Nissan New Mobility Concept
Move over, k-cars — the Nissan New Mobility Concept is probably the most compact vehicle ever to grace the road. This fully electric car produces zero emissions and seats two passengers.
Nissan designed this little jalopy with the aging Japanese population in mind. Although the concept car has a relatively short range, it wouldn’t be too much of a problem for seniors who just need to take short trips around town. That said, driving in the New Mobility Concept might be a little unpleasant in the rain — this compact EV lacks windows, for some reason.
Nissan Rogue Dogue
Yeah, we giggled at the name, too. Despite the goofy name, Nissan takes your pup’s comfort seriously — when survey respondents demanded travel-friendly water dispensers and pet safety features, Nissan whipped up a concept that incorporated these innovations along with a wealth of conveniences for pet owners on the go. The Rogue Dogue has a built-in, non-spill food and water dispenser, a sliding ramp to help small and elderly dogs into the cabin, and an interior filled easy-to-clean materials. Its more fanciful features include a 10-gallon water reservoir for washing muddy paws, along with a built-in blow dryer. But it’s not all silliness — according to the Nissan Vice President of Product Planning, Michael Bunce, 75 percent of drivers think about their pets’ comfort and safety when purchasing a car.
Innovation Comes Standard: Nissan Vs. the Competition
Nissan IMx KURO
The futuristic Nissan IMx KURO is all about the union of car and driver. It boasts Nissan’s cutting-edge Brain-to-Vehicle technology, which reads your brain signals and uses that data to detect your discomfort and predict your actions. For instance, if it notices that you’re about to turn the wheel or hit the accelerator, the IMx KURO will alter its systems to become more responsive. Of course, you’ll have to wear a brainwave-reading bit of hardware on your head, but hey, that’s the price of progress.
