The car is tiny – just 145 inches from one end to the other and is a baby hatchback with rather swoopy lines. This all-electric car can seat three with the driver.
It weighs only 1200 pounds and has got rather crazy but cute interiors. The windscreen is a wraparound style and reminds one of a crash helmet. It’s got LED front driving lights with a rear hatch that opens up to a surprisingly large boot. One can put in a fourth seat here as well. The roof slopes down and the center of the doors has a great big angular slash across them below a triangular window.
There’s more. On the windscreen, you have virtual information displayed on a split screen. Of course, the Mixim is absolutely a ‘green vehicle’ and is in line with the company’s Green Program.
Mixim is powered by compact lithium-ion batteries and has Nissan’s ‘Super Motor’ electric motor/generator. Both the front and the rear axles are powered by these Super Motors so in effect, the Nissan Concept is an all-wheel drive.
Clean, green and young – that’s what this car promises. And at a price that is expected to be in the range of 12,000 to 15,000 dollars. It’s got the appeal for the young – will it convert to sales once they are eligible to drive is the question.
