“Brazil is a country of great natural beauty and it has a passionate, rich culture. But this is not always reflected in the cars on its streets, especially the more affordable locally produced vehicles which tend to be conservative in design, colour and specification,” said Shiro Nakamura, Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer.
Although strictly a concept car with no plans for production, elements of EXTREM’s styling can be seen on future Nissan products, for Brazil and beyond.
Vehicle highlights include Nissan’s signature graphics, advanced LED technology, exclusive Solar Cortex body color and a roof pattern, a mix of gloss and matte textures, is inspired by iconic Brazilian graphics. It does look at first sight like a solar panel.
The concept is powered by Nissan’s advanced direct injection and turbocharged (DIG-T) 1.6-litre gasoline engine which shares its technology concept with the powertrain in the innovative Nissan DeltaWing Le Mans race car. EXTREM could also be offered with a choice of front or four-wheel drive with Torque Vectoring for enhanced handling capabilities.
