men who like to keep lots of tools in their vehicle, transport things, do projects outside the house and only rarely carry passengers. The owner would be driving alone 90 percent of the time, Tavares imagines.

Nissan Forum

The Nissan Forum is a concept minivan that debuted during the 2008 North American International Auto Show. It became a production version of next-generation Nissan Quest (North America) and Nissan Elgrand (Asia) on the Nissan D platform for the 2011 model year.

Nissan Nuvu

Nissan Nuvu is a compact all-electric city car with 2+1 seating, with solar panels shaped like tree leaves on the roof that channel the sun's power through a "tree trunk" conduit in the center of the vehicle. The concept car can reach about 75 mph (121 km/h) and travel up to about 80 miles (130 km) on an electric charge.

Nissan URGE

Nissan URGE is a concept car that debuted at the 2006 North American International Auto Show. Referred to as a "design exercise," many of the car's design elements were influenced by an internet survey aimed towards young automotive and video game enthusiasts.

The design incorporates unique technological elements, including a built in Xbox 360 game console. Though not intended for production, the concept was intended to represent a sports car that was more affordable than the Z or GT-R.

Nissan Terranaut

The Nissan Terranaut was a 4x4 concept car shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 2006. It was described by its manufacturer as being designed for scientists, geologists, archaeologists or adventurers, and would have seated three people, including an operator of a workstation.

The car houses three seats and a rotating spherical pod, which allows the driver to quickly rotate to their desired position outside. It measures 4.965m from stem to stern, and is just over two metres tall and two metres wide. The purpose of the extra room is to house a mini-laboratory for use in the field. It has enough refrigerated storage space to support the car's three operators for up to a week out in the field, and tents and sleeping bags may be stored in the door's storage compartments.
