Nissan is no stranger to the crossover genre, creating arguably the most successful range of crossovers with the Juke, Murano and Qashqai. No however, the company has taken its vision a step further with its new Resonance concept.

 

Created by Nissan Design America in San Diego, CA, under the direction of Shiro Nakamura, senior vice president and chief creative officer of Nissan Motor Company, the Resonance concept “proposes an all-new dynamic and edgy design that once again leads the trend for the crossover category”.

 

The designers sought to include the concepts of lightness an airiness to the design, both outside and inside, and the surfaces, materials and construction are a reflection of this intent. The boomerang-shaped headlights may be difficult to carry off in production, but with LED technology today any shape is theoretically possible. Thin, steeply-raked A-pillars, a floating glass roof and an upward kink at the rear, which flows into the D-pillar, are intended to give the Resonance a unique look. It is these elements which together conspire to provide the ‘V-Motion’ look the company refers to.

On the inside, the Resonance concept seeks to predict what spacecraft in the future might look like on the inside. Light, buttery leather is used for the seats, while the diffused lighting brings out the natural grain of the wood trims which are used around the cabin. The choice of materials may be traditional, but they are sustainable too, according to Nissan. A large, interactive centre console helps the driver with all systems, and uses a holographic effect with depth of field to create a truly unique interactive experience, bringing that information which is most critical, to the surface.

 

The powertrain also showcases Nissan’s future view of propulsion technology, which is a hybrid petrol-electric drivetrain comprising an internal combustion engine and an electric motor in what Nissan calls “one motor, two-clutch” system.


“Resonance is meant to be provocative, energetic and engaging - even polarizing,” said Francois Bancon, Nissan Motor Co. division general manager, Product Strategy and Planning. “Its edgy yet sophisticated design, combined with an environmentally sensitive powertrain and intelligent utility provides a clear, exciting view into the future of crossover innovation.

This design is not meant to appeal to traditional two-box SUV shoppers, but rather to those whose fashion and design choices make a statement. For Nissan, this concept makes our statement about the future of this segment.”
