A few days ago rumors were already heard about a hypothetical electric todocamino from Nissan, ready for the Tokyo Motor Show, and the Japanese manufacturer just unveiled it. It is called Nissan IMx concept and, besides offering a range of 600 kilometers, it is also completely autonomous.
According to the company, this prototype represents the future of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility strategy, which aims to change concepts such as the type of energy used in the car or the relationship between the vehicle and the user, among other things.
The key to this concept is its propulsion system, as it is based on a new platform for electric vehicles, designed to achieve maximum efficiency. With a completely flat floor of the passenger compartment, a large interior space is achieved, but also a low center of gravity for height-to-height behavior.

The IMx is powered by two electric motors, one on each axle, so this is a four-wheel drive SUV. Combined, these two engines develop 320 kW (429 hp) and a generous maximum torque of 700 Nm. The battery, of great capacity (although without detail) promises to offer a autonomy of 600 kilometers with a single load.
The other pillar on which this prototype is based is the technology, and in particular a future version of the Nissan ProPILOT that offers completely autonomous driving. When this mode is selected, the system hides the steering wheel on the dashboard and reclines all seats to allow the occupants to enjoy the ride. However, there is also a manual mode for driving.
Nissan emphasizes that the IMx can, in addition to driving by itself, look for a parking space where you can connect to the power grid to recharge your battery or to return power to the network itself.

The designers of the brand have sought to redefine the interior design, taking into account that the time in the vehicle is no longer to be used driving. Habitability and privacy are two of the key points, but also the OLED instrument panel - controlled by gestures or movements of the eyes of the passenger - or curiously designed seats.
On the outside the IMx is undoubtedly a member of the Nissan family, with the V-motion grille of the house, although it also has characteristic features and a rather futuristic look. The color of the pearly white body is combined with details in contrast in a dark red tone.
