Nissan Plans on Building New Breed of Electric Vehicle within 3 Years



Nissan's BladeGlider EV doesn't look like anything we have see so far, and it truly appear to be a car that just jumped out of Hollywood's science fiction movie.

Nissan is breaking the mold of the typical electric vehicle with a new battery-powered concept car called the BladeGlider with a tagline, "fearless vision of the EV future".

Techical details of this futuristic concept will be revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show this month and Nissan is calling the sharp-handling, rear-wheel-drive car a “game changer designed from scratch.”

With a shape inspired by a high performance “swept wing” aircraft, the BladeGlider is anything but conventional. The EV features a narrow track up front – much like the ZEOD RC – with a more conventional width out back. The BladeGlider's unique triangular shape allows for 1+2 seating, similar to the setup used in the McLaren F1.

The BladeGlider is powered by electric motors integrated into its rear wheels. Juice is provided by the same lithium-ion batteries used in the Nissan Leaf.

Nissan says it actually has plans to put the BaldeGlider into regular production.  So this is not an outcome of fun drawing exercise by their designers.

“The goal was to revolutionize the architecture of the vehicle to provoke new emotions, provide new value and make visible for consumers how Zero Emissions can help redefine our conception of vehicle basics,” said Francois Bancon, division general manager of Product Strategy and Product Planning at Nissan.

No timeframe has been set by Nissan for when this concept will see the production, but the representative firmly stated, "it will rule the roads of the not-so-distant future".  We shall see if they can live up to their claim.
