The Intelligent Mobility vision is borne out in Nissan’s IDS Concept. Representing Nissan’s vision for the future of electric vehicles and autonomous driving, the IDS Concept steals the limelight with its highly evolved EV technology, advanced aerodynamic performance, exhilarating acceleration and sophisticated AI capability.
Set to revolutionise the relationship between driver and car, the new concept proves Nissan stands once again at the forefront of automotive technology – developing practical, real-world applications of autonomous drive technology. Bringing innovation and excitement to everyone.
Nowhere is this better exemplified than in Nissan’s award-winning crossover, the Nissan Qashqai. The Qashqai crossover will be the company’s first vehicle in Europe to feature autonomous drive technology when it rolls off the line next year. Produced at Nissan’s flagship manufacturing plant in Sunderland, UK, the refreshed Qashqai will be equipped with ‘Piloted Drive 1.0’, a feature that allows cars to drive autonomously and safely in a single lane in heavy traffic conditions on highways.
From Piloted Drive technologies to a brand new sense of premium styling, are the ‘Premium Concept’ crossovers. Nissan showcased two striking special versions of its best-selling crossovers, the Qashqai and X-Trail. Taking the current models as a starting point, Nissan has explored how a more premium and dynamic design interpretation could enhance and extend the appeal of its award-winning crossover range in the future.
From how the Nissan design language is expressed to how advanced materials are used, both cars offer a fresh take on the widespread appeal of a premium Nissan crossover. Considering the concept of the urban explorer, each Premium Concept has a unique execution and is designed to appeal to a very different customer. In addition, the Qashqai Premium Concept features Piloted Drive 1.0 autonomous technology – the same technology that will be available on the Nissan Qashqai in Europe from 2017.
