The new Nissan IDx Concept will hit the production line as the carmaker will offer a version of the model in question quite soon.
The announcement has been made by the Japanese based automaker’s executive vice president, Andy Palmer, who has recently spoken to the guys at Go Auto. According to our source, the Nissan IDx Concept will receive a production version which will slot below the 370Z in terms of positioning, pricing and size and this means that it will most likely become a rival for the Toyota GT 86 and Subaru BRZ.
“One of those two [concepts] will go into what we call our midterm plan. Now, whether we do both remains to be seen. I am not saying that we won’t do both, but we definitely will do one of them”, said Andy Palmer.
The production of the Nissan IDx FreeFlow was hinted, when the model in question was introduced, to get a 1.2 liter to a 1.5 liter petrol engine, which should be mated to a CVT (continuously variable transmission). The Nissan IDx NISMO was said to receive a 1.6 liter turbocharged unit under its hood, with a 6-speed manual or a CVT. Additional details on the subject remain unknown for the moment.
