Nissan IMs Sports Sedan Concept Shakes Up Detroit

Nissan IMs Sports Sedan Concept

Nissan is all about innovating and getting ahead of the competition. Now, it looks like it’s doing just that be creating an entirely new vehicle segment with the introduction of the Nissan IMs Sports Sedan concept car.

This vehicle debuted earlier this year at the 2019 North American International Auto Show. Considered the first-ever elevated sports sedan, the IMs concept brings a variety of new features to the table, including never-before-seen proportions and a unique Premier Seat setup, which puts the seats in a 2-1-2 configuration. It is also a pure electric all-wheel-drive concept that also has fully autonomous drive capability.

Nissan based this concept vehicle on the brand’s Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which is Nissan’s vision for how to change the way vars are powered, driven, and incorporated into society.

“Fully embracing the three pillars of Nissan Intelligent Mobility — Intelligent Driving, Intelligent Power, and Intelligent Integration – the IMs concept moves toward the creation of a sustainable mobile society in the form of EVs, autonomous drive, and connected technologies,” said Denis Le Vot, senior vice president and chairman of Management Committee for Nissan North America, Inc.

The vehicle’s dual-electric motor powertrain produces 483 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, while its 115-kWh battery provides an estimated single-charge range of 380 miles. That’s what you call delivering the best of both worlds, and no brand gives you more of what you want than Nissan.

Nissan Sport Sedan Concept at NAIAS

North American International Auto Show is the event, Detroit, Michigan is the place, and the Nissan Sport Sedan Concept is the main attraction. This new concept was revealed earlier this week at the NAIAS, and it is showing off great style and attraction.

“Our new design direction mirrors the strength, power, and capabilities of the engineering and innovation that serves as the foundation of every Nissan vehicle,” said Shiro Nakamura, Nissan’s Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer.

Nissan Sport Sedan ConceptGiving a sporty edge to sedans is something that Nissan likes to challenge themselves at, and the Nissan Sport Sedan Concept is no different. With its slick, smooth style and low, hunkered down stance, the Nissan Sport Sedan takes a four-door sports car to the next level.

Also included in the design is the “floating roof” which makes it seem as if there is nothing above the driver and passenger. The boomerang lights added to the Sport Sedan concept really helps to give the front a mean-looking attitude, and Nissan loves it.

“When you look at how gorgeous that vehicle is, the lines, the styling of that vehicle, inside and out, the interior and exterior, I think that would definitely be a halo and a huge kudo for our brand and our brand image and our relevance in the brand market place,” said Frank M. Diaz, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Nissan.

A lot of people agree that this vehicle is giving us a great glimpse into what the newest Maxima is going to look like, and we couldn’t be happier with that! Bates Nissan is anxious to see what other ideas and sporty sedans Nissan will think of next!
