Nissan IDS Concept

Nissan is showing their autonomous driving concept at the Tokyo auto show:

Nissan IDS Concept Foreshadows 60-kWh Next-Generation Leaf - HybridCars.com



I am not onboard with the whole autonomous driving thing, but I like the design, otherwise - a lot! It has a 60kWh battery pack, and so it bodes well for the next generation Leaf, I think.

It reminds me of the Renault Eolab, with a few areas similar to the BMW i8.

It definitely looks cool. The range sounds nice too. I wonder what the cost will be though. Any price increase anticipated for the 30kwh upgrade? Thanks for posting Neil.

I see 5 years of development time between those examples. Or the difference between a concept and a production model. (same thing)

The nose-in-a-box, the base of the A-pillar, the ducktail ...even a hint of an airscoop ahead of the rear wheel even though it's an electric.

I think this article is correct - the IDS Concept is the 2nd gen Leaf in disguise:

I like this concept for the stance and surface development. Have you seen the videos of the transforming dashboard?

Yes, the interior and the autonomous driving stuff seem fanciful, and not realistic.

The glass roof and the large / low splitter are the only things I think will be changed for production - if this is the next gen Leaf. The rear doors being suicide hinged is also a stretch for a family car - but the BMW i3 is reasonable and so this is not a deal breaker.
