Nissan IMx Concept Electric Car Will Turn Into A Serial Model

The concept of electric crossover Nissan IMx presented at Tokyo Motor Show in the autumn of last year, turned out so futuristic that very few people took it seriously as a prototype of the production model. Nevertheless, the head of the European design center Nissan Design Europe, Mamoru Aoki, said that the serial model based on it will be released in the coming years, and it will be not just another electric car, but a real breakthrough in this segment.

“Of course, we have the new LEAF, but I think the [production version of the] IMx concept will become a breakthrough model. The IMx is not just a concept car. In a few years, it will appear.”
