Nissan has presented in Frankfurt a new concept car that anticipates the future innovative segment of the guys crossovers. Developed by European and Japanese designers Nissan Gripz Concept anticipates us what the next generation of controversial Juke.
In addition to being a hall to show new models at Frankfurt 2015 also it can be categorized as conceptual salon crossovers. There was almost no brands which do not have one. In the case of Nissan was the Nissan Gripz Concept which has the profile of a sports car but with a height to the high ground to get into places far from the asphalt.
Depending on the brand it is a tribute to the legendary Nissan 240Z Safari Rally winner. In the 70s this model was adapted sports thanks to the knowledge gained in developing the range of 4x4 vehicles of the brand to the demanding conditions of the slopes of the Baja Peninsula the plains of Kenya Uganda and Tanzania.
Marketing aside what we're seeing in images is a small preview of what will be the second generation of the Juke possibly next year or the other. The Nissan Gripz is equipped with a hybrid-electric drive in series based on an electric vehicle (EV). An efficient combustion engine is used to power the electric motor LEAF inherited.
In terms of design it was created in collaboration between the European Design Centre in London and the Nissan Global Nissan Design Center in Japan. Depending on the brand the Nissan Gripz Concept incorporates the concept of sculpture of the body of the new language "emotional geometry" that creates sharp contrasts between surfaces that are at the same time dynamic and soft.
Visible carbon elements have the mission to accentuate the lines as in boomerang shape that has been given to the structure of the front doors. The Gripz has four doors with dihedral front so that open out and up and a pair of rear doors hinged at the rear of smaller size. No B-pillar thereby facilitating access to an interior set to 2 + 2.
At the rear a gate-type Kamm matte black gives effect to the concept of "Codatronca" below the gate while a pair of trapezoidal chrome exhaust outlets are located. The body is quite compact: 4100 mm long 1890 mm wide 1500 mm high and a wheelbase of 2580 mm.
The 22-inch wheels with three-spoke design are also inspired by racing bikes are very light but very robust and are shod with tires of relatively narrow high pressure developed by Bridgestone especially for this concept.
The seats and center console are inspired again on bicycles like door handles which are similar to the saddle design competition bikes. The three-spoke steering wheel in turn replicates the design of the wheels even copying the decorative details of the sidewalls of the tires.
