Nissan has unveiled its electrification strategy the future that will lead the Japanese manufacturer to present 23 new electrified models by 2030, 15 of which will be 100% electric. By the end of the decade, the group’s (Nissan and Infiniti) battery car sales mix is expected to exceed 50% globally. The occasion was perfect for Nissan to also present a preview of the design of some vehicles that will arrive in the future through four electric concept cars: Chill-Out, Max-Out, Surf-Out and Hang Out.

The Chill-Out is an electric crossover prototype with curvy lines, built on the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance’s CMF-EV electric platform, the same one used by the Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric. Featuring a sleek and modern design, it mounts advanced driver assistance systems for autonomous driving, while the electric car platform allows the vehicle to make good use of interior space. The car features e-4orce all-wheel drive thanks to two electric motors, one for each axle.

The Nissan Max-Out is a zero-emission concept spider that aims to offer a fun driving experience and at the same time great ride comfort. If the exterior speaks a high-tech language thanks to defined surfaces and cutting-edge LED lights, the interior is transformable. Seat mobility ensures plenty of space on board when the driver is traveling alone (the passenger seat slides into the back of the cabin), while when traveling fully loaded the seating arrangement is traditional.

Ready to take on rivals such as the Rivian R1T, Tesla Cybertruck or Ford F-150 Lightning, the Surf-Out is an electric pickup concept with robust volumes. The vertically developed front end has no grille due to the electric nature of the vehicle, while the Nissan logo stands out in clear letters and the headlights consist of LED lights that follow the circular perimeter of the front end. The Surf-Out is designed for sports and leisure and the rear compartment can also be covered by a hard-top.

With a completely flat floor that extends from the front to the rear, the Nissan Hang-Out aims to provide a new way to spend time on the road. It is designed to keep vibration and jerking to a minimum, thus reducing instances of motion sickness and outside interference while working on the go. The different modes of exterior configurations allow you to change the layout of the interior from a seating area even to a cinema room. Max-Out, Surf-Out and Hang-Out use a new platform designed to use solid-state batteries.
