Designed by senior designer Rodriguez at Nissan s California-based studio, the three-passenger electric features a low, flat and nose and a bodyline that to the cockpit canopy and then forcefully back over the rear wheels.

The biggest was designing around this which is completely new in car design, told Form Trends in an interview. Until the DeltaWing along and proved itself no one considered this a realistic It was a challenge to design it to be highly as it has much innovation and to a degree production engineering all the while it attractive.

At the front, the full width protrude dramatically from the surface, jutting out like ahead of the front fender. Its surfacing in the lower doors serves to accentuate its deltoid which is wrapped in ultra-lightweight fiber reinforced plastic body panels contrasting white with glittering

Rodriguez says the concept was a glider: but I also really to inject more inspiration jet fighters like the F14 and F117 for spirited driving.

With a 1.0m-wide front track and a larger rear track, the echoes the DeltaWing architecture to aerodynamics and balance. Its F1-honed fiber chassis and 30:70 distribution are all benefits from learned in the DeltaWing project, led to the Nissan ZEOD RC that s set to its debut at next year s Le 24 Hour race.

The BladeGlider s developmental focus was to achieve low drag while high downforce. Working in collaboration with aerodynamic the car s clean, contemporary exterior is underscored by a carbon fiber-reinforced underbody that negates the for spoilers.

The BladeGlider employs in-wheel motors in its rear wheels, by lithium-ion batteries mounted low in the and towards the rear to enhance and improve stability. This opens up new possibilities for designers and cabin space.

Inside, the configuration and driver center-forward position call to mind the F1 designed by Peter Stevens.

in lightweight materials and accented by fluorescent lines, the seating has placed at the longitudinal center of to maintain the car’s balance. The s seat automatically slides when the scissor-like door is to enable easy access.

The driving position is designed to the driver’s sensatory experience, an aircraft-type steering wheel and technology. To support maximum EV efficiency, the IT system can display maps and atmospheric conditions to the glider-like image.

“BladeGlider was around delivering a glider-like that echoes its lightweight, hyper-efficient aerodynamic form,” Shiro Nakamura, Nissan’s vice president and chief officer. “This design is than revolutionary; it’s applying our most advanced drivetrain technology and racetrack-inspired in the service of a new dimension of shared pleasure.”
