Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept

If you reconfigured a Nissan Maxima for work inside the digital code of Tron: Legacy, you'd end up with the Vmotion 2.0 concept.

Created to showcase the evolution of Nissan's design language and the automaker's aspirations for autonomous cars, the Vmotion 2.0 exaggerates many brand features we're familiar with today.

In case you didn't know, the grille design on most of Nissan's current production cars is called "V-Motion," first revealed on the 2014 Sport Sedan Concept. The present Vmotion 2.0 concept doesn't put the grille at the front of the car, the grille is the front of the car, flanked by canted, flamboyant intakes. Hints of the Maxima's "Emotional Geometry" lines remain in the profile, but sheetmetal flowing out of the vent on the front door cribs from the GT-R, assuming Godzilla were on a near-fatal steroid regime. Size-wise, the Vmotion 2.0 occupies a Maxima footprint, 1.5 inches shorter and 1.2 inches wider than the production sedan, on a wheelbase that's 2.9 inches longer. A carbon finisher with silver threads accentuates the floating roof, the copper-infused silver paint changes color depending on your perspective.
The Altima is essentially the same size as the Maxima, and thus dimensionally close to the Vmotion 2.0. It's likely we'll see some of the concept car's design cues on the next generation of Nissan's mainstream family sedan.
