Nissan iV is a high-performance EV inspired by nature’s beauty. This super-lightweight sports tourer features “organic synthetics” a revolutionary manufacturing technique in which automotive parts are cultivated like agriculture in a 100% sustainable, carbon-neutral process.
Every detail is engineered toward renewable, lightweight strength and maximum efficiency.
Featuring an interwoven organic frame, the chassis material is synthetically grown and formed into an aerodynamic shape.
The panoramic cabin seats four adults and is constructed from an innovative photovoltaic material that weighs 99% less than traditional glass.
Underneath it all, a slim bio-battery provides stability and a near limit-less range made possible by regenerative super-capacitor technology that recoups 60% of kinetic energy spent.
Nissan’s patented concentric hub-less in-wheel motors not only propel iV, they do triple-duty by functioning as the vehicle’s steering as well as its suspension system, via magnetic levitation and propulsion.
Inspired by schools of fish and their fluid movement, Nissan’s pro-active Safety Shield™ renders collisions a thing of the past and reduces weight by eliminating the need for heavy structures (bumpers, beams, airbags, etc.).
