      Mixim Concept Car

      The
      Mixim concept car is a compact vehicle for young drivers who are mostly
      engaged by their computer and the world via the internet. The driver
      sits centrally, with two seats either side, while the steering wheel
      and controls are inspired by the interfaces so familiar to computer
      gamers.

      Powered
      by Nissan's 'Super Motor' electric motor/generator and using compact
      lithium-ion batteries, Mixim has unusually rapid performance combined
      with a usefully extended range. One Super Motor powers the front axle
      and a second drives the rear axle, giving Mixim all-wheel drive.

      Mixim
      takes the most up-to-date electric vehicle (EV) technology and clothes
      it in a svelte and distinctive coupé shape. Its wraparound windscreen,
      inspired by the visor of a crash helmet, dominates the profile while
      the swept back windscreen, flowing roofline and sharply truncated rear
      hints at sporting performance unexpected from an electric vehicle.

      Diamond-shaped
      styling cues feature inside and out, notably on the twin air intakes to
      the rear of the doors and the front LED driving lights, while an upper
      triangular side window links the gentle slope of the roof with the
      dramatic angular slash that runs through the centre of the doors. The
      rear hatch opens to reveal a large trunk area behind the three seats.
      An occasional fourth seat is also housed behind the front seat module.

      Sitting
      on a 2530mm wheelbase, Mixim is 3700mm long, 1800mm wide and 1400mm
      high, the Mixim is shorter and lower than Micra, though slightly wider.
      It weighs just 950kg.

      Despite
      being a concept car with no guarantee of being turned into a series
      production model, Mixim's development is in line with the Nissan Green
      Program, the company's publicly stated desire to create a more
      sustainable mobile society.

      Throughout the show, the Mixim will be driving from a low stage via a ramp to an elevated display platform on the Nissan stand.
