Nissan BladeGlider at 2013 Tokyo Motor Show (Photos and Videos)
Announced two weeks ago, the Nissan BladeGlider had its worldwide debut at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show.
This “deltoid-shape vehicle“ was created for “gliding” instead of “driving.”
Here’s the rest of what Nissan says of its eye-catching BladeGlider:
NISSAN BladeGlider – Leading Edge EV Technology Drives The Future
From “driving” to “gliding” in a hyper-agile and ultimately efficient EV, NISSAN BladeGlider shifts the engineering paradigm to reveal a new dimension of driving fun and excitement. Aerodynamically-focused, Nissan BladeGlider offers drivers and passengers a new sense of glider-like driving pleasure, evoking exhilaration through its nimble and intuitively controlled handling that stems from its swept-wing form and gliding roots.
Disrupting and challenging the status quo, the NISSAN BladeGlider shares sustainable engineering values with both the Nissan LEAF and the Nissan ZEOD RC, the futuristic-looking competition machine which will make its debut in next year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race.
“Electrifying” the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the Nissan ZEOD RC is just the first step in changing the face of motorsport and making it once again relevant to what we actually drive on the road. This is Nissan’s challenge to redefine the existing concept of motorsports competition.
The NISSAN BladeGlider on display on the stand is not just for show. It demonstrates the innovation and excitement of the Nissan brand and Nissan’s Zero Emissions Mobility leadership as an exploratory prototype of upcoming production vehicle.”
Between the lines we read that something from the BladeGlider is an object of interest for production, but what could it be?
