The Nissan IMx, an all-electric crossover concept vehicle offering fully autonomous operation and a driving range of more than 600 kilometers, was unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The innovative concept vehicle provides a glimpse into the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan’s approach to changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated with society. It’s designed to strengthen the link between car and driver as a close, reliable partner that delivers a safer, more convenient and more enjoyable drive.
By offering unprecedented enjoyment in motion and the ability to control the vehicle’s drive mode, the Nissan IMx aims to transform the everyday life of drivers.
“The IMx zero-emission crossover concept vehicle embodies the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility,” said Daniele Schillaci, executive vice president for global marketing and sales, zero-emission vehicles and the battery business. “Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan is committed to changing the way people and cars communicate, as well as how cars interact with society in the near future and beyond.”
According to The Verge the all new EV from the house of Japanese giant has more to do with the people around this car than it does with the driver. Like all other electric vehicles , there is lack of engine noise and this is the biggest turnoff for car buffs, however it’s a genuine concern for pedestrian safety. And so instead of being ultra-quiet like most other electric vehicles, this car — and other EVs in Nissan’s future, the company says — “sings” to let people know that it’s coming. Nissan’s calling this suite of sweeping sounds “Canto,” as in Spanish for “I Sing.”
