Nissan Xmotion Concept

The Nissan Xmotion Concept car has striking features despite its minimal exterior. The Japanese automaker recently unveiled the vehicle at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detriot, MI as a way to gauge the audience's reaction to the design and features of the car. The Nissan Xmotion is pronounced as "Crossmotion" and made its debut on a stage with graphics playing on a screen behind the car and dancers performing on each side of the vehicle.

The Nissan Xmotion concept car looks high-end with a sleek exterior body that does not feature any door handles. Each door opens opposite of one another, creating a dramatic impression that is similar to suicide doors that are commonly on luxury vehicles.

The interior of the Xmotion is red and black which stays true to the Japanese roots of the automaker. One of the main elements in the vehicle is light wood that's used from the dashboard to the back of the car, separating each seat. An ample amount of cargo space provided behind the second row with additional seats that are concealed in the back. Stainless steel accents added to offer a high level of contrast in the vehicle with the red and black.

As a compact SUV, the Nissan Xmotion isn't afraid to take a few risks with style and design. The minimalism offers ease of use and allows the vehicle to appear high-end. The dashboard is unique with an extended screen installed from the driver's window to the front passenger's window. An additional screen is added to the roof of the interior. The controls are incredibly advanced and respond to voice commands, eye movements, and quick hand gestures.

Despite appearing rugged with the bulky wheels used on the car, the vehicle manages to look elegant. It's large grill and the smooth hood is eye-catching and allows it to stand out as a concept car. Nissan worked hard to create a body that was influenced by European design while adding Japanese-inspired art to the interior of the vehicle.

"The exterior's combination of western and eastern concepts continues inside the Xmotion, where advanced connectivity and autonomous technologies mix with modern Japanese digital art and cultural craftsmanship. At a glance, Xmotion may appear to have a minimal design language, but a closer look reveals layers of detail that make this concept exceptional," said Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president of global design at Nissan Motor Co.

Concept cars are built to determine how well the general public responds to various looks, features, and technology. Automakers gauge the consumers' reactions and use it to influence the design of future car models that are manufactured by the car brand. Concept cars are never sold to the public and often sent to museums around the world to be put on display. Although the Xmotion may never be seen on a public road, it has inspired future models to look more futuristic and minimal, furthering the evolution of popular models for the Nissan brand.
