Nissan unveiled a strange new electric concept car this week at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2019. No wonder it had a virtual koi fish assistant or it resembled a boxy, Blade Runner -y sedan, or that it sings. No, the new Nissan Ariya concept is strange because of what normally looks like. For the first time in a few years, you can look at the latest Nissan concept and get a real sense of what the company can do with a non-Leaf electric car.
It's on the design side, at least. Nissan did not pervert too many technical details with Ariya, not to mention that it was designed to be powered by a dual electric motor setup that enables four-wheel drive performance. (Which, personally, I think is ironic considering the automaker's team in all-electric racing series Formula E got twin engine setup excluded from the series after quietly using one this past season.)
