we Know that the Nissan LEAF second-generation has already almost filing date. It is expected that by 2017, we know a second edition of the electric car by excellence, and this prototype that we presented in the Living in Tokyo could be a good example of this. It’s called Nissan IDS Concept and it foreshadows the future of vehicle range japanese.
Look at your design because mixing technology and a few strokes recognizable. To the contrary of what happens with the current LEAF, it sticks to the rest of the family with strokes, more rectilinear, and a few optical groups similar to those of the rest of the new range. Not in vain, Nissan says nothing about whether this prototype has something to do with the next LEAF, but we imagine it and you’ll see why.
first of all, it has opted for electric mobility. The Nissan IDS Concept, bet for a electric motor that we still have no data, but that seems to be so advanced as that we promised the brand months ago. In other words, the ability of charging of the battery is 60 kWh, twice that of a LEAF with the new evolution. If we add to that a more efficient engine and various improvements, we get closer, and probably spent, of the 400 kilometers of autonomy promised at least.
Part of the blame is the development from scratch in the creation of the car. It has been conceived as an electric, and it incorporates numerous innovations that enhance their efficiency. The size is an example of this, with a body thickness of only 1,38 meters. The aerodynamic profile is also key, and it not only affects the body, but also to external elements. The wheels are fine and the tires are keeled.
carbon fiber body eliminates weight, a key factor in consumption, and more when we talk about an electric car. And gives way to an interior that shows us the new way of Nissan in material electrical. Not only will comply in future with electric cars, but now also bet for the self-employed. The Nissan IDS Concept is also self-contained.
The interior is set up as such, being able to create different environments according to let’s go driving or go by the car. seats can change their position rotating, and is that the passenger compartment can become a complete multimedia center. The dashboard exudes a large screen from which to know the travel data, the GPS or access various applications. With the driving autonomously activated presumably will be the place to enjoy a movie.
The steering wheel can also be removed in the moments when that annoying, turning the front view of the driver on a touch interface. When they don’t, will there placed a wheel of inspiration aeronautics. Many are prototypes that show this type of wheel, little practical in everyday use, but the funny thing is the way it is retracted.
As a good autonomous car, also is able to interact with other vehicles or users. Nissan, thinking that autonomous cars will be implemented gradually, has devised a system of communication between vehicles. Thus, the side of the car iran finished off with a band that will light up in different colors to announce that the car is aware of the presence of other users on the pathway. In the same way, you can communicate with other users through text displayed at the front of the dashboard.
The technology also makes the comfort, and Nissan offers doors which open automatically or seats that rotate in order to facilitate the entry of passengers. The Lounge in Tokyo is the scenario, in which we present this Nissan IDS Concept, and it will be surely a preview of what we will see in the Nissan LEAF for second generation, a model that should be presented beyond by 2017.
