Nissan’s IM concept: Introducing the electric ‘elevated sports sedan’

Nissan IMDETROIT– The Nissan IM, unveiled today at the 2019 North American International Auto Show. Therefore it is a completely new type of car. It’s an “elevated sports sedan” that takes advantage of the packaging, platform and powertrain technology developed through Nissan Intelligent Mobility.

While closer to a sedan than a crossover, the IM’s concept’s revolutionary proportions create a vehicle segment all of its own. It is defining by its pure electric-vehicle identity, with the battery located under the body, elevating cabin height. Its stretched interior space, a result of the vehicle’s extended wheelbase. The Nissan IM features unique “2+1+2″ seating architecture with pivoting front seats and a rear seat that either offers three-across seating. In addition or, once the slim rear outboard seats folded, an indulgent “Premier Seat” in the rear center. Thereby worthy of world-class executive travel.

“Advances in electric vehicle technology and autonomous driving have allowed our designers to break free of the platform and packaging rules that constrain traditional passenger vehicles, to create a completely new type of car,” said Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president for design at Nissan. “The IMs explores the limits of sedan design with an approach that elevates the class in both look and functionality.”
