The Essence does not use a torque converter but has two seperate clutches for the gas and electric powered motors.

Its all-terrain potential is underlined by the venturi-style skid plate at the rear of the vehicle, Qazana' extended ground clearance and the soft rubber spats which edge the wheel arches and help to disguise the vehicle' long suspension travel. The interior is defined as masculine/mechanical with the shape of the centre console and armrest being inspired by the fuel tank and seat of a sports motocycle. Additionally, Qazana has 'floating' seats centrally mounted over a one-piece rubberised floor covering and a dashboard which is dominated by a centrally mounted screen which doubles as a navigation display and can deliver vital information relating to Nissan' next generation fully electronic ALL MODE four-wheel drive with torque vectoring system and other advanced technical processes.

The exterior projects a sense of strong mass with a refined contrast between broad planes and strong shoulders. The body is draped over the front 21-inch wheels and radiates outward. The grille was inspired by a "Kamishino" Samurai formal coat. The sides are dominated by large 90-degree opening doors with rear-hinged suicide-stye rear doors for full panoramic interior access. The interior features a dramatic instrument panel which flows from door-to-door and seamlessly intefrages with the door panels. Interior materials consist of chrome-free leather and seats which are covered with a black eco-suede utilizing recycled fibres and red acrylic seatback panels. The drivetrain is conceived as a supercharged 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder with Intelligent Dual Clutch Control (one motor/two clutch design with lithium-ion battery) and 25 kW electric motor, matched with an Xtronic CV and front-wheel drive. It would also include an independent suspension, regenerative braking, and advanced drive-by-wire electric/hydraulic steering to make sure the driving experience is as dynamic and rewarding as Ellure' physical properties.

Infiniti IPL Cabrio Concept   Infiniti IPL Cabrio Concept   Infiniti IPL Cabrio Concept   Infiniti IPL Cabrio Concept   Infiniti IPL Cabrio Concept   Infiniti IPL Cabrio Concept  
Infiniti' passion for cars - and the art, craft and technology that goes into making them so special - is given full rein at the 2010 Paris Motor Show with the debut of the Infiniti IPL G Cabrio Concept. Resplendent in new Malbec Black - a pearlescent black paint with red hints - and Monaco Red leather interior complemented by unique new cabin inlays inspired by the finessed craftsmanship of samurai armour, the ultimate G Cabrio in concept form is a bespoke and very exclusive fulfilment of Infiniti design values. Already perhaps the most handsome hard-top cabriolet whether the three-piece electric roof is up or down - an operation that takes just 25 seconds - the Paris concept' exterior changes sum up the dynamic character behind the IPL badge. Perfectly poised on its new 19-inch split-rim 7-spoke graphite-finish alloy wheels, the Infiniti IPL G Cabrio Concept' stand-out style is based around a sporting new front-end look. A new bumper section and blacked-out grille and headlight surrounds bring an aggressive new edge to the Cabrio while integrating perfectly with the rest of the design. Finally, the IPL G Cabrio is powered by a tuned version of the VQ37VHR 3.7L V6 that is in use today via the current G37 lineup.

Nissan Townpod Concept   Nissan Townpod Concept   Nissan Townpod Concept   Nissan Townpod Concept   Nissan Townpod Concept   Nissan Townpod Concept   Nissan Townpod Concept   Nissan Townpod Concept  
Nissan Townpod provides a simple platform, which each user can individually tune to their own peculiar needs. It employs the same zero-emission technology found within Nissan LEAF. The innovative position of the headlights also allows a coupe-esque bonnet line, not dissimilar to Nissan Z, which feeds in to a visor-like wraparound, blue tinted glass house, reminiscent of Nissan Cube, while the galls to body proportions hark back to the rat-rods of the fifties. The rear lights are designed to reflect light like cut jewels when not in use, and to sparkle rather than simply glow when illuminated. The cargo area, passenger space and dashboard are remarkably uncluttered yet do not feel spartan. The design is to simply be uncomplicated in use and includes stalks and multiple monitor systems. While Nissan Townpod has been created with the world' entrepreneurs in mind, its appeal is likely to go beyond this expanding demographic to new families building their first home or retirees turning a hobby into a business.


2011 ESFLOW Concept

The ESFLOW has been created from the ground up as a pure electric vehicle using technology introduced in the Leaf EV. The concept model runs on two electric motors with an unspecified output that are placed above the axis of the rear wheels, in a mid-ship position. These motors independently control the left and right wheels, with Nissan claiming that the torque is optimized to ensure vehicle stability and control as well as efficient power regeneration. The motors are powered from the same laminated lithium-ion battery packs used in the Leaf, but in ESFLOW the packs are located along the axis of the front and rear wheel. The batteries are said to offer a driving range of over 240 kilometers or 149 miles on a single charge. The car also features a composite body that covers an aluminium chassis which incorporates its own roll cage.


2011 PIVO 3 Concept

The compact 3-seater model measures under 3.0-meters (118-in.) long and is motivated by four in-wheel electric motors. As noted previously, it gets all-wheel drive steering that makes it highly maneuverable in the city. The PIVO 3 is also equipped with an Automated Valet Parking (AVP) system that enables the car to automatically drive, locate a parking space and park without any driver assistance in the infrastructure-equipped parking lots of the future. And if that ain't enough, Nissan says that it can also charge itself and return to its driver at the AVP exit when called by smartphone.
