Nissan unveils new Vmotion 2.0 concept vehicle


General Automotive concept car Nissan

This concept car demonstrates Nissan’s latest design signature called "V-motion".

Nissan combines style, emotional design, comfort and next-gen technology in its latest concept vehicle, the Vmotion 2.0. The automaker revealed its new car at the 2017 North American International Auto Show.

With this concept car, Nissan demonstrated a new design signature called “V-motion”. This 2.0 version goes beyond Nissan’s traditional look by forming an intelligent 3D shape to create the volume and architecture of the vehicle. In this concept, the V-motion grille becomes the main fuselage, allowing for extremely sharp yet expressive surface language, accented by crisp character lines that resonate throughout the body.

This concept car shows off hints of the future of “Nissan Intelligent Mobility”, the company’s vision for a zero emissions and zero fatality future. Following this roadmap, the designers included lighting around the front emblem that glows to indicate when the vehicle is in ProPILOT mode, which will provide autonomous driving support technology on urban roads and at intersections. Wrap-around rear glass and the floating C-pillar also provide an impression of intelligent and efficient aerodynamics.

The silhouette is defined by its “floating roof”. A carbon finisher with thin silver threads accents the roof line and an extended wheelbase shows off the car’s cabin, while the distinctive body surface is defined by Nissan’s “Emotional Geometry” design language.


One of the unique features of the Vmotion 2.0 concept vehicle is its driver and passenger door configuration. The front and rear doors swing outwards, creating a large pillar-less open space.

The dashboard continues the “Gliding Wing” design theme, which integrates the instrument panel and infotainment system for both the driver and passenger. The single continuous horizontal display integrates the ProPILOT graphic user interface (GUI).

Nissan’s Vmotion 2.0 features Nissan Intelligent Driving, providing a safe and comfortable driving experience through technology such as ProPILOT, which is expected to ultimately allow the vehicle to drive in autonomous mode.
