Los Angeles Auto Show: Nissan Ellure
November 18, 2010 § Leave a comment
The work of Nissan’s US design studio, the Ellure concept is only a design study; this glass-roofed four-door saloon is unlikely to see production. However, it shows Nissan’s latest experiments in aerodynamics – check out the deep front bumper spoilers and solid grille with air-deflecting openings, the rear-view cameras in place of mirrors, and the transparent wheel covers over the alloys, with low rolling-resistance tyres. Its engine is a supercharged 2.5-litre, four-cylinder, paired with a 25kW electric motor and CVT gearbox; further fuel-saving features include regenerative braking and electronic steer-by-wire.
