Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept makes world debut at NAIAS 2017
Jan. 9 – Detroit, Michigan – Nissan signaled the future direction of the company’s sedan design direction and intelligent-mobility technology with the world debut of the Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept at the 2017 North American International Auto Show. The Vmotion 2.0 concept combines a high sense of style, emotional design, space, comfort and technology to make the mobility experience seamless for busy professionals.
The Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept offers hints at the future of “Nissan Intelligent Mobility,” 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 customers see themselves, but also an expression of the vision and values of our brand,” said Shiro Nakamura, Nissan’s chief creative officer. “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 Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept’s dramatic silhouette is characterized by a “floating roof,” with a line flowing seamlessly from the steeply raked A-pillars to the trunk lip. An extended wheelbase shows off the car’s generous cabin, 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.
The Vmotion 2.0 concept also won the EyesOn Design Award for Design Excellence in two categories, Concept Car and Innovative Use of Color, Design and Materials.
The Vmotion 2.0 concept will be on display at the Nissan booth throughout the North American International Auto Show, which runs from Jan. 14th through Jan. 22nd at Cobo Center in downtown Detroit.
