Nissan Motor has just recently revealed an overview of what to expect from them at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show, starting on the 30th October 2015.
Among the exhibits will be a number of innovative concepts and components the brand has been working on, these include: Teatro for Dayz, Nissan Gripz Concept, leading-edge autonomous drive and safety technologies as well as the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo.
A total of 20 vehicles will be on display, including the X-Trail Hybrid Mode Premier and Juke 16GT Four personalisation models, and special feature models including the Skyline 350GT Hybrid Type-SP Cool Exclusive, Fuga 370GT Type-S Cool Exclusive and Serena Highway Star V Selection.
The main featured vehicles will be the Teatro for Dayz, the Nissan Gripz Concept, the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo and the Nissan IDS concept.
The Teatro for Dayz is based around the concept Nissan describes as “share natives.” The “share natives” are a generation that went straight from the cradle to digital technology and are a generation that will reach driving age in a few years, but has shown little interest so far.
The Teatro for Dayz aims to excite these “share natives” with its innovative design and features that enable “share natives” to create and share experiences. Its key feature is designed under the concept of “a clean canvas” where its smooth white interior allows the instrument panel, seats and even the door trim to serve as a blank canvas for expression. This means that the “share natives” can freely create and share their experiences with the entire car serving as a platform for inspiration.
Teatro for Dayz is a combination of mobile technologies. Combined with Nissan’s EV technology, this car represents a radical new way of thinking about how vehicles can be used.
The Nissan Gripz Concept was envisaged by designers in Europe and Japan and aims to blend the ability and practicality of a compact crossover whilst maintaining the excitement and performance of a sports car. With an efficient gasoline engine that powers the same electric motor used on the Nissan LEAF, the Nissan Gripz Concept offers a smooth, refined and exhilarating driving experience with its E-V-technology based series hybrid system.
Outside, the Nissan Gripz is based around the “emotional geometry” body sculpting concept which portrays strong contrasts through the dynamic and edgy design. Inside, there is a “gliding wing” instrument panel, with a neat thin design that combines strength with simplicity.
The Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo is concept supercar developed in conjunction with Polyphony Digital Inc, the creators of the racing video game Gran Turismo for PlayStation 4. The latest creation from Nissan comprises of a new Fire Knight Red body colour and features a new expression of Nissan’s signature V-motion grille.
The Gran Turismo 2020 concept is a real-world picture of a virtual car, through which gamers can experience Nissan’s dynamic performance and innovation.
The Nissan IDS concept is a four-seat hatchback that hints strongly at the styling of the next Nissan Leaf.
The IDS has two different cabin configurations - manual driving mode or 'piloted' mode which turns over driving to the vehicle with all aspects imitating the driver's own style and preferences.
The Nissan IDS has different interiors depending on whether the driver opts for manual or piloted drive. Even though it is a hatchback there is plentiful room for four adults thanks to the IDS concept's long wheelbase. However, when the driver selects piloted mode the cabin becomes even more spacious with the steering wheel receding into the centre of the instrument panel and a large flat screen appearing.
The IDS is fitted with a high-capacity 60 kWh battery which paired with the model's design is able to meet the need for long distance driving. Other technologies include Piloted Park that can be operated using a smartphone or tablet, and wireless charging technologies.
