Nissan Altima-te Ready to Tackle the Great White NorthJanuary 18th, 2019
Nissan has pulled the wraps off another crazy concept car that will be making the car show rounds – this time up in Canada. The Altima-te is much like the Rogue Warrior from a few years back in that it ditches the wheels for tank-like tracks. The tracks let the Altima-te tackle just about any terrain.
Nissan had to widen the car with crazy wide 7-inch flared fenders on each side to cover the treads. The treads measure 48-inches long x 30-inches tall x 15-inches wide. The show car is based on the new 2019 Altima AWD, and Nissan notes that in Canada AWD is standard.
Overall the car is 14-inches wider than normal and its suspension has been raised by 3-inches so the treads will clear. Nissan says the ride took over 250 hours to compete with 150 hours of that work in making the fenders alone. Check it out in action in the video below:
