Will the Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept go into production?
It’s January, and that means the North American International Auto Show, also known as the Detroit Auto Show, is back in action. This is where automakers from around the world like to showcase their latest and greatest ideas. Sometimes it’s showing off the newest version of one of their best-selling cars, and sometimes they bring completely new ideas to the table. Such is the case with Nissan and its latest concept car, the Vmotion 2.0. With this impressive concept, Nissan demonstrated what the future holds for its brand and for the automotive industry in general. Will the Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept go into production? Let’s dig a little deeper.
Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept design specifications
If the name Vmotion sounds familiar, you may know it from the current design specification on Nissan models that are already out in the world. The “V-motion” front grille is a defining feature of these models, but the Vmotion 2.0 will take that to another level. The design of the vehicle originates from the V-motion grille and moves on from there. Plus, the V-motion grille on the Vmotion 2.0 will actually light up when the car is in ProPILOT mode (which we will get to in a moment).
The Nissan Vmotion 2.0 is 191.3 inches long, 74.4 inches wide, 54.3 inches high, and has a wheelbase of 112.2 inches. It’s a sleek sedan designed to be aerodynamic, with sharp lines and a “floating roof” feature that are meant to allow it to cut through the air with ease. It has a bold and aggressive stance that will instill confidence in anyone behind the wheel. The look is completed by wrap-around rear glass, signature boomerang-style taillights, and a rear diffuser which glows when the car is in ProPILOT mode.
Inside, the driver and passengers will find a roomy and comfortable cabin. The driver will be treated to a dashboard display that stretches out beyond the ones found in many models out there today. The steering wheel features a unique design to help the driver see the dashboard display without trouble.
Autonomous driving with Nissan Vmotion 2.0 ProPILOT
So what is this ProPILOT mode we’ve mentioned? That is the name for the autonomous driving function of the Vmotion 2.0. Self-driving cars are the way of the future, and Nissan is striving to live in a world with zero traffic fatalities and zero emissions. ProPILOT is one way Nissan hopes to make that happen.
Will this unique concept ever make it to production? It likely won’t anytime soon, at least until autonomous cars are the natural order of things. That said, this concept is not something that is wildly unrealistic, and technology advances quickly every day, so you never know for sure!
