Nissan Hints At “New Electric Model” Debut At Auto China 2018

APR 23 2018 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 13

But what will it be?

Nissan has again announced that it will present in China three all-electric cars.

The first one will be the second generation of the world’s #1 selling electric car, the Nissan LEAF.

The second is the Nissan IMx KURO concept that hints at a future production “game-changing” electric crossover and a new platform for future Nissan BEVs.

The third car remains a mystery though.

Nissan says it will be a new all-electric car for the Chinese market, but there are no further hints at what we should expect to see.

Luckily, we’ll be on hand at Auto China 2018 to bring you the reveal from the show floor, but in the meantime let’s speculate in Comments as to what we all expect to see. We’ll start first with this guess:

Your turn…

Nissan will show three electric vehicles at Auto China 2018, as part of a lineup that offers an exciting glimpse of the future and shows the company’s strength and depth in the highly competitive and growing Chinese market.

A new electric model will debut at Auto China 2018 in Beijing and take center stage alongside the new Nissan LEAF and the Nissan IMx KURO electric crossover concept vehicle.

The new model will help meet growing demand for electric cars in China and highlights Nissan’s commitment to electrification under the company’s midterm plan, Nissan M.O.V.E to 2022, and Dongfeng Motor Co., Ltd.’s TRIPLE ONE plan. Nissan will also showcase its e-POWER electrified powertrain technology.

Introduced last October, the new Nissan LEAF won the “2018 World Green Car” award at the New York International Auto Show in March. The model is the flagship of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society. With more than 300,000 sold worldwide since its initial launch in 2010, the Nissan LEAF is the world’s best-selling electric vehicle.

The Nissan IMx KURO is making its China debut after being unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. This electric crossover concept vehicle strengthens the link between car and driver as a close, reliable partner that delivers a safer, more convenient and more exciting drive.

The IMx KURO features Nissan’s Brain-to-Vehicle technology, the first system of its kind. The technology interprets signals from the driver’s brain to help the vehicle’s autonomous and manual systems learn from the driver.

In addition to its lineup of electrified cars and technologies, Nissan will introduce the all-new Nissan Terra. The Terra is the first new vehicle from Nissan’s frame and LCV division under the Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022 and TRIPLE ONE plans. Practical, authentic and designed to go anywhere, the frame-based SUV will soon arrive in China to meet customer demand for an unprecedented driving experience.

LEAF sales will improve for March, but how much?

Electric Skyline would be cool, or a proper passenger van. . But my hopes are low.
I think a LEAF with more ground clearance.. maybe with a new name.
That is of course where most sales would be. Maybe with the new larger battery, with proper TMS for people who live in semi desert areas.
Or they just launch the new LEAF with the New larger battery..

An electric Qashqai/Rogue would be what I’m hoping for. It’s their best selling model by far…

Maybe a sport version that does 0-60 in under 9.0 seconds. Now before you go nuts saying that’s not a sport version, it is for the Leaf. Also aren’t they going with LG Chem for the newer Leaf? So they sell their battery division and then discontinue the use of those batteries. They are now supposedly putting in a liquid TMS, which is good, but it points out that their continual defense of their older battery system was misplaced and disingenuous, as recent problems have shown.

lol that was certainly true of the 2017 Leaf and earlier.

But the 2018 Leaf has a 0-60 of ~7.5 seconds fully charged. Similar to the Volt. A Leaf Sport would need to put it in on par with a Bolt at about 6.5 seconds.

An EV Nissan Frontier Quad cab 4×4 would be Efffen awesome!………with Active TMS of course.
🙂

That would be a US-only model. Not very likely; outside the US trucks are commercial vehicles only, not personal vehicles, and to handle siginficant weight and/or towing would require a large battery pack.
Such a truck is in the further future, and low-speed urban delivery vans/trucks are showing up much earlier.

And when exactly does this “auto china 2018” event take place ?

April 25th to May 4th

How about instead of a new electric vehicle, Nissan works on new battery technology?

You mean by doing something like, oh I dunno, selling their in house battery manufacturer and moving to LG chem perhaps…

Or maybe doing something like putting in TMS to protect the single most costly part of the car???

Rogue and/or Murano EV would be a game changer. Come on Nissan, you can do it.

With my patent airinductionchargingandstoragesystem extend distance. Make a EV with 2battery system never stop to charge just switch back and forth to the battery you just charged. Also cools motor for better performance.
