Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president for design at Nissan, gives his thoughts on inspiring the Nissan IMs design at the 2019 North American International Auto Show.
Albaisa explains how the IMs shown in Detroit hints at the design direction of future Nissan electric vehicles. He also discusses how the flat floor on the IMs, made possible by the EV powertrain, allowed the designers to rethink the rear and create an indulgent “Premier Seat.”
The Nissan IMs is a completely new type of car – an “elevated sports sedan” that takes advantage of the packaging, platform and powertrain technology developed through Nissan Intelligent Mobility.
