Introducing the Nissan Xmotion concept, design bridging tradition and technology

Introducing the Nissan Xmotion concept, design bridging tradition and technology”

"With its combination of style and technology, this concept fulfils Nissan's mission of moving people to a better world".

Inside, the design has pulled inspiration from a classical Japanese landscape, with the floor of the vehicle representing a river, and the center console taking the shape of a bridge. Contributing to the mix and match of philosophies is a power stance brought about by tall proportions, large wheel arches, short overhangs with wheels placed far apart from one another, sleek sheetmetal painted to shine, and a purposeful front end that enlarges Nissan's V-Motion grille to provide muscle but uses LEDs to thin the boomerang headlights.

Nissan says the interior symbolizes the Japanese landscape as a nod to the automaker's Japanese heritage while incorporating a host of advanced autonomous driving features and technologies.

The Xmotion is meant to be more than a pretty face, complete with its all-terrain tires, long wheelbase, and three rows of side-by-side individual seats.

The Xmotion's styling theme is highlighted by a retractable "rooftop box" and tail lights inspired by Japanese wood work.

Speaking on the new concept Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president of global design for Nissan said, "In the Xmotion concept, we explored the more rugged and powerful side of Nissan Intelligent Mobility".

The center console is meant to look like a Japanese wooden bridge.

The center console features traditional Japanese wood joinery; the same technique is used to build temples and religious shrines.

Apparently not, according to Nissan.

Nissan has revealed what it calls the Xmotion Concept at the Detroit Auto Show. By using the kigumi structure in the instrument panel and console, the vehicle's interior suggests a robust bone structure, creating a sense of strength and trust. He studies mechanical engineering at Wayne State University, serves on the Board of Directors for the Ally Jolie Baldwin Foundation, and is a loyal Detroit Lions fan.
