With heat waves directly on us in the northern hemisphere, and with most auto executives away on vacation, this Nissan concept provided by Fernando Andrade  screams of summer.

Andrade was quoted as using influences from fluid architecture representing the Rio de Janeiro landscapes of Brazil. Up front, Andrade's concept shares some of the new designs found in the 2016 Nissan Maxima, including the use of the double-V-shaped grille. At the back, the concept sports an open architecture which makes use of a glass canopy that encloses the buggy’s storage rack.

EV?

EV?

Andrade made no mention of its source of propulsion, and with any other manufacturer, it would certainly be up for grabs. But with Carlos Ghosn lead Nissan, c'mon, you know this baby is electric! Well we would hope so anyway.

Looking at this concept, we can smell the beach and hear Mungo Jerry oozing from its call to be born electric!
