The Nissan IDx concepts originally revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show last year need to be real! They took a trip to Detroit revealing what Nissan has in store for the future. According to Nissan executive vice president Andy Palmer:
“I don’t say that we won’t do both, but we will definitely do one of them. Obviously there’s a debate internally whether you go for the lifestyle one and leave the Nismo one in a slightly different place,” Palmer was quoted as saying by CarAdvice at the Detroit Auto Show.
Nissan sees the lifestyle IDx Freeflow powered by a “1.2-to-1.5L gasoline engine mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT)”, the wider, while a sportier IDx Nismo is envisioned with a powertrain consisting of a “high-performance, eco-friendly 1.6L direct-injection turbocharged engine together with a sporty CVT with 6-speed manual shift mode and synchronized rev control.”
“I think our intention is to be different from the Toyota 86. We’re really looking at sports cars from different angles,” he said. As for the styling of the production car, the executive said it will follow closely that of the concepts.
