Nissan - Blade Glider - delta wing shaped electric vehicle


Nissan is going to display their new concept electric vehicle "Blade Glider", which uses "blade" as its motif, at the Tokyo Motor Show that will start on November 20.

Nissan focused its attention on aerodynamics and the "Blade Glider" has a delta wing shaped exterior that features a narrow front axle length and wide, stable rear axle length, which gives it excellent air resistance.

It also has smooth cornering performance and acceleration performance, while featuring lower power consumption.

Three people can sit inside the vehicle.
