It is a powerful electric crossover of 600 km of autonomy the protagonist of the Nissan stand at the Tokyo Motor Show. Equipped with a level 4 stand-alone guide, the 2018 Nissan IMx Concept represents the ultimate expression of the future Nissan Intelligent Mobility strategy, aimed at promoting and realizing alternative mobility.
The ProPilot autonomous driving system evolves to level 4, i.e. a situation in which artificial intelligence is able to manage the vehicle in total autonomy, with the driver in the role of spectator able to take over the control of the car If emergency situations occur. Conversely, when the driver switches from manual to automatic handling, the steering wheel falls into the dashboard and the seats are reclined to provide greater comfort.
He relies on the autonomous Level 4 guide, but winks at the top step, as the IMx is able to move even without passengers on board, for example by going alone to a charging point. An opportunity made concrete thanks to the interaction between vehicle-to-vehicle communication strategies (between vehicles) and vehicle-to-X (between cars and infrastructures), as well as the possibility of both tapping into the power grid and releasing energy – to Example for domestic needs – in times of maximum demand.
2018 Nissan IMx Engine Performance
In terms of performance, the Japanese concept can count on a zero-emission powertrain of 435 hp and 700 Nm of torque consisting of two electric motors – one for each axle – which carry the full traction to electronic management, that is to say without Mechanical connections. Lithium-ion batteries, drowned in the floor, guarantee an autonomy of 600 km. As for the interiors, it dominates minimalism, but with a “green” touch: the Oled instrument panel and the lower display with wooden weft, extended to the door panels, recreate the feeling of being outdoors projecting images of the landscape. High technology, finally, also for the car functions, with the gestures, vocal and through the eyes called to manage all the settings.
