Nissan Epoch

The Nissan Epoch concept car, designed as an all-electric sedan targeting 'urban and suburban go-getters', hints at the possibility of being a small car. With a focus on design and technology, it's poised to capture the interest of younger generations. Nissan claims that the Epoch is equipped with AI-enhanced Internet of Things capabilities, along with a virtual personal assistant capable of understanding emotions.

Nissan Epic

The Nissan Epic electric crossover shares similarities with the Epoch in terms of both packaging and architecture. According to Nissan, its target audience is 'adventurous city couples who explore on weekends.' Meant for both city and highway travel, the subcompact SUV will have autonomous driving capabilities. Additionally, it will have the capacity for bi-directional charging, allowing gadgets to be charged while camping.

Nissan Evo

The Nissan Evo Concept combines plug-in electric vehicle technology with advanced safety features and intelligent driving. It features improvements in the form of a virtual personal assistant driven by artificial intelligence, which highlights Nissan's dedication to connectivity and innovation in the electric vehicle market.

Nissan Era

The Nissan Era concept is a plug-in hybrid SUV designed for young professionals who love to drive. Although it has a more aggressive front end and a rugged design that seems out of place with its urban focus, it looks similar to the electric Epic concept. The plug-in hybrid crossover has 'zero-gravity seats' and an integrated infotainment system. Regardless of the terrain, it offers a confident drive, thanks to its sophisticated e-4ORCE AWD system and active air suspension.
