M it the Vmotion 2.0, Nissan provides the design of future sedans before: futuristic, dynamic and more focused on the interior. Technically, show a new operating concept with touch screens and ideas for autonomous driving in the future. The Japanese manufacturer calls its mobility concept of tomorrow 'Nissan Intelligent Mobility' - the 2.0 is not a cubic capacity specification, but an indication of the technology of the study: On board are the ProPilot, autonomous driving functions for the city.
Flat roof , long wheelbase
The front of the Vmotion study will at least look familiar to US customers, the V-shaped chrome clasp is already available in a less conspicuous form on Murano and Maxima. Compared to that 4.90 meter long and 1.86 meter wide sedan that is sold in the US, the Vmotion is flatter and wider. The study is 4.86 meters long and 1.89 meters wide. The low height of 1.38 meters is quite unusual. Despite the shorter body of 2.85 meters, the study has a wheelbase that is a good seven centimeters longer than the Maxima: The space in the interior was important to the designers.
Because even if we drive autonomously, we may not spend less time in the car. We just have more time for other things. Take a look around the car, for example. As almost always in studies, there is a lot to see: leather that is supposed to be reminiscent of noble handbags, or a sound system from Bose whose speakers are built into the headrests, among other things.
There is a B-pillar it doesn't
A component of ProPilot is also a new user interface: the main display is integrated into the dashboard. The functions of the infotainment system are controlled via a multifunctional touchpad. There is a touchscreen at the front and back, so those behind the wheel also have access to some information and functions.
The front and rear doors swing open in opposite directions and open almost at a 90-degree angle. There is no B-pillar, but an A-pillar with a carbon finish. The Nissan logo on the front shows with its lighting whether the car is driving or the driver is controlling. Sharp edges in the flanks contrast with the curved roof line, and a two-tone paint finish enhances itDifference.
