Nissan reveals IMx zero-emissions concept

Nissan has developed an all-electric crossover concept, the IMx. The EV – which offers fully autonomous operation and a driving range of more than 600km – was unveiled this week at the Tokyo Motor Show.

The IMx zero-emission crossover concept vehicle embodies the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility,” said Daniele Schillaci, executive vice president for global marketing at Nissan.

“Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan is committed to changing the way people and cars communicate, as well as how cars interact with society in the near future and beyond.”

At the core of the IMx’s technological features is the envisioned ProPILOT, which enables fully autonomous operation. When selected, the system stows the steering wheel inside the dashboard and reclines all the seats. But when manual drive is selected, the vehicle returns the steering wheel and seats to their original position, and transfers control back to the driver.

The IMx zero-emission concept vehicle adopts Nissan’s new EV platform, designed for maximum efficiency. Powered by a pair of high-output electric motors at the front and rear, the vehicle will produce 320kW of power and 700Nm of torque. As well as featuring all-wheel-drive capability.
