The Nissan Max-Out is no longer a virtual concept now. To commemorate the Nissan Futures event, which is being presented at the automaker’s global headquarters in Yokohama, Japan, for the upcoming few weeks, the company unveiled a physical representation of its electric convertible concept.
Nissan had launched its ambitious five-year $17.6 billion electrification goal in November 2021, along with illustrations of the Max-Out and a number of other future designs. The Nissan Max-Out has already materialized and will be on view through the company’s event, which is anticipated to last through March.
How does the Nissan Max-Out Look?
The Max-Out is a two-seater with a stance that emphasizes performance and speed. To maximize driver and passenger comfort, Nissan claims that it will offer dynamic cornering and a steering response that is balanced with minimal body roll.
However, its square front end and a recognizable grid pattern on the hood and wheels make one think of riding a light cycle through the digital world of Tron and other science fiction movies from the 1980s. It has undeniable retrofuturistic bonafides.
Nissan’s Future EV Plans
Despite having only one electric vehicle (EV) on the market, the practical but uninspiring Nissan Leaf hatchback, Nissan has long been a market leader in electric car sales. Against a backdrop of corporate unrest, CEO change, declining sales, and pandemic-related cost cutting at Nissan, the company presented the Ariya SUV.
By 2030, Nissan plans to launch 23 new electrified models, 15 of which will be all-electric. By the end of the decade, the corporation wants its Nissan and Infiniti brands to have a 50% electrification mix. Nissan intends to go more slowly in the US, with an EV sales share goal of just 40% by 2040. The company’s Ariya SUV is anticipated to arrive in US dealerships this year.
