Nissan reveals Vmotion 2.0 concept in Detroit

Taking centre stage on the Nissan stand at the North American International Auto Show, the Vmotion’s crisp, angular styling hints at a future design direction for the Japanese brand.

The Vmotion 2.0 concept features Nissan Intelligent Driving, one of the three core elements of the brand's new Intelligent Mobility strategy, the company's roadmap to achieve zero emissions and zero fatalities.

"Technology is evolving. So is design. At Nissan we see design as the ultimate expression of how customer see themselves, but also an expression of the vision and values of our brand," said Shiro Nakamura, Senior Vice President, Chief Creative Officer at Nissan. "Vmotion 2.0 previews what the future designs from Nissan will be. And it is an insightful proposition of what the future sedan could be in the coming years."

The Vmotion 2.0 concept's silhouette is characterised by a "floating roof" with a line flowing from the steeply raked A-pillars to the boot lip. A long wheelbase shows off the car's ‘generous’ cabin, visible via rear-hinged, rear doors, which create a wide opening, while the distinctive body surface is defined by Nissan's "Emotional Geometry" design language. The dynamic high-tension body is crafted in a 'warm silver' paint with copper undertones. With a layered effect for the paint finish, a glimpse of the body at different angles reveals a subtle but different hue, says Nissan.
