Nissan Teases IMQ Electric Crossover Concept Ahead Of Geneva

Nissan IMQ concept joins the overload of EVs in Geneva

Nissan will reveal at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show an all-new electric concept crossover – the Nissan IMQ. The first image looks a little bit exaggerated with not much window space, but let’s wait for the photos.

It’s one of the two new concepts – IMQ and IMS, for which trademarks were registered in December. The IMS “elevated sports sedan” debuted at NAIAS in Detroit.

“Join Nissan at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show for the reveal of the IMQ concept crossover, an all-new vehicle that embodies the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility and gives a sneak peek as to what might be in your future driveway.”

We guess that the IMQ will be based on the same platform as the IMS and will get a similar 115 kWh battery, which in the case of IMS translated into a range of up to 380 miles (611 km). A dual motor all-wheel drive system is expected to provide up to 360 kW of power and 800 Nm of torque.

Of course, European consumers will also get a chance to see the new 62 kWh Nissan LEAF e+ in Geneva.

Hahahahahaha!!! What in hell is that rendering?? Those tires? No windows? I get it, concepts aren’t really ever built, but what’s the point of this aberration?

They forgot to show the 3 year old kid sticking out of the top, driving this toy car.

Sci-fi movie

It’s just a “little bit exaggerated” :).
I think the drawing looks cool…

Probably won’t have thermal management.

now THAT is a good-looking and totally reasonable vehicle.

EVs have to be adopted by everyone – including the people who prefer this ridiculous styling. We should expect more of this.

Find me a single adult that prefers this styling.

It’s better than the majority of the super dull and boring vehicles on the road today.

It is a teaser for what will be revealed in Geneva Motor Show.
They have intentionally DISTORTED the proportions in the teaser rendering, rather than showing one corner (or a portion of the front fascia) as many others do.

The Geneva Motor Show starts in less than 2 weeks. There will be proper photos of it (with more reasonable proportions) at that point.

Just when I thought I had seen the stupidest concept car…

Will be able to drive on water with these tires.. cool in it self, but they should tone it down to make it look almost possible to build.

I tend to like renderings of “future” cars with features on steroids.. and I look at is as a form of art.

Trying to outdo Tesla with the blade runner inspired cyberpunk look?

Out do Tesla? In off-the-wall styling? Which Teslas are you looking at? The ones I see look like average sedans with plugged-up sinuses.

Nissan said: “…the IMQ concept crossover… gives a sneak peek as to what might be in your future driveway..”

Presenting to consumers bizarro concept cars that everyone knows are never intended to go into production and suggesting that those concept cars somehow represent the future which everyone knows they do not is literally a crazy act that undermines the car makers credibility in the eyes of consumers. Yet legacy car makers continue to do this crazy act.

It’s as though legacy car makers believe they are obligated to deceive consumers.

Do Not Read Between The Lines

Picture of a concept.
Maybe one day humanity will reach enlightenment and ban car shows.
