Nissan has just presented its long and medium term strategy Ambition 2030, which carries the electric cars by flag, and has accompanied it with up to four prototypes who intend to advance the design and technology of the Japanese firm for the next few years.
And it is that the plans of the Japanese manufacturer are written on the new CMF-EV platform, which already welcomes the newcomer Nissan Ariya, its first 100% electric SUV and the first car of its next generation of zero emissions.
But also in solid state batteries of own manufacture or in a new modular platform for zero emissions of kind skateboard that will allow to develop models of different segments.
They are born like this four concepts, which at the moment are digital renders and essentially design exercises, although the brand gives clues of its technologies that will be present in the future offspring of Nissan: the Nissan Chill-Out, the Nissan Max-Out, the Nissan Surf-Oryou and him Nissan Hang-Out.
Nissan aims to reach 2030 with 23 new electrified models, among which there will be 15 new completely zero-emission cars.
Nissan Chill-Out Concept: a cinema on wheels with all-wheel drive
In this quartet of prototypes, the Nissan Chill-Out Concept is the only one who sits on the CMF-EV platform and anticipates a future electric crossover.
Beyond its zero-emission mechanics and its rounded shapes or its high waist, what is most striking about this Chill-Out Concept is its minimalist cabin, more thought to be than to drive.
It is configured by giving prominence to a widescreen as the epicenter, a retractable steering wheel, a digital control in the central tunnel and four seats. When you are not driving, the screen becomes a kind of television for enjoy multimedia content be it series, movies or whatever.
In addition, this prototype integrates the e-4ORCE technology, which is basically the new all-wheel drive system exclusively for electric cars and based on at least two propellers: one on each axle. This new system has been putting Nissan to the test for some time.
A trio as an aperitif of the new electric platform and solid state batteries
In the same way, framed in his study of technology Nissan EV Technology Vision, the Japanese firm unveils other three prototypes that serve as an aperitif to your new modular platform for electric and new technologies of the brand in terms of zero emissions.
Although at the category level they differ from each other, they are all cut by the same pattern, where the solid state batteries (ASSB), electric motors, a low center of gravity, all-wheel drive e-4ORCE but even more advanced or driving assistance systems ProPILOT.
The first of this trio is the Nissan Max-Out, a kind of roadster sporty and two-seater, focused on offering the maximum dynamic qualities for zero emissions. In passing with him, Nissan makes clear its intention to have sports models in the future as well.
Accurate steering and suspensions that minimize sway are its credentials, coupled with a seat with a fully foldable backrest, a generous panoramic screen, a low center of gravity, a featherweight or the system of all-wheel drive e-4ORCE.
Second in Discord is a prototype of pick-up, the Nissan Surf-Out Concept, that boasts of being conceived to enjoy off the asphalt. The cabin is also very minimalist, it only gives space for two occupants, marinated with a huge flat-bottomed cargo box.
Technology again e-4ORCE is present, but more focused on offering off-road qualities.
In short, a proposal that comes to join the fashion of electric pick-up where we already find the new Hummer EV, the Rivian R1T or the long-awaited Tesla Cybertruck and in turn is understood as a successor to the Nissan Navara but in an eco key.
This prototype tour is closed by Nissan Hang-Out Concept, other Electric SUV and again with a cabin designed to enjoy and focused on that future in which cars will drive alone.
Thus, the front seats can be rotated to create a kind of lounge in combination with the rear. In addition, Nissan points out that it has been configured to reduce vibrations to the maximum, with its main objective being to ensure maximum comfort for the occupants.
Among the technologies that it integrates, beyond a low center of gravity and a flat bottom, the all-wheel drive stands out. e-4ORCE as well as ProPILOT assistance systems but more advanced and closer to Level 5 autonomous driving.
Although it is to be expected that these three concepts do not see the light of day, they do serve as a reference for these future technologies that will sooner rather than later be integrated into the next Nissan launches.
