Aesthetically inspired by the recently launched second generation Leaf combined with the "Japanese principles ma (sense of time) and wa (harmony", the IMx features an expansive windscreen, flared front fenders with red inserts, the now trademark V-motion grille and a specific pearl white hue claimed to "describe the beauty found inside traditional kimonos".
Able to function as a full-time autonomous vehicle with Nissan's ProPilot system activated, which retracts the steering wheel when selected, the IMx's interior is said to "adhere to the basic concept of space found in a traditional Japanese house", with a minimalist design consisting of a panoramic OLED instrument display, wood-grain inlays, central touchpad also functioning as a armrest, and a type of gesture control using eye movements and head gestures.
Powered by two electric motors mounted on the front and rear axles, effectively making it all-wheel drive, the IMx is claimed to produce 320 kW and 700 Nm of torque, allowing for a range of 600 km on a single charge. No charging time has been revealed. At present, it remains to be seen whether the IMx will become a production reality.
