Nissan BladeGlider EV Concept
nissan | November 8, 2013
The three-seater BladeGlider EV concept incorporates a winglike narrow-to-wide-track design that not only reduces drag and improves efficiency, it sets up its driver and passengers with an unobstructed view of the road ahead. We also love how it creates a cockpit-like environment for the driver rarely achieved in vehicles other than single-seaters.
The vehicle features doors which swing out and upward, and the driver’s seat automatically shifts sides to let passengers easily enter and exit the car. Nissan says the design is a study for a potential zero-emission production vehicle which would be based on the same battery technology as the LEAF.
