Nissan Resonance Concept

We now have the great pleasure of presenting you the new Japanese concept, the Nissan Resonance. The model was developed by Nissan Design America in San Diego and was now revealed at the 2013 edition of the Auto Show held in Detroit. The concept represents the future design philosophy that will follow Nissan from now on with crossovers and the Murano in particular.

If you take a close look in the photo gallery below you can see that the new concept features a floating roof and a so called V-Motion. This starts from the grille, moves through the bonnet and in the end, resonates with the headlights that have a boomerang shape. These extend to almost the base of the A-pillars. We can also see that the body work has a lot of aggressive lines. These are being underlined by the Flair Orange golden paint and also by the satin-chromes 22-inch alloy wheels used to transfer the output to the road. Nissan general manager of product strategy and planning declared in an interview that the Nissan Resonance was in fact inspired by scientific advancement in technology and material innovations. Anyway, we have to give them credit for the great results. The people always looking for something new were also an inspiration and offered them motivation to succeed. The engineers have tried to create a concept that could offer great style and an athletic ride. Everything started from a simple idea of replacing the Murano, a model that will be manufactured in the US, but then things got out of hand. This is how the Nissan Resonance was born.

It receives power from a hybrid power train made of a 2.5-liter internal combustion engine and two high performance electric motors. Next on the list we will find a next generation continuously variable transmission and also a compact laminated lithium-ion battery pack to finish.
