Nissan has disclosed plans to show this striking concept at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month. The vehicle is known as the BladeGlider and will serve as a preview for an actual production model set to hit dealerships in the near future. This is a rather appealing roadster that has a delta wing shape and an open air cockpit with a three-person seating arrangement that reminds of the iconic McLaren F1. It also boasts a cool aircraft-inspired steering wheel, along with high-tech instrumentation and metallic accents. For the moment there aren’t details about the performance specifications.
However, Nissan mentions the BladeGlider boasts rear in-wheel electric motors which are powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. The concept features a 30:70 front/rear weight distribution and benefits from a structurally optimized chassis covered in carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP).
