The project was developed in partnership with Nissan over a six months period at the São Paulo-based IED as part of the final thesis of the 2011 Master in Transportation Design.
The brief was to develop an electric sportscar for the year 2025, targeted to the Brazilian market. The students were supervised by three designers from the Nissan’s studio in San Diego.
The interior is split in two sections – hence its name; the first is the cockpit area, focused on the connection between the driver and the car; the second is the passenger area, focused on comfort and safety.
The cabin adopts flowing, modern lines inspired by hi-tech devices and felines.
The traditional analogue instruments are replaced by digital controls and LCD screens which display the vehicle information on different layers.
The final presentation was at the presence of Shrio Nakamura, Senior Vice President & Chief Creative Officer from Nissan Japan, and Vice President Alfonso Albaisa from Nissan San Diego.
