Nissan Vmotion 2.0 Concept Previews Firm’s New Design Language
Nissan has revealed its Vmotion 2.0 concept car at the Detroit Motor Show and it’s a beautiful, futuristic masterpiece.
The Nissan Vmotion 2.0 (pictured above) is what Nissan says will be the design direction for its next generation of sedans. Unlike most concept cars, the Vmotion 2.0 does not dwell on meaningless specs or outrageous power figures. Instead, it’s all about design.
Recently revealed at the Detroit Auto Show, the Vmotion 2.0 is revolutionary when it comes to design cues and previews the next evolution of the brand’s Emotional Geometry design language.
The four-door sedan is characterised by a bold, futuristic appearance, which makes it look like something straight out of Minority Report or I, Robot.
At the front, the Vmotion 2.0 sports an over-sized rendition of the V-motion grille which also features on current vehicles in the Japanese firm’s lineup, such as the Maxima, the Rogue, the Juke and the brand-new Rogue Sport.
C-shaped headlights, with LED daytime running lights, and vertical air intakes finish off the front end’s aggressive styling.
From the side, the Vmotion 2.0 shows off more aggressive lines and its long bonnet is further accentuated. At the back there are wedge-shaped tail lights and sharp fins built into the quarter panels. Carbon fibre trim on the roof pillars gives the illusion of a floating roof, while the fact there are cameras in lieu of mirrors reminds us that this is still very much a work-in-progress concept.
Technical details are still scarce at this point, but we do know the Vmotion 2.0 will feature Nissan’s ProPilot autonomous driving technology. Almost the entire width of the dashboard is filled by a large screen which displays information to let the driver know exactly what the car is doing at any given time. While the car is in autonomous mode, the lighting around the Nissan emblem on the front grille and rear diffuser glows to alert other motorists that the car is driving itself.
