Nissan BladeGlider Concept goes official image

The 2014 Nissan BladeGlider Concept has been officially unveiled ahead of its public debut scheduled for the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.

After pulling the wraps off the second generation of the Qashqai, the Japanese based automaker Nissan has decided to unveil yet another concept car, the so-called BladeGlider. According to the car manufacturer, the new 2014 Nissan BladeGlider Concept has been designed to preview an upcoming production model and it’s basically a stylish roadster with a delta wing shape, a McLaren F1-style in the cabin with a three-person seating arrangement, an aircraft-inspired steering wheel, state of the art instrumentation and some metallic accents.

“The goal was to revolutionize the architecture of the vehicle to provoke new emotions, provide new value and make visible for consumers how Zero Emissions can help redefine our conception of vehicle basics”, said Francois Bancon, the division general manager of Product Strategy and Product Planning, at Nissan, who led the project.

The 2014 Nissan BladeGlider Concept has received rear in-wheel electric motors, which are actually powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. The weight distribution of the car stands at 30 / 70, front to rear, and the chassis is wrapped in carbon fiber reinforced plastic. Additional details on the 2014 Nissan BladeGlider Concept are limited for the moment and will probably be announced soon.
