Something too wild to even influence future Nissan models.
But then. I read the official Press Kit.
And I found this:
"More than a concept, Nissan BladeGlider is both a proposal for the future direction of Nissan electric vehicle (EV) development and an exploratory prototype of an upcoming production vehicle from the world's leading EV manufacturer."
When Nissan BladeGlider matures into a production car, it could be Nissan's first use of in-wheel motors. The in-wheel motors provide rear-wheel propulsion with independent motor management, while also contributing to freedom of upper body design and space-efficient packaging.
Which means they are really considering building something like this.
Quite amazing. I am not sure how much of the original design they will be able to keep, but this is great news. We need more original and weird stuff around!
