2010 Nissan Ellure Concept
Nissan Ellure Concept at LA Show has been came some day ago. Nissan says the Ellure represents Nissan’s commitment to the sedan segment, but not any particular upcoming model.
Ellure Concept powered by 2.5-liter supercharged 4-cylinder engine connected to a 25 kW electric motor driving the front wheels through an Xtronic continuously variable transmission.
2010 Nissan Ellure Concept has aerodynamic design, on thanks to an underbody pan, covered 21-inch wheels covered with clear plates, and those sinuous curves. Also, the grille is inspired by a formal samurai coat, or Kamishino, while the rear takes cues from the Torii gates found on Shinto shrines.
Ellure explore subtle ways to reduce or eliminate body openings that can cause drag, such as the solid yet transparent coverings on the wheels and grilles, without impacting the beauty of the vehicle.
Nissan Ellure Concept’s interior use Molten design, houses a floating center console, incorporates lines from the concept’s exterior to help fuse passenger and passer-by experiences. Also, there is a full wraparound treatment from front to back that starts with the dashboard and moves around the “lounge-like” rear seat. Eco-materials are used throughout, too, like chrome-free “eco-tanned” leather on the dash and eco-suede on the front seats (ultra-suede in back, playa).
