Nissan has unveiled its IMQ Concept in Geneva today, as a design showcase for its next generation of crossovers. It blends Japanese heritage with so called human-centric technology and it is of course, fully-electric.
Powering the IMQ is Nissan’s next-generation e-POWER system, an electric motor drive that’s said to deliver instant, linear acceleration. It’s rated at 250 kW (340 PS) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
The output is channeled through a new multi-motor all-wheel drive system, which on paper should make this concept a very capable off-road vehicle, especially in the snow, says Nissan.
Clean, effortless design
Based on its dimensions alone, the IMQ belongs in Europe’s C-crossover segment. It’s styling however is particularly bold, featuring Nissan’s new design language, where the badge is now integrated into a more subtle V-motion grille.
