Nissan unveils the IDS concept at the Tokyo Motor show

Nissan unveils the IDS concept at the Tokyo Motor show

Nissan has exhibited their IDS concept at the Tokyo Motor show. This car showcases fully autonomous driving and zero emission EVs. The new Nissan IDS Concept displays Nissan's key engineering and design technology that they will be incorporating in their upcoming vehicles after 2020. 

The car boasts of two driving options - Piloted Drive or Manual Drive. The former mode enables the car to be completely driven automatically with the help of sensors, while the drivers and passengers can relax in the cabin with the seats rotating inward. In this drive mode, there is only one switch that can be physically operated by the driver. Called as the PD Commander, this switch is located between the front seats and needs to be enabled when the driver is ready to take charge of driving. The latter, or Manual mode, puts the driver in control of the vehicle, while the IDS technology still works in the background and takes control if it senses an imminent danger.

The IDS concept boasts of a futuristic design with carbon-fibre construction. The car is a compact vehicle with an aerodynamic shape constrained to a height of 1,380 mm to minimise the aerodynamic drag. It gets fin-like vertical fenders in the front and rear to help the car cut efficiently through the air. The car is powered by a 60 kilowatt-hour electric drive unit designed to also meet the need to drive long distances.

Carlos Ghosn, president and CEO, Nissan, said, “Nissan’s forthcoming technologies will revolutionize the relationship between car and driver, and future mobility. Nissan Intelligent Driving improves a driver’s ability to see, think and react. It compensates for human error, which causes more than 90 percent of all car accidents. As a result, time spent behind the wheel is safer, cleaner, more efficient and more fun."
