Nissan unveils vision for future EV sports cars with Max-Out concept
The two-seater convertible concept promises to deliver advanced handling, comfort and technology
Nissan has unveiled its latest concept car, the Max-Out, which is a two-seater convertible that serves as a stylish preview of what could be Nissan’s future electric sports car.
It was presented during the Nissan Futures showcase event in Japan, which is a stage used to promote Nissan’s vision for sustainable mobility and design.
Nissan praises its latest creation as providing a “liberating sense of openness while offering an enhanced, dynamic driving experience”, with a focus on dynamic handling and stability. The car also promises to deliver tight handling and minimal body roll.
It rides on a set of uniquely designed wheels, while an open-air vent features to the front - replacing a traditional front grill. A tron-like light bar can be found at the rear of the car, which surrounds an illuminated ‘Nissan’ logo.
The Max-Out's interior features a sweeping digital dashboard display that can be accessed by both passengers, which also means the inclusion of physical controls have been kept to a minimum.
There's also a very space-aged steering wheel, though most interestingly is the absence of pedals - suggesting some high level of autonomous capability.
No specifications for the powertrain have been disclosed, but if the Max-Out moves into production, it is expected to offer Nissan’s latest four-wheel-drive technology, dubbed e-4orce.
