Nissan to unveil new concept electric vehicle next week

On February 1, Nissan plans to present a concept electric vehicle. But it looks like the public already saw something similar. The manufacturer released a YouTube video for the Max-Out, which was first unveiled in late November 2021. It will go live the following week. Nissan claims that its next EV will demonstrate what occurs when virtual reality meets reality. Since Max-Out was previously only displayed in renderings, it appears that they have actually constructed the vehicle.

The new electric vehicle characteristics

When the idea was first shown, Nissan stated the two-seater electric roadster benefited from an “ultra-lightweight” build. The Japanese automaker also mentioned that the car had all-wheel drive, which suggests it had a front and rear electric motor.

The sport-style EV had a low center of gravity and the unusual ability to change its seating configuration so that it could flatten into the floor to provide extra interior room as needed.

A dual-motor AWD arrangement known as Advanced e-4ORCE, is Nissan’s lingo for the setup provided by a marketing campaign.

A Leaf prototype with a combined output of 304 horsepower and 680 Newton-meters of torque was used to debut the hardware in October 2019. That much electric power was enough to cause an acceleration that was very responsive but unusually smooth. There were no technical details given for the Max-Out yet.

Looks like electric vehicles are a reminiscence of the oldies

Nissan is ready to unveil the Max-Out in metal, but the public shouldn’t have too high expectations for a production model despite this. There is more money in other areas, such as SUVs and trucks. The convertible market has declined in popularity in recent decades.

It is unlikely that people will rush out and purchase an electric convertible because they are still very much of a novelty. The corporation has bigger priorities than developing a droptop Leaf model; turning the Leaf into a crossover for a 2025 introduction is a higher priority.

When the Max-Out first appeared, they displayed it next to the Chill-Out as a possible sneak peek of the Leaf crossover. They showed a boxy Hang-Out hatchback that resembled a futuristic Cube and the Surf-Out single-cab pickup truck.

Nissan continuously works on new EVs

Nissan continuously works on new electric vehicles. The brand-new Frontier, for instance, sold 115 percent more EVs within the first three months of availability than the previous year. This is according to the maker, who launched it exactly two years ago.

The Japanese carmaker created three concepts. They were shown at the 2022 Chicago Auto Show. Nissan aimed to stress the truck’s success and to showcase the factory and aftermarket extras that are readily accessible for the vehicle.

The three prototypes, which were all based on the 2022 Frontier Crew Cab platform, targeted three distinct mid-size truck audiences. They begin with three distinct Frontier grade levels: S, SV, and PRO-4X. Nissan wanted to demonstrate to customers how they may customize their new Frontiers. It all depends on their individual demands and modes of use through the voice of project lead designer Hiren Patel from the manufacturer.

Nissan’s electric vehicles (EVs) include:

  • LEAF – a compact five-door hatchback electric vehicle first introduced in 2010.
  • e-NV200 – a compact van that is also available in a Combi version for families.
  • Ariya – a compact crossover SUV that is fully electric with a range of up to 300 miles.
