Unveiled at the 2003 Geneva Motor Show, the Evalia was a futuristic vision of a compact family car, created by London-based Nissan Design Studio. Among the features were the parallel opening front and rear doors and the lack of a central B-pillar.


From the original Press Release:

Called Evalia, the innovative design combines coupé lines with hatchback practicality. It was created by Nissan Design in Europe – now fully installed in Nissan’s newly opened design studio in London, England after its transfer from Munich, Germany.

Nissan Evalia Concept (2003)Seen as a potential direction for a contender in the C-segment, Evalia aims to provide the practicality needed by a young family at the same time as satisfying the emotional needs of the image-conscious driving enthusiast.

Among its unique features are parallel opening front and rear doors and the lack of a central B-pillar – vehicle strength is channelled through the sills and roof. By removing the B-pillar, easy access to the passenger compartment is ensured.

Although extremely spacious inside, and with a host of practical storage solutions, Evalia is designed to be more sports car than mini van.

With a coupé-inspired driving position and lowered sports suspension, Evalia means the move into parenthood need not coincide with the end of driving fun.
