Nissan presented the Friend-ME Concept at thef Shanghai Autoshow. Designed by Nissan’s design center in Beijing, the new prototype is targeted at young people.
It can carry four passengers, it has a central console, which extends to the rear seats, with infotainment systems, which work with smart-phones.
Nissan says that the concept shows what the design of a global production model will be like, and it will feature a muscular design with angular details.
“With its exterior design, Friend-ME addresses a fine balance that middle-class Bālínghòu youth must heed. “We call our solution Distilled Da Qi,” said Taiji Toyota, Vice President of Nissan Design China. “Da Qi is about casting an aura, about standing out, but at the same time going with the flow, fitting in. It’s a question of balance, and we’ve worked to refine it right down to the essence. The result adds an entirely new and youthful dimension to the sedan category.”
