Mixim Concept Car

The
Mixim concept car is a compact vehicle for young drivers who are mostly
engaged by their computer and the world via the internet. The driver
sits centrally, with two seats either side, while the steering wheel
and controls are inspired by the interfaces so familiar to computer
gamers.

Powered
by Nissan's 'Super Motor' electric motor/generator and using compact
lithium-ion batteries, Mixim has unusually rapid performance combined
with a usefully extended range. One Super Motor powers the front axle
and a second drives the rear axle, giving Mixim all-wheel drive.

Mixim
takes the most up-to-date electric vehicle (EV) technology and clothes
it in a svelte and distinctive coup=E9 shape. Its wraparound windscreen,
inspired by the visor of a crash helmet, dominates the profile while
the swept back windscreen, flowing roofline and sharply truncated rear
hints at sporting performance unexpected from an electric vehicle.

Diamond-shaped
styling cues feature inside and out, notably on the twin air intakes to
the rear of the doors and the front LED driving lights, while an upper
triangular side window links the gentle slope of the roof with the
dramatic angular slash that runs through the centre of the doors. The
rear hatch opens to reveal a large trunk area behind the three seats.
An occasional fourth seat is also housed behind the front seat module.

Sitting
on a 2530mm wheelbase, Mixim is 3700mm long, 1800mm wide and 1400mm
high, the Mixim is shorter and lower than Micra, though slightly wider.
It weighs just 950kg.

Despite
being a concept car with no guarantee of being turned into a series
production model, Mixim's development is in line with the Nissan Green
Program, the company's publicly stated desire to create a more
sustainable mobile society.

Throughout the show, the Mixim will be driving from a low stage via a ramp =
to an elevated display platform on the Nissan stand.

Email and AIM finally together. You've gotta check out free AOL Mail!
