Nissan IDS Concept electric vehicle

Nissan IDS Concept electric vehicle unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in June 2015 embodying Nissan‘s vision of the future of autonomous driving and zero-emission EVs.

In August 2013, Ghosn said that by 2020 Nissan plans to equip innovative autonomous drive technology on multiple vehicles. Progress is well on track to achieve this goal.

Some have compared a future with autonomous drive to living in a world of conveyer belts that simply ferry people from point A to B, but the Nissan IDS Concept promises a very different vision of tomorrow. Even when the driver selects Piloted Drive and turns over driving to the vehicle, the car’s performance — from accelerating to braking to cornering — imitates the driver’s own style and preferences.

In Manual Drive mode, the driver has control. The linear acceleration and cornering are pure and exhilarating. Behind the scenes, theNissan IDS Concept continues to provide assistance. Sensors continually monitor conditions and assistance is available even while the driver is in control. In the event of imminent danger, Nissan IDS Concept will assist the driver in taking evasive action.

In addition to learning, the Nissan IDS Concept’s AI communicates like an attentive partner. From information concerning traffic conditions, the driver’s schedule to personal interests, Nissan IDS Concept’s AI has what is needed to help create a driving experience that is comfortable, enjoyable and safe.

At Nissan’s annual shareholder’s meeting in June 2015, Executive Vice President Hideyuki Sakamoto said: “Our zero emission strategy centers on EVs. We are pursuing improved electric powertrain technologies, such as motors, batteries, and inverters, which will enable us to mass produce and market EVs that equal or surpass the convenience of gasoline-powered cars.”

The Nissan IDS Concept is fitted with a high-capacity 60 kWh battery, and thanks to its outstanding aerodynamics, low stance, flowing form and reduced weight due to its full-carbon-fiber body, the vehicle is also designed to meet the need to drive long distances. Other technologies on the Nissan IDS Concept include Piloted Park that can be operated by smartphone or tablet and wireless charging technologies. Through these, the driver can leave parking and charge to the car.
