Nissan BladeGlider Concept Supercar Review

Nissan BladeGlider Concept Supercar Review. Inspired by Nissan s radical Le Mans race car the DeltaWing, the Nissan BladeGlider Concept   could be the most outrageous concept car at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.

More than a concept, Nissan says its Nissan BladeGlider Concept  is both a proposal for the future direction of Nissan electric vehicle development and an exploratory prototype of an upcoming production vehicle. Taking design cues from the Nissan DeltaWing and ZEOD RC race cars, the road-going BladeGlider features a narrow, one metre-wide front track ahead of a wider rear end. The goal was to revolutionize the architecture of the vehicle to provoke new emotions, provide new value and make visible for consumers how Zero Emissions can help redefine our conception of vehicle basics. The Nissan BladeGlider Concept has its roots in two unique sources. The supercar is meant to resemble the grace of a glider and the high-performance of an aircraft.

The BladeGlider features a low, flat nose that curves upward in the back to emphasize the large rear wheels, giving the car a triangular shape.

But there is one big difference between the two. While the DeltaWing employs a turbocharged, 1.6-liter gas engine, the BladeGlider Concept  is driven by lithium-ion batteries and two in-wheel motors, a pure electric powertrain. Both aerodynamic and electric, the Nissan BladeGlider Concept benefits from its lightweight carbon fiber underbody. When the car enters production, Nissan says, it may be Nissan’s first car to feature in-wheel motors, which allow the rear wheels to propel independently.

This unique technology and the rear force it provides helps Nissan take liberties with the front end design. By its very nature, the DeltaWing shape with its narrow front 4-inch-wide tires, wide rear track, and downforce maximizing underbody does not need huge rear wings like other race cars to keep it planted to the road. And those narrow front tires develop enough grip to corner at over 120 mph. Having the front wheels close together reduces drag and understeer and enables high g cornering assisted by a 30/70 front-rear weight distribution ratio.

The regenerative brake energy created and cumulatively stored in the ZEOD s batteries during 11 race laps (powered by a small gas engine) can propel the car for one full lap. And it s an extension of that technology, especially those rear located twin in-wheel motors, that we hope will propel the Nissan BladeGlider Concept into the future.
