Nissan Hi-Cross Concept 2012Posted on Friday, April 20th, 2012 in Nissan.
Nissan Hi-Cross is a dramatic new idea vehicle that’ll be displayed in the World Premiere 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
Known as the Nissan Hi-Cross Concept, the proposal examines methods to extend Nissan’s leadership from the crossover market having a possible growth of the present Juke-Qashqai-Murano portfolio. Produced in Japan, Hi-Mix Concept is compact yet remarkably spacious, elegant yet purposeful and – as being a Nissan – it’s clever by using it.
For that Nissan Hi-Cross concept, the HEV drivetrain is dependant on new technology produced by Nissan for front-wheel drive models, but modified to supply four-wheel drive. The brand new system’s innovative method of cost and packaging switches into ‘one-motor, two clutch’ technology associated with Nissan’s new generation XTRONIC continuously variable transmission which alone accomplishes a ten percent improvement in gas mileage over comparable previous generation CVTs. The reduced friction design has more compact shaft-diameter pulleys with a brand new belt to own largest possible ratio coverage for enhanced efficiency.
The hybrid drivetrain makes extensive utilization of battery technology produced for the award-winning Nissan LEAF. Our prime output, fast-charging compact lithium-ion battery, associated with high-level motor control technology, provides acceleration assist if needed and permits downsizing from the gas engine for max economy and pollutants.
Built with an extensively modified version of Nissan Hi-Cross Concept sits on the 2780mm wheelbase. It’s 4660mm lengthy, 1850mm wide and 1670mm tall, with 21-in. alloy wheels. The styling combines existing Nissan design cues with new elements, in front it features a characteristic V-formed grille trigger by distinctive lighting signatures supplied by stylish new headlamps.
