Nis­san hints at an elec­tric fu­ture

Gloucestershire Echo - - MOTORING NEWS -

THERE’S a hint about Nis­san’s of the fu­ture in a one-off de­sign be­ing given its pre­miere at the 2019 North Amer­i­can mo­tor show in Detroit.

The Nis­san IMS Con­cept car is elec­tri­cally pow­ered and can fully drive it­self, with head and tail lights that turn blue to tell pedes­tri­ans when the car is in fully au­ton­o­mous mode.

Elec­tric mo­tors front and rear pro­duce a to­tal of 483 horse­power and the IMS has a pro­jected range of 380 miles on a sin­gle charge of its 115kwh bat­tery.

The three seats in the rear of the car can be quickly turned into one big ‘premier seat,’ made eas­ier to reach through re­verse open­ing rear doors.

Air sus­pen­sion adapts to dif­fer­ent road con­di­tions to give pas­sen­gers ‘a silky, smooth ride,’ says Nis­san.
